Houston’s rap sensation, Megan Thee Stallion, has joined forces with actor/singer Reneé Rapp for a pulsating new track titled ‘Not My Fault,’ a collaboration set to feature in the highly-anticipated Mean Girls movie musical. Rapp, taking on the role of Regina George, originally played the character in the Broadway adaptation of the 2004 cult classic.
The song kicks off with a clever nod to the original Mean Girls film, sampling a memorable line from Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan): “You know what? It’s not my fault that you’re, like, in love with me or something.” From there, Rapp takes the reins, crooning about the complications of attraction: “It’s not my fault/ You came with her but she might leave with me/ It’s not my fault/ You’ve gotta pay for what I get for free/ It’s not my fault/ You’re like, you’re like, you’re like in love with me/ It’s not my fault you’re like in love with me/ You’re like in love with me.”
Megan Thee Stallion injects her signature energy into the track, playfully asking, “I mean, who wouldn’t wanna be in love with me?” The upbeat dance number unfolds into a rap segment where she boasts about being “a mood,” “a stallion,” and a “bitch so bad dudes thought I was AI.” The lyricism takes a humorous turn as she declares, “It’s funny how the mean girl opens all the doors/ But I been told y’all, I’m the Black Regina George.”
The Mean Girls movie musical, directed by Arturo Perez Jr. and Samantha Jayne, is slated for release in cinemas on January 12, 2024. The revamped musical version is penned by Tina Fey, who reprises her role as Ms. Norbury from the original film. The star-studded cast includes Angourie Rice, Auliʻi Cravalho, Jaquel Spivey, Bebe Wood, Avantika Vandanapu, Jenna Fischer, Jon Hamm, Busy Philipps, and Tim Meadows, who returns as Principal Duvall.
