Megan Thee Stallion‘s sophomore album, Traumazine, is finally out today after much anticipation. Having teased the album title on Instagram back in August as “difficult emotions induced by traumatic events and experiences,” this 18-song project is expected to be one of her most vulnerable bodies of work to date.
Among the many guest appearances on Traumazine are those of Key Glock, Latto, Pooh Shiesty, Rico Nasty, Jhené Aiko, and Lucky Daye. Singles “Sweetest Pie” with Dua Lipa, “Pressurelicious” featuring Future, and “Plan B” are also featured on the project. The posse cut “Southside Royalty Freestyle” contains appearances from Sauce Waka, Big Pokie, and Lil Keke.
Her followers accurately guessed that the term Traumazine would be the name of her upcoming album after she posted a cinematic trailer video for the project earlier this week. Encompassed into the twenty seconds of footage, the Hot Girl rapper could be seen dressed to the nines for a funeral. She made a dramatic entrance wearing an all-white ensemble and laid a single rose on top of the coffin. Threatening piano music played continuously in the background. It was a dramatic departure from her first album, Good News, with its solemn and gloomy tone.
Megan praised her hotties on Twitter for their support as she worked through “lingering label troubles” to finally reveal her album Thursday morning. In relation to her contract with 1501 Certified Entertainment, she also informed her audience that “We almost out” and that the next album will be the “final one.” On Twitter, she added, “Y’all know I always have problems with dropping my music under this label.”
