STORY OF SONG
“Savage” is the second track from American rapper Megan Thee Stallion (Megan Pete) and her EP “Suga”. It is Stallion’s most successful song – primarily due to the song going viral on entertainment app “TikTok”, leading users to create a dance to the track. “Savage” was written by Stallion, Anthony White and Bobby Session Jr, with production done by J.White Did It (Anthony White).
“Savage” is a trap-rap song about being a strong and empowered woman and not needing a man to be happy. The track’s engineer Eddie “eMIX” Hernandez has stated that Stallion recorded the song in under an hour. “The collaboration was going on at the same time. We were building as the song was forming. While he [producer J. White Did It] was laying down the snares and the kicks, she was writing to the skeleton of the beat. Once he had the production all ready and sent it over to me, she was ready to go. She had all her writing done. Her recording? She knocks them things out”.
There is currently no music video for the track, however there are two videos on Stallion’s YouTube channel, one official audio that has 23 million views since its upload one month ago, and a lyric video that was uploaded 3 weeks ago, which has 20 million views.
