"Hot Girl Summer"

"MEGATRON" is a song by Nicki Minaj released on June 21, 2019. After a 3 month hiatus from social media, Nicki returned to Twitter with a cryptic tweet simply stating "MEGATRON." The next day she posted pictures of the music video shoot to her Instagram with the caption "#Megatron + #QueenRadio 6/21". The following day she posted a behind the scenes clip of the music video shoot. The track samples "Ting-A-Ling" by Emperor Ranks and "Heads High" by Mr. Vegas. Upon talking about it on Queen Radio, Nicki revealed that she wanted to release "MEGATRON" months prior, but her label wouldn't allow her to. The track is a stand alone single which means it is not connected to any album/bigger project.  

MEGATRON Challenge

The MEGATRON Challenge was an online contest launched by Minaj on July 5, 2019 and was set to end on July 21, 2019. The challenge was to perform a dance/rap remix to the MEGATRON beat and impress Nicki enough to win. The first place prize was $10,000 and getting flown out to meet Minaj, the second place prize was $5,000, and the third place prize was $1,000. The challenge was open to rappers/singers (only solo) and dancers (solo or in groups). Throughout the month Nicki posted her favorite challenges on her Instagram. As the final date got closer Nicki decided to create 2 winning spots, as there were so many videos she loved. On an Instagram live on July 27, Nicki decided to extend the final date of the challenge. The 1st place winner was rapper Malibu Hannah.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Brra-ta-ta-ta

[Verse 1]
They call me Megatron, just did a telethon
He got Margiela's on, and I get my jealous on
I fuck him like I miss him, he just came out of prison
Bitches be talkin' shit, but they ain't got a pot to piss in
My name is Nicki M, I'm in a sticky Benz
That mean it's candy apple red, I'm Barbie, this is Ken
That is a Fendi fact, I'm with a hunnid macs
Oh, this is custom made, Donatella sent me that

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely

[Chorus]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
It's better when I'm drinkin'
I tune up when I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
It's better when I'm drinkin'
I tune up when I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-

[Post-Chorus]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Brra-ta-ta-ta

[Verse 2]
They call me Megatron, shorty's a mega con
It ain't about the race either, it's a marathon
I put the squeeze on him, throw up the B's on him
That ass clappin' on the D, Hercules on him
My name is baddie, baddie, I keep it tight for zaddy
He keep it comin', comin', he ain't he even drop the addy
Trunk in the front-front, I need a blunt-blunt
I own my own moscato, bitch, we gettin drunk-drunk

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely

[Chorus]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
It's better when I'm drinkin'
I tune up when I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
It's better when I'm drinkin'
I tune up when I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-

[Post-Chorus]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Brra-ta-ta-ta

[Bridge]
Bite me, bite me, that excite me
He said it's my pussy (Yup, it might be)
If you eatin' it, do it precisely
'Cause I'm a millionaire, this pussy pricey
(Yup, it might be, yup, it might be)
He said it's my pussy (Yup, it might be)
My pussy, my pussy (Yup, it might be)
'Cause I'm a millionaire, this pussy pricey

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely
Feel up, baby, feel on me
Pull up if you're feeling lonely

[Chorus]
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
It's better when I'm drinkin'
I tune up when I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm
Brra-ta-ta-ta
Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin'
Rum, rum when I'm-
