According to teenvogue.com, “The 28-year-old, whose name is Megan Pete, opened up in the song about dealing with multiple obstacles, including the deaths of both her parents and suicidal thoughts.“At night, I’m sittin’ in a dark room thinkin’/ Probably why I always end up drinkin’/ Yes, I’m very depressed/ How can somebody so blessed wanna slit they wrist?” Megan raps.The lyrics continue: “Never thought a bitch like me would ever hit rock bottom/ Man, I miss my parents, way too anxious, always cancel my plans.” The title of this vulnerable track “Cobra” signifies the animals’ courage and self-reliance. Furthermore, intertwining with her healing and renewal journey that she’s explained in social media posts regarding the track.

Despite the guitar riffs and solos that begin the intimate track, fans and critics weren’t prepared for the revelations that Thee Stallion confirmed in her track. Not only has she been struggling with her mental health, she further exposes her ex Pardi for cheating. She raps, “Pulled up, caught him cheatin’, gettin’ his d**k sucked in the same spot I’m sleepin’/ Lord, give me a break, I don’t know how much more of this shit I can take,” the lyrics continued. Fans immediately took to the defense and support of our beloved artists and have pushed the importance of protecting Black women in all spaces. After everything that she’s endured within the past few years, her strength is only admirable. We send Megan all of our love and support.

Hi! I can eat an entire jar of pickles in one setting and I LOVE to binge watch shows on Netflix. One of the most important quotes to me:
