    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.

    All in all Suga is a very promising work, an enjoyable snapshot of a rapper becoming a bona fide star.

    Suga is a solid and cohesive EP that showcases Megan Thee Stallion’s unfettered appetite for destruction; she obliterates any beat she comes into contact with without batting an eyelash. Although the majority of the project is an exhilarating listen, its own ambitions prove to be its biggest challenge.

    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.

    Ain't Equal / Savage / Captain Hook re stand out tracks.

    Megan does experiment with some different sounds & as much as I love when artists experiment with different sounds … this is a very lukewarm attempt.

    These tracks aren’t horrible - I think there’s potential here both in the R&B and Melodic rap attempts, and I will always applaud someone who tries to expand their sound.- But these feel unpolished, unfinished, and to put it bluntly uninteresting.

    Meg has thus far stayed ahead of the crowd b/c she stood out. Everyone is doing melodic/singing things, and her attempt here doesn’t add anything to that scene. So this puts her right in the middle of the crowd.

    5/10

She is at her most vulnerable with songs like "Crying in the Car" but also reaches a triumphant high with her hit "Savage" and "Ain't Equal." Expand
