Megan — full name Megan Pete — is up for one of the most coveted awards of the night: Record of the Year for her remix of “Savage.” This time last year the song was on the verge of exploding thanks to the viral video dance challenge that went along with the lyrics. As everyone including celebrities were forced into home quarantines due to the March 2020 COVID-19 outbreak, folks had a lot of time on their hands to show off how they could be the most “Classy, bougie, ratchet” to the song via their Instagram and TikTok videos. Even Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin gave it their best shot while under lockdown!
After “Savage” became one of the biggest hits of the year, she teamed up with Cardi in August for another one of 2020’s biggest smashes with their duet “WAP.” Meg then released her first studio album Good News on November 20, 2020, along with the first single “Body.” Megan was one of 22 artists performing at the 2021 Grammys live from the Los Angeles Convention Center.
