Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa both gave us countless amazing collaborations on their own, and it was just a matter of time before they worked on one together. Their new single “Sweetest Pie” lives up to its name, and it comes with a bewitching music video.
The Dave Meyers-directed video draws inspiration from the tale of Hansel and Gretel, and Stallion came up with the concept for this visual herself. It’s stylish and gory at the same time, and it shows the two singers luring men into their forest hideaway, where they face dire consequences.
Stallion is no stranger to A-list collaborations, and joining forces with Lipa made total sense for her. She wants to be more organic with her collaborations in the future, but teaming up with the British hitmaker was a no-brainer after hearing how amazing the mashups of their music sounded.
“I felt like [‘Sweetest Pie’] was right because it felt right for both of us … I want us to both really thrive on it and really shine. So when I heard it, I was like, ‘Okay, this is my type of beat, my 808, my drums. But I feel like it’s a good vibe for her,’” Stallion told Zane Lowe.
“Sweetest Pie” will be featured on Stallion’s upcoming second studio album, but she’s yet to share any details about this record.
