A little after 3 pm yesterday, Megan thee Stallion dropped a remix to her 14th ranked top 100 song on the Billboard chart, Savage. Now this is not an ordinary remix, Meg surprised the world and got no other than the Houston native, Beyonce' to drop not one, but three verses on the track! The artwork for the remix (below) features a stallion to symbolize what Meg refers to herself as and a beehive, an ode to the Beyonce's fan club, the Bey Hive.
Hours after posting the song was available to be streamed, Meg went live on Instagram to let the world know just how special this moment was for her, collaborating with Beyonce'. She said, "It's really crazy cuz my momma really was a huge fan of Beyonce' and made me watch a lot of Beyonce' stuff." She goes on to talk about how excited she is Beyonce' did a song with her even though she has only been out for 2 years, with this year being the beginning of year two for Meg.
The song reached the top spot in the US on Apple Music. This is the first time a female collaboration has reached the #1 spot on the chart. The song will more than likely climb spots on different music ranking charts over the coming weeks, as people begin to make Tik Tok dances to the song, helping it to chart, since it isn't able to get played in clubs right now due to social distancing guidelines.
To make the collaboration even more monumental, the two Houston Hotties decided that ALL the proceeds of the song will be donated to a disaster relief organization, Bread of Life, in Houston to benefit COVID-19 relief efforts, adding to what BEY GOOD, Beyonce's non profit is already doing to support the relief efforts.
The ladies have been doing such great work with helping alleviate the concerns from COVID-19 that the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner announced that the city will be honoring Meg and Bey with their own official days. He said, "Because of both artists' contributions to uplifting our communities, holding down HTown, and for helping us remain #HoustonStrong our city will present both artists with their own respective days."
If you haven't listened to the song yet, here is the link to listen on the Jay-Z owned, Tidal, of course because it's Black-owned and we support OUR people.
Meg and Bey did what needed to be done! On the track and in their Houston community. Keep them feet on our necks ladies!!!
