Megan Thee Stallion is giving fans some “good news” on Instagram — and delivering it by posing in the buff, covered by only a newspaper.
The rapper took to the social media site on Thursday to share a racy picture of herself in the nude, strategically covering up by holding a newspaper in front of her body. The words “Good News” were written on the top of the paper’s front page, representing part of the rapper’s announcement about her debut album of the same name. The paper also contained what looks to be its cover image, showing Megan wearing a skintight outfit and matching cowboy hat, all made from newsprint.
Megan wore large jewelry and had her curly red hair spilling over her shoulder in the image, which attracted a lot of interest. It racked up more than 1 million likes and drew thousands of comments from fans excited to see her new work and full of compliments for her curvy physique.
“AHHHH I SO EXCITED,” one fan wrote.
“It’s the BODY for me,” another added.
Megan shared other posts promoting the new work, including another one in the nude but that time showing her flipping her hair up with an excited look on her face. In the caption for the second Instagram post, she shared the big announcement about her long-awaited work. You can view that photo here.
“Hotties, I first want to say thank you for riding with me, growing with me, and staying down with me since my first mixtape Rich Ratchet!,” Megan wrote. “Through this rough a** year we’ve all been having I felt like we could all use a lil bit of good news. So with that being said MY OFFICIAL ALBUM ‘GOOD NEWS’ IS DROPPING NOVEMBER 20TH PRE ORDER WILL BE AVAILABLE TONIGHT #GOODNEWSMEGAN”
The news drew some interest beyond social media as well, with a number of news outlets noting the big and long-awaited announcement. As Spin noted, there had been plenty of speculation from fans about when Megan would be releasing the album, and the announcement finally put a date to it. The release comes after a number of hit singles, including her headline-grabbing collaboration with Cardi B for “WAP.”
Fans seemed more than ready to learn when her first full-length would be coming out. In the second-to-last image she shared, many commented that they were hoping the racy post was her way of announcing the date.
