Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion and Young Thug have kept their word on delivering new music to the masses. The hip-hop pair have come through with their new “Don’t Stop” music video premiere.
Don’t Stop Is A Must-Watch
The visual features Thugger channeling his inner Edward Scissorshands while Meg dominates the majority of the camera time in multiple outfits and slays. Stallion goes the Disney route with plenty of notable Alice in Wonderland references.
Megan Thee Stallion has recruited Young Thug for a new song called “Don’t Stop,” sharing a new video with it. The track arrives ahead of her debut as a Saturday Night Live musical guest on the show’s season premiere this weekend (October 3). The video features heavy Alice in Wonderland themes (except for Young Thug, who cosplays as Edward Scissorhands). Check out “Don’t Stop” below. With the song, Meg announced that she has a new studio album on the way this fall, but hasn’t shared further details. (Pitchfork)
