Body (Megan Thee Stallion)

Body (Megan Thee Stallion) Description

Body” is a song by American rapper Megan Thee Stallion. It was released on November 20, 2020 by 1501 Certified Entertainment and 300 Entertainment as the third single from her debut studio album Good News (2020). It coincided with the release of the album and was supported by a music video featuring cameo appearances from Taraji P. Henson, Blac Chyna, and Jordyn Woods, among others. Megan wrote the song during the COVID-19 quarantine and was inspired by her own figure during the creative process.

Composition and lyrics

“Body” is an up-tempo erotic song, containing an NSFW-like” sample of a woman sexually moaning as well as “huge drums” and “thick synth bass lines”. Lyrically, Megan brags about her desirability, being the envy of other women and the fantasy of their men. The chorus primarily features the rapper consistently repeating “body-ody-ody-ody”. The verses incorporate Megan Thee Stallion’s signature “raunchy” lyrics containing sex appeal.

She stated that she was inspired to write “Body” while she was appreciating her body during the COVID-19 quarantine, stating: “I’m like walking around the living room, freestyling, and appreciating my quarantine body ’cause I feel like I got a little fluffy and thick, and I was like, ‘Baby I still look good'”. She revealed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that the song was aimed at celebrating body positivity in “all bodies”.

Critical reception

Earmilk‘s Kalen Murphy called “Body” a “bawdy track where Megan reclaims full control of her sex appeal and sells temptation like none other”. Critics from Nylon described the track as “a crisp three minutes of bouncy beats and self-confident lyrics” which “embodies Meg’s no-f*cks-given attitude in the best way”. Carl Lamarre of Billboard wrote that Megan Thee Stallion “salutes curvy women on this body-positive record”, while describing it as a “Twerk-worthy bop”. Brooklyn White of Essence also agreed that the rapper “continues her mission of empowering women of all different kinds to be confident in their own skin”.

Reviewing the song’s parent album, Alexis Petridis of The Guardian praised Megan for her “lyrics teeming with sharp and funny lines” throughout the album while referring to a line from “Body”: “all them bitches scary cats, I call ’em Carole Baskin”. In this line in particular, the rapper refers to Baskin, an animal rights activist who had previously criticised the use of big cats as props in her and rapper Cardi B’s music video for “WAP“.

Live performances

Megan Thee Stallion performed “Body” for the first time at the 2020 American Music Awards. She performed a medley of “Body” and “Savage (Remix)” on the 848th episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden in December 2020.

TikTok challenges

Similar to her song “Savage” which gained popularity through a viral dance challenge on the video-sharing platform TikTok, Megan Thee Stallion chose to promote “Body” in the same way. Unlike the dance for “Savage” which was choreographed by TikTok user Keara Wilson, Megan Thee Stallion and choreographer JaQuel Knight self-originated the #BodyChallenge dance, which is also performed in the song’s music video. In a separate trend, TikTok users would also the “Body” audio to exhibit their own bodies and promote body confidence.

Music video

The music video for “Body” was directed by Colin Tilley and features choreography from both Megan Thee Stallion and choreographer JaQuel Knight. It was released alongside both the song and album on November 20, 2020. Megan Thee Stallion engaged in a livestream premiere for the song’s music video as part of the YouTube Originals’ Released series. At the premiere, she told fans, “You’re going to see all body shapes, a lot of strong women doing the damn thing. Just being confident and owning their bodies and their sexuality”.

Celebrities who make cameo appearances in the music video for “Body” include Taraji P. Henson, Blac Chyna, Jordyn Woods, Maliibu Miitch, Asian Da Brat, and Tabria Majors. Throughout the video, the women “confidently groove on a futuristic set and on a spotlit stage”. Various fashion publications praised the outfits worn in the video. Megan Thee Stallion initially wears a black, mesh body suit which emphasizes her curves, as well as “an oversized coat with a bedazzled bodice with nothing underneath”.
