Songfacts®:

  • When "licious" is added at the end of a word, it often has sexual connotations. Here, with her characteristic bravado, Megan Thee Stallion boasts she is "pressurelicious." The Texan rapper means she's unfazed by a man's poison, as she knows how to give him what he wants between the sheets.
  • Future joins Megan on the seductive track. The pair trade braggadocios bars about their wealth, shared toxicity, and bedroom shenanigans. It is the first time the two hip-hop A-listers have appeared on a track together.
  • Hitkidd supplied the eerie, intense beat. The Memphis producer also teamed up with Megan for her Something for Thee Hottie tracks "Warning," "Opposite Day," and "God's Favorite." When "Pressurelicious" entered the Hot 100, it joined another of his productions on the chart - GloRilla's "FNF (Let's Go.)."
  • Megan originally recorded her rhymes over HitKidd's solo, before deciding it needed Future's ratchet rhyming. "I feel like, being a woman in the industry, reaching out to a man trying to get a feature is always going to be a task," she told the radio station Power 106 Los Angeles. "You never know what to expect."

    When Megan contacted the Atlanta rapper's representatives, they told her he'd do it for $250,000. Future was in Miami at the time and she told her manager to pay him 250K in cash in a backpack straight away.

    Before he left Miami, Future sent Megan a fully rapped seven-minute version of "Pressurelicious." She broke it down for the version she recorded for Traumazine.
