Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion tease new song
Megan Thee Stallion recently took to Instagram to drop the release date of the single along with photos of Dua Lipa and her own face imprinted on cakes. The latter also took to Instagram Reels to share a small snippet from a private Instagram DM between her and the rapper discussing the new song.
The collaboration between the two viral artists could be the next big thing this year in the following months. Given how much traction both the artists have received for their music, it won’t be surprising if the song ends up going viral. Last month, the “Don’t Start Now” and “New Rules” star kicked off a huge North American tour just. In wake of Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion’s latest collab, the latter will be joining the former eventually on the tour.
What have the two musicians been upto?
As for Dua Lipa, this release comes about in the midst of her ongoing struggle with two back-to-back copyright infringement lawsuits over her viral hit “Levitating”. The singer-songwriter was hit with the first lawsuit by Florida reggae band Artikal Sound System and received the second one from songwriters L. Russell Brown and Sandy Linzer. The singer is yet to release a statement regarding this.
As for Megan Thee Stallion, things are quite the opposite. The rapper recently filed a new lawsuit against her record label over a debate on what qualifies a record to the title of an “album”. Megan’s team has reiterated that her latest release “clearly meets the definition of an ‘album'” when 1501 Certified Entertainment (her record label) tried to block her from releasing new music. The end result of this feud is yet to come out.
But amidst all this chaos, things have been looking up for both Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion because of the upcoming new song. We sure as hell cannot wait for it to come out!
