While chatting with Ebro Darden on Apple Music, Meg said that the collaboration made her emotional. ““I woke up and I was like–because I knew the song was coming out, but, it was still like, ‘Is it really gonna drop? Are we doing this for real for real?’ And, I mean, I cried… like, I had to call my grandma.”
“I really can’t believe it, because being from Houston, Beyoncé is just Queen,” she noted. “That’s all you know. There’s no debate, there’s nothing else to say — who’s better than Beyoncé?”
The “Hot Girl” rapper also reminisced on meeting her idol for the first time. “They had a New Year’s Eve party at the house, so, no, it didn’t come from that day, that was like legit my first time meeting Beyoncé.”
“Oh my God, we really danced all night. I was really in there cutting up,” she continued. “I was like, ‘Wow, Beyoncé accepts my turn up. She likes Ratchet Megs and I love it.'”
So how did the Bey x Ratchet Megs collab go down? “I got a call one day, and they were like, “Yeah, Beyoncé’s going to do a remix of ‘Savage,’” and I was like, ‘Shut the f— up.’ I didn’t believe it,” Megan said.
“I talked to her after the song came out — she was just super supportive,” she continued. “Every time I see her she’s always telling me, ‘Keep going, keep going hard, you really got it — do you.’ She’s somebody that really inspired me too, so just to know that Beyoncé even has heard any of my music or just has watched me as an artist come up doing what I’m doing and that she’s rocking with me enough to even do a song with me, that’s really something that touched my heart because I looked up to Beyoncé since I was like young.”
“It just seemed like a dream, but in the back of my head, I just always knew that at some point in my life I have to do a song with Beyoncé,” she concluded.
