Pardi The Philanderer? Megan Thee Stallion Alludes To Ex’s Infidelity In New ‘Cobra’ Music Video
The Houston hottie also revealed she was severely depressed.
“WAP” rapper Megan Thee Stallion talks about mental health and alludes to her ex-boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine being a cheater in her new music video, “Cobra,” according to a Nov. 3 report by the Daily Mail.
Megan, 33, unveiled her latest single, “Cobra,” and its accompanying music video in which she metaphorically “sheds her skin” to represent her personal transformation, much like a snake’s molt. In the song, Megan alludes to Pardi being unfaithful without explicitly naming him.
She raps about catching her ex-partner in compromising situations with the lyrics, “Pulled up, caught him cheating, getting his d*** sucked in the same spot I’m sleeping. Lord, give me a break, I don’t know how much more of this s*** I can take.”
The exact timeline of Megan’s decision to end her two-year relationship with music producer Pardi, also 33, is unclear, but it’s believed she ended it in December 2022. Worth noting: The Houston native’s collaboration with Pardi on the 2020 track “Savage Remix” earned him his sole Grammy award.
In “Cobra,” the femcee delves into her mental health battles, candidly revealing a dark period in her life in which she felt close to death and deep in emotional turmoil. She exposes her struggles, rapping lines such as “Every night I cried, I almost died / And nobody close tried to stop me.”
Her lyrics offer a glimpse into the pain and depression she endured during her lowest moments.
The music video, spanning three minutes, begins with Megan’s reflection on self-renewal, likening it to a snake shedding its skin. Throughout the video she embraces a bold and revealing style that emphasizes her 5 foot 10 figure.
While Megan has faced criticism for her daring outfits, she refuses to conform to societal expectations.
Addressing the controversy she and Cardi B faced for their provocative hit “WAP,” Megan expressed her bewilderment at the backlash, and humorously attributed it to Republicans’ frustration during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
When the duo performed “WAP” at the Grammys, it sparked more than a thousand complaints to the Federal Communications Commission. Many viewers found the performance offensive and akin to pornography. Megan was unapologetic and highlighted the positive aspects of the uproar, such as increased streams of the song.
