Megan Thee Stallion Says She Paid Future $250,000 For "Pressurelicious" Feature
Ahead of her studio album, Traumazine, Megan Thee Stallion dropped "Pressurelicious" featuring Future. The three-minute record wasted no time climbing the charts, and now Megan is letting everyone know how the collaboration came to be.
During a sit-down interview with the L.A. Leakers, the H-Town hottie stated that she had already completed the song herself. "It's a really crazy story... I recorded it one way, and I was like, 'You know what? This would really sound hard if Future was on it.'" Following her revelation, she asked her team to figure out the rapper's feature price.
"Being a woman in the industry," she stated, "reaching out to a man trying to get a feature is always going to be a task. You don't know what to expect." Upon asking, it was revealed that he charged $250,000. "I was like, 'Okay bet... somebody go pull $250,000 out the bank and go drop it off to Future," she laughed and said.

To her surprise, though, the father of seven provided more than just one verse. "He rapped over the whole beat," the 27-year-old added, "He gave me the whole Future experience."
Because of this, Megan had to do some rearranging. "Then when I got his verses... I was like, 'I've got to write some new verses because I've got to make this make sense.'"
