Megan Thee Stallion Ends The Need To Rely On Fan-Made Mashups
What a team-up this is! Icons Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa pair up for their tasty new track “Sweetest Pie.” The collaboration marks the first between the two. This comes after fan-made mashups of the artists’ music kept circulating. Because of this the Grammy-winning artist, Megan, decided an official collaboration had to happen. With Zane Lowe, she says, “I be seeing everybody making mash-ups of me and Dua songs and I’m like, ‘No, this sounds too good. We have to make a song.‘”
The candy-coated track is beaming with sexual confidence and provocative innuendos. First, Lipa opens the song with a sultry “You’ve never been to Heaven, have you?” Kiss-Me-More-synths and hi-hats surround the production of the song. With Lipa on the chorus she sings, “Hold on ’cause, baby, I might / I might just give you a bite of the sweetest pie.” The melody is so smooth, and perfectly matches the seductive lyrics.
Then, Megan flows in the first verse in a way only she knows how to. It is tight, well-sung, and full of clever lyrics precisely delivered. She tantalizes with “That body lookin’ nice / I got cake and I know he want a slice.” She then ends with a reference to Hansel and Gretal – the inspiration for the even sexier music video.
The Duo Are Seductive Witches In The Music Video
In the video, you see Lipa and Megan as witches (the sexy kind of witches of course) luring men into their sugary hut. The Dave Meyers-directed video shows the two in multiple different looks – all of which are spectacular. After trying to cook the captured men to tender perfection, they eventually get captured by all of their victims. Only, the poor men aren’t near strong enough for the two’s lustful power.
Easily, I see this track working its way to the top of the charts in due time. Not only are Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion both at the top of their games, but their collaboration on “Sweetest Pie” is cohesive and well-executed. Finally, the song is expected to be the first from Megan Thee Stallion’s second studio album, a follow-up to 2020’s Good News.
