We Weren’t Ready: Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé Drop ‘Savage’ Remix for COVID-19 Relief Efforts

On Wednesday, April 29, Megan Thee Stallion shook up the nation by surprisingly dropping a remix of her hit song “Savage” featuring Beyoncé. The H-Town Hotties released a fire single and joined forces to donate the proceeds to COVID-19 relief efforts for their hometown.

Proceeds from the single will go to Bread of Life, a disaster relief organization that responds to life disasters. The nonprofit is working to provide meals to Houston families during the pandemic.

The original song turned into a TikTok dance challenge to go along with its “classy, bougie, ratchet” lyrics. But in the remix, most listeners gravitated toward Beyoncé’s reference in potentially joining the popular platform, OnlyFans. “Hips TikTok when I dance/ On that Demon Time, she might start an OnlyFans (OnlyFans),” she raps during her second verse.

While OnlyFans became a marketing tool for social media influencers and celebrities, it’s known for its adult content. The platform, created in 2016, is a place where people can pay a subscription fee for photos and videos. Megan’s songs typically contain explicit rap lyrics. She explained in a recent interview with Marie Claire that a lot of men aren’t comfortable hearing lyrics that don’t put them on the receiving end of a particular sex act.

The “Savage” remix skyrocketed to number one on Apple Music and iTunes just hours after its release, and fans couldn’t be more proud of the 25-year-old rapper’s evolving career.

“Meg got Beyoncé on a track this early in her career that’s major 💯🔥.”

“I loveeeee everything about Meg 🙌🏾😍❤️ I’m soooooo happy for her!!”

“She deserves all of it!!!!”

“Yasssss🔥👏🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽. Love this, love them. You go girl!!! You make that remix with Queen B.🔥🔥🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 all praises.”

The two music icons broke the internet overnight, so it’s unlikely that Queen Bee will start an OnlyFans account. The company, however, responded to Beyoncé’s lyrics in a statement with Rolling Stone. “Beyoncé, and any artist, are welcome to join OnlyFans at any time to foster a deeper connection with their fans,” they wrote.
