Twitter users praise Megan Thee Stallion’s new album ‘Good News,’ lead track ‘Shots Fired’

Megan Thee Stallion’s latest album dropped Friday – and listeners are taking to social media with their reactions to the rapper’s project.

“Good News” (out Friday) follows a headline-making year for the rapper including mega-hit “Savage” and her “WAP” collaboration with Cardi B. Now, she’s taking hold of her own narrative with the 17-track debut studio album. 

The buzz surrounding her album’s release appears to be good news for Megan herself, with Twitter users praising the project.

“This whole album SIS @theestallion it’s so many BOPS,” user @Drebae_ tweeted.

“How am I supposed to focus on this final when Megan THE stallion just dropped a new album,” user @AJ__CJ tweeted.

“My Queen Megan Thee Stallion came for y’all’s necks #MeganTheeStallion,” user @CristinaOrozco_ said.

“Megan Thee Stallion cant make a bad song: a thesis,” user @bigkennothedon tweeted.

“Megan Thee Stallion is the best thing in rap music right now. Look at the material,” user @Titanbaddie said.

Some praised the music video for “Body,” which dropped at the same time. In the video, the rapper dances to the catchy, empowering track, which celebrates – you guessed it, her body. There are also cameos from Taraji P. Henson, Blac Chyna, Jordyn Woods and more.

Glee alum Kevin McHale tweeted, “Holy (expletive) this is the best video and choreo I’ve seen in yearssssssss @theestallion is DOING IT #BODY”

Actor Colton Haynes shared a photo of himself and this message: “My reaction after watchin the new @theestallion #Body video…I’m still in shock. One of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Damn.”

“I’M GONNA BE WALKING ROUND THE HOUSE SINGING “BODY -ODY -ODY -ODY -ODY -ODY -ODY -ODY -ODY” user @CertifiedHotti3 tweeted.

Others spoke specifically to the album’s leading track titled “Shots Fired,” which seemed to focus on rapper Tory Lanez, who allegedly shot her in July. 

Without naming him, she appears to comment on the incident.

“Imagine (expletive) lyin’ ’bout shootin’ a real (expletive) (Huh?) / Just to save face for rapper (expletive) you chill with,” she raps. “You shot a 5’10” (expletive) with a .22 / Talkin’ ’bout bones and tendons like them bullets wasn’t pellets…”

“2 seconds into megan thee stallions album, and she ALREADY talking about tory,” user @kenyonjaree said.

“Sooooooo MEGAN really just opened her album SHOOTING SHOTS AT TORY AND BOYYYY…. SHE BODIED TF OUTTA HIM,” user @itszamzam_ tweeted.

“notice how megan addressed the situation in ONE song, compared to the lawn gnome making a whole 17 song album saying a whole lot of nothing,” user @houstonhotti said

“Tory Lanez had an entire album about the situation but Megan addressed his (expletive) and devoured him with one song. I know he embarrassed #GoodNews,” user @TheSupporter8 tweeted.
