ARTIST OF THE MONTH: MEGAN THEE STALLION

Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion started writing her own rhymes by the age of 16, but didn't make serious moves until she posted a series of video clips on social media a few years later. She gained attention in 2016, first with a standout verse on various-artists rap showcases and when videos of her freestyling became popular online. Her first official single was 2016's "Like a Stallion," and her presence in the Houston rap circuit was solidified by decimating all opponents in local freestyle competitions.Megan's first studio album, Fever, arrived on May 2019, complete with features from Juicy J and DaBaby. The album hit number ten on the Billboard 200, further cementing Megan's rise. She landed a pair of hits with the attitude-driven "B.I.T.C.H." and "Savage," both of which appeared on the EP Suga. Throughout her career, Megan Thee Stallion has received several accolades, including two BET Awards, five BET Hip Hop Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, a Billboard Women in Music Award, and four nominations at the Grammys.With her smash hit “Savage,” taking off initially on TikTok before going global with a remix featuring Beyoncé and “WAP,” her chart-topping raunch-a-thon duet with Cardi B, Megan created a smart, rowdy forum for complex ideas about gender, race and sexuality. In November 2020, Megan Thee Stallion released her debut studio album Good News. The release of the album also coincided with its fourth single "Body" as well as its music video.Stream Megan Thee Stallion's GOOD NEWS here.

A TRAVIS SCOTT-BRANDED PS5 GAME MIGHT BE ON THE WAY!

PlayStation recently signed a creative partnership deal with Travis Scott. Earlier this year, Travis sent waves throughout the gaming industry with his virtual concert in Fortnite. That digital event broke Fortnite records, with over 12.3 million concurrent players tuning into the online event. During the virtual concert, Scott also debuted a new song, 'The Scotts' featuring Kid Cudi. This, consequently, attracted lucrative deals from many top brands, including PlayStation.A recent Forbes profile of Scott claims that a co-branded PS5 system between the rapper and Sony might be in the works, as part of his recent "strategic creative partnership" with the gaming company.However, Scott has remained tight-lipped about the potential releases, telling Forbes that “it’s all going to roll out in the next couple of weeks”.Recently, PlayStation posted a blog regarding its creative partnership with the artist and hinted at what fans can expect.“Travis is an artist who is incredibly innovative, constantly surprising, and continues to push boundaries, very much like the PlayStation brand – so we think this is a perfect fit. When we embarked on this collaboration, the most important thing was to keep it as open as possible, to allow space to explore interesting, creative ideas.”There might be an underlying hint in Travis’ response to this.“I’m really looking forward to being able to showcase everything that Cactus Jack has worked on with Sony and the PlayStation team. Most importantly, I’m excited to see how the PlayStation fans and family respond, and I look forward to running some games with everybody very soon!”Last month, the rapper dropped a pair of Playstation-branded shoes with Nike, which he also has a partnership with. The shoes were the first launch after he was announced as a Strategic Creative Partner for Sony. Earlier this year, Scott also launched his own McDonald’s meal. The Cactus Jack meal, named after the his record label, was available until October 4 and included a Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon and lettuce, fries with BBQ sauce and a Sprite.
