It’s really hard to be the first something in 2022, so ah!” the star told the outlet.

In an accompanying interview, Megan opened up about her most recent album Traumazine, and explained that its deeply personal lyrical content made hernervous.

This album was really personal to me. This is like the first time I ever talked about things that I’m feeling, or talked about things that I’m going through, so it kind of made me nervous to write a lot of these songs,” ela disse. “It makes me nervous to perform some of these songs. And I kind of just was like, 'OK, I’m gonna write this stuff and I’mma just put it out. Hm, Hotties, what you got to say about this?'”

Megan released Traumazine, her second studio album, em agosto, and the record includes hits likeAnxiety,” on which she dishes about how she deals with stressful times, including the grief she feels over her mother’s death.

My emotions sometimes make me a little nervous. Like to be vulnerable can make me a little nervous sometimes, tão, Eu não sei,” ela disse Forbes. “I feel like I’m just still processing how the album feels to other people.

The Grammy-winning rapper said that upon the album’s release, she held two meet-and-greet events with fans in New York City and Los Angeles, and had many people tell her that they found her new music relatable. The conversations stuck with Megan.

It made me feel happy that the time I did decide to be vulnerable and talk about something I was going through, it was one of the favorites from all of my fans, and I really appreciate it and they made me feel comfortable, like it’s OK to not be OK and it’s OK to tell y’all I’m not OK,” ela disse.
