It comes after Megan recently won her first Grammy Award during the 2021 pre-ceremony, winning Best Rap Performance for Beyoncé’s remix of Savage.
The Houston girls made history with the win, as they became the first women to take home an award in that category.
Their collab also won Best Rap Song and was nominated for Record of the Year, while Megan won Best New Artist.
Megan thanked her haters in a behind-the-scenes video her Hottie World YouTube vlog: ‘I feel like I gotta thank the people that gave me a hard time. I don’t know if I would’ve went as hard.
‘I probably definitely would’ve went hard, but just the fact that somebody telling me, “No, you can’t,” made me be like, “B****, yes I can! Watch me, ho!”‘
