Shortly after Halloween, Megan Thee Stallion dropped a video and new single, Cobra, addressing her mental health seemingly since Tory’s sentencing. Rumors of Megan’s relationship with Pardison Fontaine, ghostwriter and music artist, surfaced months before the single dropped which made listeners eager to hear her side of the story. Megan also mentioned in previous interviews leading up to her single dropping that she is currently self-funding amidst her recent split from 1501 Entertainment.
After studying the lyrics closely, Megan Thee Stallion used this opportunity to unlock topics in her life that are quite traumatizing and public embarrassment that she’s witnessed in the past year alone while using metaphoric Cobra aesthetic through the visuals.
2023 has been an explosive year with the flooding stories of women in entertainment expressing the violence they’ve experienced during their most successful years in Hollywood.

The timeline of events that have occurred concerning the Congo, Sudan, Eritrea, Palestine and many other countries can’t be measured in a single news article or documentary. Congo, Sudan and Eritrea have been experiencing wars for over 2 decades with constant conflict. The West which includes the UK, French, Italy, Spain, Portugal, as well as the Jewish community of Israel, have continued their colonial efforts existing from the transatlantic slave trade throughout various parts of Africa. For many territories in Africa, slavery and genocide has been a consistent devastation as countries fight for independence. One thing Congo, Sudan, Eritrea and Palestine have in common is the fight for land. The West feels aggressively entitled to land masses for various reasons of resources to the extent that the West builds military personnel in occupied countries to monitor their resources against the native Africans. Another factor all four countries have in common is their connection to the concept of holy land or ancestral land. The effects of slavery and genocide cause displacement amongst many natives but the severity in which the West inflicts upon native people should be named as pure evil. Lastly, there is a religious factor that plays a role in how people view land rights and superiority.
