‘Girls In The Hood’ is Megan’s fourth single for 2020, following ‘Diamonds’ with Normani, ‘FREAK’ with Tyga and ‘B.I.T.C.H’. The third song featured on her third EP, ‘Suga’, which she released in March. ‘Suga’ garnered positive reviews from fans and critics, peaking at number 7 on the Billboard 200 chart.

“And I was like … what? Shut up. Shut up. You’re lying. Beyoncé don’t want to get on nothing with me. Come on, it’s me! I know I’m Megan Thee Stallion, but dang!”
