Since popping off, Megan Thee Stallion has had no issue backing up all of the praise she’s received. With drops that hit and live sets that glow, the Houston born artist doesn’t disappoint when it comes to showcasing her talents. Over the weekend she dropped by “Saturday Night Live” for their first show with an audience. What the world got was what Texas already knew, that the rapper is ready to get her voice out while also dropping an epic performance.
Performing the track “Savage,” the rapper not only delivered an on point performance of the track, but sent powerful messages throughout. Mocking President Donald Trump, protesting the Breonna Taylor ruling and sending power to respect all black women was just part of the performance. Featuring a speech from Malcolm X, the words of Tamika Mallory on Daniel Cameron and the phrase “Protect Black Women” on the wall behind her. It was a landmark moment for the long running show and for television as well.
You can watch the performance above or on Peacock or on YouTube. You can stream her latest single “Don’t Stop” on all streaming sites or purchase it in all digital music retailers.
