Megan Thee Stallion & Renee Rapp ‘Not My Fault’: Stream It – Billboard
Written by GRB on 15/12/2023
On Friday (Dec. 15), the pop singer and rap icon joined forces to release “Not My Fault,” their hotly anticipated new collaboration off the soundtrack of the forthcoming Mean Girls remake. Sampling an audio clip from the original 2004 film — in which Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) yells at her best friend Janis (Lizzy Caplan) that “it’s not my fault that you’re, like, in love with me or something” — Reneé and Megan flex their “hot girl” status throughout this slick dance track.
Rapp kicks things off with a “steal your girl” approach to the song, insisting, “It’s not my fault/ You came with her but she might leave with me.” As the singer ratchets up the sexual tension (she casually asks “can a gay girl get an amen?” in the song’s second verse), Megan jumps in to boast her accolades. “B—h so bad, dudes thought I was A.I., ballin’ like eight/ Stick to the motherf—in’ money like a stapler, stack like Jenga,” she spits in her verse. “It’s funny how the mean girl open all the doors/ I been told y’all, I’m the Black Regina George.”
“Not My Fault” was first announced by Megan earlier this week via a post on Rapp’s Instagram account. In a teaser clip, the “Cobra” rapper announced that she and the “Snow Angel” singer had “a new song coming out for Mean Girls.” Rapp then subsequently posted the cover art for the new single, showing the pair baring it all in a room filled with plastic mannequins. “meg told me to put my a– out so I put my a– out,” Rapp wrote about the art on X.
Rapp stars in the Mean Girls reboot as the queen bee of North Shore High School Regina George, reprising her role from the Broadway musical on which the film is partially based. The film arrives in theaters on Jan. 12.
