Great Body of work: Rapper Megan Thee Stallion has unveiled a racy new video to accompany her body positive anthem Body

Megan debuted the Colin Tilley-directed video for Body on YouTube Original’s weekly series Released, with the star sharing that she was celebrating all body types in the track.

‘The category is body/Look at the way it’s sitting,’ she raps. ‘That ratio so out of control, that waist, that a*s, them t***ies/If I were me and I woulda seen myself/I would have bought me a drink, took me home.’

Addressing the allegations in Shots Fired, she raps: ‘Imagine n***as lyin’ about shootin’ a real b**ch (Huh) / Just to save face for rapper n***as you chill with.

‘Imagine me givin’ a f**k it was your f–kin’ birthday / You in your feelings, I just thought it was another Thursday.’

Later in the fiery track, she raps: ‘You shot a 5’10″ bitch, with a .22 / Talkin’ ’bout bones and tendons like them bullets weren’t pellets.

‘A p***y n***a with a p***y gun in his feelings / OK, he in the backseat and he keep callin’ me a b**ch (He a b**ch) / We all know this s**t, I coulda came back with (Lil’ ass n***a).’ 

Tory’s attorney Shawn Holley entered a plea of not guilty for the crime on Wednesday at Los Angeles County court, according to TMZ.

He faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison if convicted of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

Tory – who posted $190,000 bond – will likely be in court for his next hearing scheduled for January 20, but Megan has a protective order against him. 

Megan recently claimed that she was ‘offered’ money to stay quiet about the alleged shooting in July.

Earlier this week, the Hot Girl Summer hitmaker detailed the events surrounding the night where she was shot twice in the foot after leaving a pool party in the Hollywood Hills.

She told GQ that being shot and then having to defend her experiences publicly online was ‘the worst experience of [her] life.’

His lawyers responded to TMZ about the buy-out claims and said he ‘has never offered money to any witness for their silence or for any other reason. Any reports to the contrary are false.’

Celebration: 'The category is body/Look at the way it’s sitting,' she raps. 'That ratio so out of control, that waist, that a*s, them t***ies/If I were me and I woulda seen myself/I would have bought me a drink, took me home'

Megan claimed that she was simply trying to go home when she got in the car with Tory Lanez, a move she was hesitant to even make as an argument was brewing and her phone had died.

When Megan attempted to get out of the vehicle, Lanez allegedly shot at her feet and wounded her twice.

‘Like, I never put my hands on nobody,’ she said while recalling the scenario in disbelief. ‘I barely even said anything to the man who shot me when I was walking away. We were literally like five minutes away from the house.’

Lanez reportedly begged Megan and her friend in the car not to say anything and even ‘offered’ money for them to stay quiet. 

‘[At this point] I’m really scared,’ Megan said, ‘because this is like right in the middle of all the protesting. Police are just killing everybody for no reason, and I’m thinking, ‘I can’t believe you even think I want to take some money. Like, you just shot me.’

With helicopters surrounding the area and a slew of police presence, Megan told officers at the time ‘I got cut’.

While she received an outpouring of support, Megan faced a group of detractors over the incident and she later named Lanez as the person who shot her in the foot, which spiralled into a he-said/she-said war online.

After back and forth she tweeted: ‘Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own.

‘It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.’

Lanez was arrested for a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, and was later charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

Megan will next perform a brand new track and compete for five trophies – including New Artist of the Year – at the 48th Annual American Music Awards, which air this Sunday on ABC.

She is also a part-time student pursuing a degree in health administration at Texas Southern University, and she eventually wants to open an assisted-living facility.
