AceShowbiz - Megan Thee Stallion has treated her devotees to a brand new 3-D animated video for "Savage". On Thursday, May 21, the "Hot Girl Summer" rapper released the highly anticipated visual for her third single off "Suga" EP, presenting herself as a futuristic crime fighter who seeks to take down evil organization.
Described as "a futuristic tale of assassins set in day-glo animation" in the press release, the less-than-three-minute video sees "a one woman army taking down an evil entity from the inside," and is claimed to have strengthened the song's status as "an manifesto for powerful women across the universe." It combines Megan's love of anime and her signature rap sound.
Hours before dropping the video directed by Jude MC, the 25-year-old rapper hyped up the anticipation by sharing a short teaser on Instagram. Accompanying the clip, she wrote in the caption, "Been working to make the anime video look like a game and a sexy ass anime movie lol what y'all think ? Y'all want it today ?"
This video for "Savage" came weeks after Megan released a high-profile remix version of the hit track with Beyonce Knowles. Dropped in late April, the remix gave the song a boost to the top spot on Rolling Stone's Top 100 Songs chart. It is currently in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 for the third week. It also helped Megan make her debut on the Billboard Songwriters Chart.
Megan herself has been announced as one of the headliners for this year's "GMA" Summer Concert Series. Joining a lineup that includes Katy Perry, John Legend, Mariah Carey, Sia Furler, Bebe Rexha and the Black Eyed Peas, the "Diamonds" rapper is set to perform on August 21. She has also joined the judging panel of HBO Max's ballroom competition show, "Legendary", which will premiere on May 27.
