Houston hottie Megan The Stallion and pop star Dua Lipa seem to bring out the best in each other creatively.
On Friday (March 11), Megan Thee Stallion delivered the vividly spooky, and sexy music video for her bold “Sweetest Pie” collaboration with Dua Lipa and promptly jumped on Twitter to discuss how her love for films of the horror genre inspired the release.
“I see that the #SweetestPie video scared some people or creeped them out a lil bit… lol MISSION ACCOMPLISHED how many times do I have to say I love horror films/ aesthetics,” she wrote.
Along with listing a few of her favorite thrillers, which include the 1981 version of Evil Dead directed by Sam Raimi, Meg also replied to a user who appeared to accuse the Good News MC of promoting sinister imagery in the Dave Meyers-directed “Sweetest Pie” visual.
“The symbolism of the video was how when men come for me I eat they ass up every time and even when y’all go on y’all’s witch hunts attacking women for whatever reasons y’all make up we still rise from the ashes stronger than ever,” Megan The Stallion wrote.
Megan The Stallion also gave even more context on “Sweetest Pie” during her appearance on the Dua Lipa: At Your Service podcast with the Future Nostalgia vocalist on March 11, revealing there were multiple versions of the track even before Dua Lipa’s vocals reached Meg — which inspired Meg to rewrite her verse yet again.
“I wrote so many versions of this song,” Megan Thee Stallion said. “Finally, when I heard your voice on it I was like, ‘No – I need to rewrite all of this. It’s not good enough [for you]’.”
Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion went on to discuss a number of stimulating topics, including challenges women face in the male-dominated music industry, Meg’s role in the movement to protect Black women and more.
The Warner Music signee has been successful in her pop-crossover attempts previously, after recruiting DaBaby for her “Levitating (Remix)” in October 2020. Dua Lipa has recently been battling copyright claims associated with the hit that allege she stole material from songwriters L. Russell Brown and Sandy Linzer’s 1979 song “Wiggle and Giggle All Night” in addition to “Don Diablo” from 1980.
