Megan Thee Stallion gets to play a brilliant detective in Megan Thee Stallion P.I. In Hottieween, her new web series in collaboration with YouTube Music that also stars fellow rapper Dave East. Investigating an alleyway slaying, Megan gets to put on her thinking cap and work to solve the whodunnit case.
It takes a couple of interesting turns and ends with a cliffhanger that all but guarantees her character is really not going to enjoy Hot Girl Summer next year. Or anything that involves going outside in general.
The clip starts like a slasher flick. A woman gets confronted in the alley by a group of monstrous half-human beasts and flees into the night. Later, she's found dead, and it's up to Megan Thee Stallion (as a private investigator) to take the case. With the help of her sidekick, a very Dr. Watson-esque Janine (played by social media comedian Jay Cole), she conducts her investigation, happening to come across Archimedes (East) who attempts to woo Megan in the middle of a nightclub.
Later, she links up with him to see what he knows about the slaying, only to put two and two together and realize that he has something to do with it (she's much too late for viewers who can recognize the sound of his voice from an earlier police interview). Right when she has her "Aha!" moment, East appears behind her and sinks his vampire-like teeth into her neck for either the biggest hickey of all time or the official welcome letter into the vampiric community.
It ends abruptly after that, a cliffhanger for the next installment. Does the fate of Megan Thee Stallion, P.I., mean that Megan Thee Stallion, music artist, will begin to make songs about hating garlic and comparing breakups to having a silver stake driven through the heart? So much for Hot Girl Summer. It'll be more like Cool Vampire Coffin.
Watch Megan investigate a grisly crime in her first installment of Hottieween above.
