Megan Thee Stallion did her thing last night!
The WAP singer performed in her first virtual concert on Saturday night since the Tory Lanez shooting incident, and she was on point throughout with a great set list and an important social message behind her work, as well.

The 25-year-old Houston native made things political with her inspired, powerful performance, at one point calling attention to police brutality and the extra-judicial killings of Black people in the United States with a purposeful pause mid-way through. According to Pitchfork, about halfway through her set, the strong female performer stopped everything, the lights cut out, and the words “This S**t Is Exhausting” popped up on the screen behind her.
The screen then flashed through the names of a number of Black people who have died unnecessarily at the hands of police officers and white vigilantes throughout the recent years — a powerful reminder as to what it is Megan is so valiantly fighting for in this world.
As you can see (below), the entire thing caused near silence for several minutes, and it made for one of the most powerful and impactful things we’ve seen out of a virtual concert all throughout this pandemic:
