MEGAN THEE STALLION Credits Beyoncé For Advising Her To Launch A Tequila Brand 🥃

The Making Of a MOGUL? Megan Thee Stallion Wants to Quench Your Thirst…

Having The Carters as mentors is a flex, especially when they’re giving out advice about how to become a mogul.

Megan Thee Stallion revealed on Club Shay Shay that it was under the guidance of Beyonce that she decided to venture into spirits and launch her own tequila brand.

“Beyoncé is actually the person that inspired me to get my own tequila,” explained the “BOA” rapper. “Because I used to be the cognac queen. I still am the cognac  queen. But as much as I used to enjoy cognac, and I’ve promoted a lot of people’s liquor brands, she was like, ‘The next time I see you, you better have your own. You need to have your own alcohol.’”

Of the decision, Megan revealed, “When I was in the situation with [1501] and I wanted to get out of it, [Bey and JAY-Z] told me you need to do this on your own. Like, ‘You already know what it is. You already have all the tools. All the legal sh**t you are going through, I know you are learning something. So you should figure out how to get out here and be your own boss.’”

“I create the things that I want to see, I don’t create things for other people to like them,” she said during the announcement per Essence. “I create the music I want to hear, I go and do my own thing and stay true to me. As long as you keep doing things that are true to you and feel good to you, you’ll get the audience you want to attract. You don’t want to be a walking commercial. You should do things that make you feel good […] you’ll create more moments that way.”

The following month, she allowed fans to preview the liquor during the Hot Girl Summer Tour before its formal launch.

A release date has yet to be confirmed.
