Songfacts®:

  • "Don't Stop" is an explicit song where Megan Thee Stallion raps about what she gets up to in the bedroom. The topic of sex is one that the Texan frequently indulges in, most famously in her dirty talk collaboration with Cardi B, "WAP."
  • Young Thug joins Megan on the track for their first collaboration together. His verse is full of boasts about his sexual prowess.
  • Atlanta producer Buddah Bless supplies the drum-heavy trap beat. His other productions include The Jackboys' "Out West," which is another song where Young Thug flexes about his bedroom activities.
  • Colin Tilley filmed the video, which sees Megan and Young Thug in a fantastical world with several surreal references, including Alice In Wonderland and Edward Scissorhands. The same director was also behind Megan and Cardi'B's "WAP" visual.
  • Megan performed this song and "Savage" when she was the musical guest on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live October 3, 2020.
  • The Good News album pays homage to various rap legends through several samples and interpolations. Here, Megan alludes to Luke's 1992 track "I Wanna Rock" with the way she pronounces "don't stop" on the hook.
