Megan Thee Stallion is ready to start anew.

The 29-year-old Houston Hottie is the cover story of the latest issue of L’OFFICIEL and tells the magazine that after her back and forth with Nicki Minaj and dealing with depression she wanted to balance out the emotions on her latest album.

‘Hiss’ was me just getting the things that I had to say off my chest,” Megan said about her scathing diss track. “I’m really not focused on the negativity on my album. I have a lot of different songs on the album because my emotion doesn’t stop at anger. My emotion doesn’t stop at sadness because I did grow and I did start feeling more things. I started feeling really happy. So you have songs on the album that are about the positive times that I’m starting to have. You get a little bit of everything. You get all the emotions in there.”

Though she admits to doing some experimenting as far as the sound of the new album, the “Red Wine” rapper says she didn’t go too far left but fans will be pleasantly surprised.

“This is music I would like if I wasn’t Megan Thee Stallion. … It won’t feel like I went so left. It’ll feel true to me,” Megan said. “You’ll almost be like, ‘I wouldn’t have thought she would’ve rapped over that, but this sounds great.’ ”

The as yet untitled album is scheduled to drop this summer.

Megan Thee Stallion is currently on her Hot Girl Summer tour with special guest GloRilla with dates throughout America before kicking off the European leg of the tour in Glasgow, U.K. on July 4.
