“Savage” by Megan Thee Stallion
“Savage” is another track in which Megan Thee Stallion presents herself as a boss chick. In fact she applies the titular attribute onto herself. And when all is said and done, what it ultimately boils down to is she having somewhat of an obnoxious mean streak, so to speak. For instance, she exercises complete control over her romantic interests. And in that regard she puts forth that she is able to do so because she has a bangin’ body. Megan also depicts herself as living that street life, which includes dissing female rivals and also levying threats against men who decide they want beef with her. And one of the main reasons she is able to present herself so apparently has to do with the fact that she is indeed paid.
So succinctly put, this is a song in which Megan is touting her perceived superiority. And in terms of her being a “savage”, what that means is that despite her being “classy” and “sassy”, she can also be “moody” and “nasty”.
