The Chick Behind The Mic

Written By Ashley Pierce



We’ve all see an increase in female positivity all over the world. In all 
industries women are screaming, “The future is female”. The music industry is no 
different. Female artists are proving themselves to be bold and demanding respect 
from everyone around them. Proving that a woman can love her body, have sex 
appeal and handle her business all on her own. 
Megan Thee Stallion, an upcoming rapper from Houston, TX is no stranger to 
this with lyrics like “Come in the room and I'm giving commands. I am the captain 
and he the lieutenant” in her song Big Ole Freak. Megan is following in her mother’s 
footsteps as a female rapper. Unfortunately, her mother Holly Thomas, Holly-Wood 
being her rap name has recently passed away. Megan has made it known that her 
performances will not stop because “Holly would not want me to stop” she tweets 
out to her fans. She released an EP in June 2018 called Tina Snow where you can 
find a few of her most popular songs like Big Ole Freak, Freak Nasty and Make A Bag 
feat. Moneybagg Yo. I suspect this is only the beginning for Megan Thee Stallion. 
Some women in the music industry are on the rise due to the benefits of 
social media. We all know that we are in a day and time where social media can give 
anyone a platform to display something they are passionate about and develop 
supporters and a following. 
Artist like Doja Cat have taken full advantage of the power of social media by 
making what she calls “meme music” with her song “Moo”. Doja explains that she 
created this song as a joke with her fans on Instagram live. She says she wanted to 
make something that allowed everyone to have a sort of break. “The music industry 
is very uptight right now and people need humor,” she explains. Doja cat is from Los 
Angeles California and has been making music for a couple years now. Back in 2014 
Doja released an EP called Purrr! with her noted song “So High”. It seems that it 
wasn’t until recently that others have realized Doja Cat actually has a nice voice and 
plenty of other great songs like, Go To Town and Tia Tamera feat Rico Nasty. 
I think it is safe to say that women will continue to speak out on all platforms 
loudly and freely no matter big or small. It is quite invigorating for others to see 
women of all shapes and sizes, being sexy and positive especially in a predominately 
male industry. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat have all of their music 
streaming on all platforms for downloading.
