    As was the case with Suga, Good News feels like a transitional project; it’s just not so clear where the artist is going.

    Amid a pandemic, and while recovering from a gunshot wound, the superstar rapper made an album that purposefully celebrates life. Her beats are playful, and her rapping is as sharp as ever.

    Raw and ruthless, ‘Good News’ is the sound of Megan Thee Stallion pushing against the boundaries imposed on her until they break. Embracing some of the viral tropes that surround her, she’s able to own them, and transcend them, before moving on; she’s working at her own pace, owning her own destiny. The latest headlines are in: ‘Good News’ is a triumph, and a late contender for Album Of The Year.

    The Good News about this album is that Megan exceeded expectations by delivering a memorable debut project. Everything about Megan's debut album screams empowerment wearing a pair of heels. Many of the song listings on here carry heavy themes of remorseless living and a blatant disregard for those disagreeing. The authenticity of her sound and the sincerity of her delivery takes this project up a level. Megan is the running headline but she reminds everyone in her debut that she's still the one controlling the narrative.

    While Megan Thee Stallion presented herself as a force to be reckoned with from her earliest material, Good News finds her triple-X-rated sex rhymes, imposing charm, and ability to make it all appear effortless reaching new levels.

  • Beats Per Minute

    The production on Good News is hardly subtle, and few of these beats would stand out on their own, but they’re effective at supporting her flows and keeping the energy going.

    Every song on the album is unique in its theme but still fits Stallion’s typical hip-hop vibe. Each track has a specific inspiration behind it and sends its own message. All of the work that went into this proves Stallion’s prominence in the rap game of today.

  • Flood Magazine

    Good News gives us the pimp, the party girl, and the polished diva. Not every track is a platinum banger, and there is one already-poorly-aged Tiger King reference. But Good News isn’t meant to be a simple introduction. It’s Megan Thee Stallion at her most agile and hi-def. It’s our invitation to the coronation of this generation’s hip-hop royalty.
