After taking a musical hiatus for nearly a year, Megan Thee Stallion returned with a new single as a lead artist. “Cobra” arrived on November 3.
According to her management company, Megan Thee Stallion has already found success with her latest song. Roc Nation revealed the “Cobra” music video amassed over 2.1 million views in its first 24 hours on the platform.
The Douglas Bernardt-directed visuals apparently secured Megan the record for the biggest YouTube debut for a solo female rapper in 2023. As of press time, the video has racked up 4.3 million total views in three days.
Megan’s Hottie fan base can look forward to more music from the Houston-bred Hip-Hop star. The 28-year-old, self-described Hot Girl Coach teased that additional content from this era is on the way in the near future.
“I’m so happy all the hotties are happy! #COBRA is the introduction of ACT ONE and y’all are already so excited… I just can’t wait until y’all see everything,” Megan tweeted. In addition, she shared, “Also I have some images that were too spicy to be on IG and Twitter so ima sell them in a CD booklet.😛.”
