Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Rebirth’ Takes Centerstage on Upcoming Album

Megan Thee Stallion is looking at her third album as a “rebirth” for herself as she continues exploring her next era of music.

The Houston Hottie posed nude for the cover of Women’s Health on Wednesday, (April 10) where she teased what fans can expect with her upcoming project.

“I was inspired to create this album about rebirth because I feel I am becoming a new person physically and mentally,” she said of shedding her old skin.

Meg expanded on the snake motif and serpentine theme she’s deployed on her single titles with “Cobra” and the Hot 100-topping “Hiss.” “They’re feared, misunderstood, respected, healing,” she said.

In the past, the 29-year-old has struggled with combining vulnerability with music that’s still hard-hitting and staying true to herself.

“I’ve always struggled to figure out how to be vulnerable and still make music that is going hard at the same time,” she added. “I’m getting into a better space with making music that is still true to myself but also true to my message. I am very much a flower, but my flower has thorns.”

Her forthcoming album will be the first to arrive since Tory Lanez was sentenced to a decade behind bars last year in the 2020 case, in which the R&B singer shot the “WAP” rapper multiple times in the feet following an argument outside a Hollywood Hills house party.

“A lot of people didn’t treat me like I was human for a long time,” she said. “I feel like everybody was always used to me being the fun and happy party girl. I watched people build me up, tear me down, and be confused about their expectations of me. As a Black woman, as a darker Black woman, I also feel like people expect me to take the punches, take the beating, take the lashings and handle it with grace. But I’m human.”

It wasn’t until Megan started therapy which she credits for jumpstarting her healing process. The Houston native works out four to five times a week with a regimen that includes the gym, pilates and beach exercises.

“Before I went onstage, I would be crying half the time because I didn’t want to [perform], but I also didn’t want to upset my fans,” she admitted. “I didn’t want to get [out] from under the covers. I stayed in my room. I would not turn the lights on. I had blackout curtains. I didn’t want to see the sun. I knew I wasn’t myself. It took me a while to acknowledge that I was depressed. But once I started talking to a therapist, I was able to be truthful with myself.”

Megan Thee Stallion’s last album, Traumazine, arrived in August 2022 and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
