With Megan Thee Stallion’s month-long break over, fans are busting at the seams waiting to hear the new music she’s been working on during the hiatus. Megan announced her return with the arrival of “Thot Shit” on Friday (June 11) and fans can’t get enough of the suggestive title of the song.
On Thursday (June 10), a fan on Twitter asked Megan Thee Stallion what inspired her to make a record like “Thot Shit” and the Houston native said it’s a moment for her to take ownership of words that have been long deemed harmful and derogatory towards women.
“I’m really just talking shit and taking ownership of the words ‘thot’ and ‘hoe’ bc they’re not the drag the men think it is when trying to come at women for doing them,” Megan wrote on Twitter.

According to a statement, “Thot Shit” is a song “that celebrates women unapologetically enjoying themselves, doing whatever they want, whenever they want, regardless of what the critics have to say.”
By the sound of it, “Thot Shit” looks to be another anthem, much like Megan Thee Stallion’s previous records. All this news shows Megan could be picking up right where she left off before taking her break from her monstrous run in 2020.
On April 22, Megan announced her break with an animated clip showing her sleeping inside a liquid chamber with a digitally typed message for her Hotties explaining her upcoming absence and how her team will be managing her social media accounts.
“Megan Thee Stallion is recharging,” it reads. “Due to the demands of the Hot Girl lifestyle Meg has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what’s next. ….In her absence; mgmt will manage all social posting on behalf of Thee Hot Girl Coach. [[Thee Hotties]] lead a brave //RESISTANCE in anticipation for the return of their Fearless Captain!”
