Megan Thee Stallion – BOA | Lyrics Meaning and Song Review

Megan Thee Stallion brings us the third single from her upcoming third studio album. Titled “BOA,” the visuals take inspiration from the popular manga character ‘Pirate Empress-Boa Hancock’ from the anime series ‘One Piece.’

In “BOA,” Megan Thee Stallion raps about her dominance in the rap industry. Some parts of the song might be directly referring to Nicki Minaj–who is often crowned as the Queen of hip-hop. Nicki has been in the game for a long time, much longer than the current competition such as Megan Thee Stallion or Cardi B. And as such, Nicki’s popularity has taken a turn for the worse. Megan wonders when she is ‘clocking out’ of the hip hop game and she assumes her rightful place as the new Queen.

The music video for “BOA” is filled with different pop culture references. The beginning of the video takes inspiration from the movie ‘Jumanji’ where three friends get sucked into a video game. However, this also signifies all the players entering the hip-hop game. The subtext in the game disc reveals ‘if you die in the game, you die in real life.’

Megan Thee Stallion “BOA” Lyrics Review and Song Meaning

Throughout the song, Megan Thee Stallion takes shots at her competition, as she claims to be better in hip-hop, better looking, fiercer, hotter, and even more financially sound.

They bought Birkins, I bought stock (I bought stock)

Birkenstock is a sandal brand. However, when you take the word apart, you can make a clever statement. Birkins is an ultra-luxury bag collection by Hermès. An average Birkin bag costs around $10,000 while some rare items retail over $100,000. So, it can be implied that owning a Birkin bag is a definitive label of luxury and some people do buy these bags as an investment. Megan says while her opposition bought these bags, she bought stocks or equity of companies–most likely, stock of Birkin’s company. So, whenever her opposition buys Birkins, they are actually making Megan richer through stock value appreciation.

How do you hate me if I’m on your mind?

If you constantly hate someone, you are letting them live rent-free in your head. This is one of the biggest wastes of your head and time you can do. And the more you hate them, the more you destroy your inner peace. Your hate is not going to do a thing to them. You just end up messing up your energy, happiness, and the people around you.

B*tch, your time up, why is you not clockin’ out?

The above lyrics are most likely a reference to Nicki Minaj as she is the OG rapper of all these popular female rappers. She crawled for artists like Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B to run. However, the nature of the beast is that the next hot one to come into the game wants the old one out. There is no room for two Queens in the game.
