The Line of Best Fit

Her trademark confidence is now tinged with a newfound self-awareness, as if evolving through her experience of the joys and pitfalls of celebrity.

Rolling Stone

On Suga she sounds warm and vulnerable, unsure how to carry on without her mama to guide her, but determined to do her proud.

Consequence of Sound

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.


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.


The relatively short project from the Houston rapper reasserts her absolute domination on the mic and takes her to new melodic spaces to mixed effect.

The Needle Drop

Megan's foray into autotuned trap balladry on Suga's last few tracks is  ultimately the EP's downfall.

Given the problems with the label, I don't know if we can say that Suga is a sacrificed project, but in any case I'm sure it's terribly unfinished.

Without going into the details of the internal Megan/label war, Suga was kind of abandoned abruptly, whereas if we only look at it musically there was much better to do. Like the first single B.I.T.C.H, Suga takes a new musical direction by proposing something smoother, much less aggressive, more R&B, which doesn't really displease me. ... read more
I'd be lying if I said Megan Thee Stallion is on peak form from start to finish on 'SUGA' but the final project as a whole is just 24 minutes of pure confidence and fun. Sure, it definitely could have been a lot more impressive with a bit more time and love but this is the EP that came out at the end of the day, and for what it is, it's certainly enjoyable.

Even though it has a stronger ‘banger to snoozer’ ratio, “SUGA” isn’t a fulfilling EP, and doesn’t present any new ideas that show musical progress from Megan. Don’t know if it’s her fault or her label’s, but somebody’s at fault here.

Color: Black
FAV TRACKS: Ain’t Equal, Savage, Rich, Captain Hook, Hit My Phone
LEAST FAV: Stop Playing, B.I.T.C.H., Crying in the Car
Not a fan of Megan, but this is a total 180 except for the first 3 tracks, as hard or harder than Fever, the rest is very soft. Nothing touches Tina Snow still
I enjoyed Fever for its funny bars and Megan’s flows and while this EP has those here and there, it’s very average for the most part.
