Megan Thee Stallion is back with her newest single, “Pressurelicious.” It includes guest vocals from Future. 

Megan has been giving sneak peeks at the single since last month. However, she officially revealed the release date and song artwork on Wednesday with a series of posts on her social media handles. 

The song’s producer, HitKidd released their latest work three hours ahead of the usual midnight release: “since it already leaked lol,” Megan elaborated. 

Megan discussed her new album in an interview with Rolling Stone, mentioning that it will be released soon and includes a contribution from Future.

“He’s just so fucking ratchet!” Megan said in the interview with Rolling Stone’s Mankaprr Conteh. 

“He is unapologetically himself. I appreciate that about anybody who gets up and has to do anything in the public eye. Anybody who has to read about their life online every day and deal with so many energies and can put it out into their music and do it gracefully, I feel like you deserve your flowers,” Megan further said. 

In April, Megan performed at Coachella in Indio, California, for the first time, in which she announced a new song while on stage. She revealed the track “Plan B” not long after it and dropped a music video with Casey Cadwallader and John Miserendino as directors. 

The rapper has also been honored with her own day in her birthplace, Houston, where she was given the key to the city. 

She also recently joined many artists who expressed their protest during performances about the revocation of Roe v Wade.
