Megan Thee Stallion’s cover art for new album Roasted By Fans

Megan Thee Stallion has received mixed reviews over the cover art choice for her new album, Megan, on social media. She officially announced the project on Sunday night, after months of teasing plans for it. In a social media post, she wrote: “SURPRISE HOTTIESSSS!!!! My new album ‘MEGAN’ comes out on JUNE 28 PRE-SAVE NOW!”

In the comments on the post on X (formerly Twitter), fans were excited but upset about the album cover. It shows Megan breaking out of a cocoon with an “M” in the background. “We’re going to buy and stream, but the album art… is kind of confusing, it looks like you’re in a testicle,” one fan admitted. Another described Megan as a “genuinely charming, extraordinarily talented artist who makes some of the most mind-boggling creative choices I’ve ever seen.” Another wrote: “Whoever made this cover should be blacklisted from the graphic design community for life.”

Megan first announced the new album during a performance in Atlanta Hot girls summer tour on Sunday evening. It will be released later this month, on June 28. She discussed what fans can expect from the project during an interview with L’OFFICIEL, last week. “I don’t want to say that I tap into other genres. I just use different sounds. But it’s still very Megan Thee Stallion. It won’t feel like I went so left. It will be true for me,” she told the outlet. “You’d almost say, ‘I didn’t think she would have commented on that, but this sounds great.'”
