Watch Megan Thee Stallion Discuss Her ‘Traumazine’ Album In New Apple Music Interview
Megan Thee Stallion today joins Nadeska and Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 for an extensive conversation about the making of her new album Traumazine.
During the conversation, she tells Apple Music about her headspace while making the project, taking control of her narrative, making an album for herself and breaks down various tracks on the project, including Anxiety, Scary, Consistency, Not Nice, and more.
She also reflects on the passing of her mother, what she loves about collaborators Rico Nasty and Jhené Aiko, Tina Snow’s appearance on the series ‘P-Valley’, and much more.
You can watch Megan’s Apple Music conversation in full in the full-length video below, but if you scroll down, you can sample a flavour of the chat as the star discusses the writing of Traumazine and taking control of her narrative.
“Usually when I write songs… I could be sad and I’ll write a song like Body”, she says. “Or I could be pissed off and I’ll write a song like Freak Nasty. I don’t write songs about how I feel, I write songs about how I want to feel. So I feel like on this album, it’s probably the first time I figured out how to talk about what I want to say… express myself a little bit more.”
“So that’s just how I’ve been living life. And I feel like it’s been so easy for people to tell my story for me, speak on my behalf because I’m a nonchalant person, I feel like. And people be talking about me and I be like, okay. But like I see now that it can get out of control so I feel like I wanted to just take control of my narrative, take control of my own story. Tell it my way, tell it from me.”
“…I just don’t be talking about how I really feel in my music”, she adds. “I could never really figure out how to talk about how I felt and still make it sound good. Like, how can I get on here on a beat that I like and talk about something that I might be sad about?”
