It’s official. Meg body-ody-odied the game again. With seven nods this year including ‘Best Female Hip Hop Artist,’ Megan Thee Stallion joins DaBaby as the most nominated artists overall at the 2021 BET Awards, It’s shaping up to be another hot girl summer for Megan, and the 25-year-old is sure to stop the show like she did in 2020, when she performed in the middle of a Las Vegas desert. Social distancing didn’t stop Meg from showing out and it’s no surprise when you check her history. Since her career jumped off, Meg has been blessing both BET Awards and BET Hip Hop Awards audiences with the hottest on-stage moments we’ve seen in years.
We’re sure she’ll bless us with more this year, and until then, check out these five on-stage moments we’ve loved most from Megan thus far:
The 2019 BET Awards Pre-Show got an early look at Meg’s superstar potential. Her breakout hit “Big Ole Freak” was already killing the charts by then, and after she took the stage there was no doubt that superstardom was on the horizon. Just two years later, Meg is headlining the big stage and, tied with DaBaby, leads all artists in nominees. That’s just how hot girls rock. And it’s why we’ll be glued to the screen to see how far she takes it this year.
Megan Thee Stallion shined bright in 2019 when she was given the BET Hip Hop Award for mixtape of the year. The whole music world knew that Megan’s star was rising and BET was early to give her flowers for dominating the rap game from day one. Meg rocked a fiery red suit while accepting the award from fellow MC Dave East who showed much respect for her early domination of the rap game.
Megan Thee Stallions first ever BET stage performance at the 2019 Hip Hop Awards was of her early hits “Cash Shit” and “Big Ole Freak.” The big stage was no match for Thee Stallion’s talents as she absolutely crushed her set with killer moves and one of the sexiest moments of the night. She opened the awards, hosted by Lil Duval, with a patriotic performance of “Hot Girl Summer” and “Cash Sh*t” with DaBaby.
Megan's Mad Max-themed performance at the 2020 BET Awards brought the heat in the heart of the pandemic. Despite a national quarantine, Megan bodied her first-ever performance on the BET stage, going all out with a show-stopping set that was inspired by the classic Sci-Fi film Mad Max. Her all-black leather ensemble made it impossible to look away while our heads bopped to her flawless live rendering of “Girls in the Hood.” She kept things racy she hopped on a motorcycle before crushing her smash hit “Savage Remix.”
Meg kept killing ish from a social distance in 2020 when she accepted her Best Female Hip Hop Artist award virtually. Her curves were on full display in an all-black get up that highlighted her effortess sex appeal. As a leading nominee for the 2021 awards with seven nominations, there’s no doubt that Meg will find a way to deliver more viral moments at this year’s ceremony.
Tune in Watch the 2021 BET Awards on June 27 at 8/9C p.m. to see if Meg will take home more awards to add to her collection.
