Currently challenging for the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 next week, Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé have a total hit on their hands with the “Savage” remix. The track was already booming before it got picked up by Queen Bey, going viral on social media with a dance challenge. Now, it’s looking set to become Megan’s first-ever #1 record and she has Beyoncé to thank.
On the song, the legendary singer shows her own savage side, rapping about her ass with a couple of select bars.
“I’m a boss, I’m a leader, I pull up in my two-seater/And my mama was a savage, n***a, got this shit from Tina,” she spits on the remix. Earlier on, she bragged about her backside, making this line pretty clearly about the good genes that run in her family.
Apparently, Tina Knowles-Lawson didn’t get the memo because she thinks it’s about her philanthropy and “cool mom” status, according to her latest interview with CBS News.

Beyoncé’s mother was on air to speak about what she and her daughter have been doing during the COVID-19 crisis, also reacting to the song’s lyrics. When asked if she believes that the “Savage” line is about her philanthropy, she answered in the affirmative.
“As far as the ‘Savage’ is concerned, you know, it’s funny because people started texting me and calling me a savage. I wasn’t sure what it meant,” she admitted. She continues by saying that she used to pick up Bey from school in a convertible and that people thought she was a “cool mom,” which makes her draw a parallel to the “Savage” lyrics. Somehow, that makes sense. However, the majority of Bey’s verse is about ass so… idk.
Please, nobody tell her what it’s actually about…
