Megan Thee Stallion Gets Emotional While Performing "Cobra"

On Saturday (June 8), a video of Megan Thee Stallion speaking to concertgoers at her Hot Girl Summer Tour stop at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. surfaced on social media. In the clip, which can be seen below, the Houston artist tells everyone in the crowd that she will keep her composure before delivering the lyrics to her 2023 hit single, "Cobra."

"I'ma give you this performance without tearing up," Megan Thee Stallion says before the crowd begins to cheer.

After Megan lets a few lines from "Cobra" play, the three-time Grammy award-winning rapper attempts to calm herself down with a breathing technique and dance moves but ends up breaking down on stage. Amid Megan's emotional moment, the crowd applauds her in hopes of lifting her spirits. When the clip ends, she is still trying to gain her composure.
