Megan Thee Stallion opens up in new album, ‘Traumazine’: “I wanted to take control of my own narrative”

Megan Thee Stallion‘s new album, Traumazine, has arrived. 

After a week of teasing the project, the second studio effort from the self-proclaimed Hot Girl arrived midnight Friday. The album boasts 18 tracks, including previously released songs “Plan B,” the Future-assisted “Pressurelicious,” and “Sweetest Pie,” featuring Dua Lipa

Traumazine is split evenly when it comes to solo songs and collaborations, each with a total of nine tracks. In addition to Future and Lipa, Megan’s other collaborators include Key Glock, Latto, Pooh Shiesty, Rico Nasty, Jhené Aiko, Lucky Daye, Sauce Walka, Big Pokey and Lil Keke.

Hours before the album’s release, Megan teased that the Hotties — her dedicated fans — “are definitely gonna hear the more personal side of me the more vulnerable side.”

“I feel like they are going to be able to better understand why I am the way I am. Why I’ve started to be the way that I am,” she added.

Megan elaborated during an appearance on Thursday’s The Tonight Show, where she told host Jimmy Fallon she treated the album “more like writing in my diary.”

“It looks like everybody knows me, and they have a perception of me, based on probably what other people say or what they see on the internet or just something that’s not me at all,” she shared. “And I feel like this time around, I wanted to like let everybody in my head and like, you know, form their own opinion based off of my story. I wanted to take control of my own narrative.”

Traumazine is available to purchase and stream now.
