Megan Thee Stallion’s debut album, Good News, is finally here.

In addition to fire new tracks, the rapper’s new 17-track LP features previously released singles “Savage (Remix)” that features Beyoncé, “Don’t Stop” with Young Thug, and “Girls In The Hood,” which samples Eazy-E’s “Boyz-n-the-Hood.”

The LP also features collaborations with a number of other high profile artists such as 2 Chainz, Big Sean, SZA, DaBaby, City Girls, and Popcaan

Good News opens with “Shots Fired” which addresses her July shooting by Tory Lanez, who is facing one felony account of assault with a semi automatic firearm and one felony account for carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle (he has pleaded not guilty). On the song, she raps “You shot a 5'10" b*tch with a .22.” Later on in the song she talks about seeking justice from police brutality, rapping, “Now here we are, 2020, eight months later and we still ain't got no f*ckin' justice for Breonna Taylor.”

Along with the album’s release comes the video for “Body,” a high-octane twerk anthem that appears on the tracklist. In the must-see clip, Megan dances with a number of backup dancers and Taraji P. Henson, who has previously revealed that she’s been a long time fan of the rapper.
