    Her trademark confidence is now tinged with a newfound self-awareness, as if evolving through her experience of the joys and pitfalls of celebrity. ... Surprisingly, the standout track from the record, “Crying in the Car”, is a diorama of nostalgia, melancholy and faith, counterbalancing Megan’s overall ethos of optimistic self-empowerment. ... For listeners, it makes a strong case for the rapper’s longevity within the increasingly fickle world of music.

    On “Suga,” Megan Thee Stallion is mixing the cold hard steel of hip-hop power, with the teasing romanticism of mod R&B — and it looks great on her.

    Suga might sound like a moodier big sister to Tina Snow or Hot Girl Meg. But as the new songs show, Megan at her most vulnerable is still tough as a tank.

    This project is the high energy expected by a mare balancing sugar and spice just in time for the hotties — Megan's fan club — to warm up to for the summer.

    Just as Fever captured a snapshot of a young artist breaking through to worldwide fame in real time, Suga finds Megan Thee Stallion experiencing the growing pains of success. The songs reflect this in their lyrical content, overall shift in tonality, and even in the small steps they take towards more commercial sounds.

    Suga may not be remembered as a keystone in Megan Thee Stallion’s catalog, but it’s a fine portrait of an artist embracing her full self as her world changes drastically.

    A frustrating project that falls short of its composer’s talent.

    I know Megan wanted to do everything right with this EP, but I feel like this was not her real start in the music industry, Savage is quiteI know Megan wanted to do everything right with this EP, but I feel like this was not her real start in the music industry, Savage is quite possibly the strongest song on the EP, but BT-CH is the most complete song and a perfect and spectacular rap., and the song Ain`t Equal was the perfect start for an album that was going to have an impact on the industry. Most of the songs sound the same to me. They don't make any sense, I hope Megan works so hard and improves more. Expand

The cover and songs don't convey anything in common and only a few tracks sound good. But it doesn't even sound like something like an album to relate.
