“Sweetest Pie” by Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa
Without beating around the bush, it is reasonable to postulate, as more or less verified by the onset of Megan’s first verse, that the term “sweetest pie” serves as a euphemism, if you will, for the vocalist’s honeypot. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who is familiar with Thee Stallion’s songs especially. And with that mind, there really is no need to engage in an overly in-depth analysis of this piece.
Dua Lipa holds down the second verse, in addition to serving as the chorus’s main vocalist. And to reiterate, whereas it would be clear to any semi-mature mind that she’s talking about sex, relatively speaking, as in relation to her co-vocalist, Dua’s lyrics are artistic.
Meanwhile Megan, being a very-graphic female rapper, does not restrict herself with such strivations. That is to say that her lyrics are a lot more blunt and overtly NSFW. And there are some slight intricacies to what she’s saying which detail, to some extent, her relationship with whatever guy(s) she’s rapping about.
But what it all boils down to, more or less as usual, is Megan’s honeypot, most basically put, being so ‘tight’, ‘sweet’ or however she puts it that she has dude “whipped”, as in under her spell, so to speak. But in contrast, Dua’s terse non-chorus verse points a bit more to the idea of her being smitten instead of vice versa.
In any event, the thesis sentiment of this song is fundamentally an invitation to sex. So basically the ladies are letting the guys, perhaps we can say lucky enough to turn them on know that they are in for a pleasurable experience between the sheets.
Facts about “Sweetest Pie”
Megan Thee Stallion, a rapper from Houston and Dua Lipa, a singer from London, co-headline this track.
“Sweetest Pie” has 11th March, 2022 as its official date of release.
Both vocalists get songwriting credit for this piece, as do Clarence Coffee Jr., Nija, Koz, Sarah Hudson and OG Parker. And OG Parker, a musician from the A-T-L, co-produced the track with Romano and Platinum Libraries (Lil Homie and Johnny Homen).
This collaboration was Megan Thee Stallion’s idea. And she and Dua Lipa first got around to teasing it in February of 2022.
Dave Meyers directed the music video to this track, which was thematically inspired (as apparently advised by Megan) by the legendary Hansel and Gretel fairytale.
As of the writing of this post, “Sweetest Pie” has had a modest chart showing in the US and Canada. However, it is more than likely that it will perform better as time progresses, considering that both Lipa and Thee Stallion are concurrently A list musician artists. For instance, a couple of days after its release, Billboard reported that this track was “fan-voted favorite new music” of the week.
