The “Savage” remix gave Meg her first No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart, and returned to the top spot on the Hot Rap Songs tally. The track also climbed four slots to top the Digital Song Sales chart. The single marks a special achievement for Beyonce who joins Mariah Carey as the only two artists to earn No. 1’s in the 2000s, the 2010, and 2020s.

In addition to making chart history, the “Savage” remix was a collective effort between Megan and Beyonce to help their hometown of Houston during the COVID-19 pandemic. The song has reportedly raised more than $500,000 for charity.

The Michael Jackson-inspired teaser, released on Thursday (May 14), went viral almost immediately, wracking up more than 1 million views on Taylor's Instagram and millions of views across Twitter.

In the video clip, Taylor pays homage to the King of Pop’s “Smooth Criminal” (and possible nods to Janet's “Alright” music video) with a colorful spin. “No games this time around,” the Harlem native wrote on Instagram.

Taylor's new project is a followup to her 2018 debut studio album, K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy).  In an Instagram Live interview with Red Bull promoting her documentary, Assembly Required: Teyana Taylor’s House of Petunia, Taylor announced that The Album is officially done.

“Y’all gonna be so happy,” she said last month. “This album is definitely more of a vibe. I don’t really do fast songs like that. There are some head-boppers. It’s not super-fast. You can dance and you can cry and you can ride.”

The Album is scheduled to debut next month.

Check out the “Bare Wit Me” teaser below.
