In the sultry Enchanted Forest video, Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa are the “sweetest pie.”
Two of music’s biggest names have teamed together for one banger of a song. With ‘Sweetest Pie,’ Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa teamed up for the hottest video of the year (so far).
Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa may have just dropped the first huge hit of 2022, and it’s incredibly nice. On Friday (Mar. 11), the two celebrities released “Sweetest Pie,” which was accompanied by an extremely steamy music video.
Megan and Dua led spectators into a magical biblical-style forest, where they teased, “You’ve never been to heaven, have you?” (before offering to take the mysterious guys on the “ride of their lives”).
Meg wears a plunging black leather gown and Dua wears a gold embroidered black suit with a crimson lip in their first shot together. “Oh, honey, we’re going quickly — I’ll drive and you just relax.”
As the camera pans to a bunch of boys making their way to where they are, Dua sings, “I’ve got the flavor to last.” Megan assured that “hot girl s–t” is “cold every season.”
As she danced around in a strapless gold bejeweled body suit with a thong cut, the Houston native looked stunning. She remarked suggestively in her rhyme, “Booty like a cushion, he can use it when he’s sleeping.” She then twerked topless in a green silk skirt.
The two ladies are then tied up on fire by a bunch of men in the forest, who appear to be angry. Despite the forest being destroyed, Dua and Megan appear to be unharmed among the rubble, looking stunning in their sultry outfits.
Megan and Dua teased the collaboration on social media on March 6 with photos of Megan and Dua’s faces on cakes. Then they revealed the song’s title, “Sweetest Pie,” which goes well with the dessert theme. Megan will open for Dua on the second half of Lipa’s North American tour, and the collaboration comes ahead of that.
Megan was asked about the mashup of Dua’s “Levitating” and Cardi B’s collaboration with Ms. Stallion, “WAP,” in June 2021. According to Uproxx, Megan added, “Someone asked me about Dua Lipa, I love Dua Lipa, she’s so fire.”
“I really want to collaborate with Dua Lipa on a song.” I spotted this mashup on Twitter and thought it was hilarious.” “I adore you, [Megan.]” Dua wrote on her Instagram Story in response to Megan’s compliments. “Let’s go get it!”
“Sweetest Pie” might be the start of Megan’s album tour, which would mark the start of the end of an era. She sued her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, in February, saying that her 2021 album, Something For Thee Hotties, did not fit the legal definition of a “album.”
According to Megan’s lawsuit, 1501 advised her that Something For Thee Hotties, a collection of free-floating singles and B-Sides, didn’t match the definition of a “album” in her recording contract. Megan has a contractual obligation to the label to release a set amount of albums. Megan would only have one more album left on her deal with 1501 if Something for Thee Hotties was added towards the total, according to Billboard.
Megan’s lawyer, Steven M. Zager of the law firm King & Spalding LLP, told Billboard that Megan’s contract granted the label the authority to select what goes toward the album total, and that Megan was warned from the start that this would not count against [her] album total…
She can’t just hand us an album that we don’t like and say it fulfills her recording contract.” He also told Billboard that Something for the Hotties included a lot of previously released songs on it, which seemed to dismiss the concept of “Greatest Hits” or “Rarities” compilations.
“The intended outcome of its conduct is clear: 1501 intends to bind [Megan] to release further albums under the contract for the financial benefit of 1501,” her lawyers allegedly said in the lawsuit. “This is in conflict with the contract’s clear and unequivocal conditions.”
Megan publicly sued 1501 in March 2020, claiming that the label was preventing her from releasing her EP, Suga, after she requested a contract renegotiation. She said that 1501 took 60% of the money she earned from her recordings (and that they take 30 percent of her tour and 30 percent of her merch revenue.) A temporary restraining order was issued, allowing her to distribute the music. According to Billboard, she and 1501 negotiated a new agreement in March 2021 to alter her contract.
Megan’s debut studio album, Good News, was released in November 2020. If Something For Thee Hotties is Megan’s second “album” under the contract, a third album – the first single from which may be “Sweetest Cake” – could represent the end of her time with 1501 Entertainment.
Dua, on the other hand, is dealing with her own legal issues. Two copyright infringement cases have been filed against her song “Levitating.” The first came from Florida reggae band Artikal Sound System, who claimed Dua’s song “Live Your Life” was plagiarized. According to Rolling Stone, songwriters L. Russell Brown and Sandy Linzer have filed a second complaint alleging that Dua’s song infringes on their 1979 disco classic “Wiggle and Giggle All Night.”
