Megan Thee Stallion’s latest solo track, “Cobra,” delves into a realm often explored in hip-hop: mental health. Her candid portrayal of her emotional struggles in the song is both brave and long overdue.
Megan Thee Stallion isn’t new to confronting challenging subjects. In her previous battles, she stood strong in her fight for artistic independence, making “Cobra” her first independently released song since leaving her longtime label after a bitter legal dispute.
The title itself holds a message of courage and renewal. As she explained on social media, “Cobra” symbolizes standing tall and fierce in the face of adversity, a lesson we can all take to heart. The vulnerable process of cobras shedding their skins mirrors our own ability to let go of the past and focus on self-improvement.
