Dua Lipa is currently on tour (see our pics and review of the NYC show), and next week she has a run of shows that will be opened by Megan Thee Stallion. Ahead of that, the two teamed up for a new song, "Sweetest Pie." It finds both artists doing what they do best, and it sounds like an instant hit. According to a press release, it serves as the first teaser for Megan's next album, so stay tuned for more on that. Listen and watch the Dave Meyers-directed video below.

Megan spoke to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about the collaboration:

I be seeing everybody making mashups of me and Dua songs and I'm like, "No, this sounds too good. We have to make a song." So when I hit her up about it, I was like, "Dua, I really want us to do a song, but I got to find that right beat. It has to be perfect." So I didn't just send her no any track. I waited till I had the perfect one and I feel like we both came to a mutual agreement that it was greatness. And now we got Sweetest Pie.

[...] Dua is so chill. When I first saw her on Instagram, I was like, oh my gosh, I don't know what it's given. She really look kind of mean. I don't know. I didn't know how she was going to be. But when I met her, I was like, "Love, you might be my friend." She is so cool. She's so chill. She just has a really calming spirit, and she's so sweet. And anything that she really didn't like, it was such an easy tweak or an easy fix. I feel like we pretty much liked everything, but anything ... she wasn't a diva. You know what I'm saying? It was just super easy the whole time, and I really liked that about her. Because she could be a diva, but she is just so humble. We are all divas in our own right. But what I'm saying is she was just very sweet. She was very kind. And I feel like right now, everybody is not like that. So shout out to a kind person in the industry because you don't meet a lot of them.
