You gotta give it to artists who make infidelity sound fun and festive. Of course, there are guilty pillow-talk and pillow-thought classics like Shirley Murdock’s “As We Lay” and unabashed two-timer jams like Naughty By Nature’s  “O.P.P.” Now Phony Ppl and Megan Thee Stallion have contributed to the cheating canon with their disco-inflected jam, “Fkn Around.”

For his part, Elbee Thrie, Phony Ppl’s lead vocalist, is more flirtatious than flat-out philandering, trading glances in the club with a woman who is obviously taken but still down for an affair. Megan, on the other hand, is clear about her intentions: she might be boo’ed up, but she is also young, wild, and free.  Their combination makes for a song that is as sweet as it is salacious. though I can’t imagine how Moneybagg Yo is gonna react to it.
