Zendaya Had The Perfect Reaction To Megan Rapping Her Name At The Oscars
She got so hype.
The 2022 Oscars were full of many surprising moments, but one of the most exciting surprises came in the middle of one of the biggest songs of the night. Megan Thee Stallion crashed the Encanto cast’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” performance with a brand-new verse crafted especially for Oscars night. Of course, the new rhymes included tons of references to movies’ biggest night, and a particularly fun shoutout to Zendaya. Naturally, Zendaya had the perfect reaction to Megan Thee Stallion’s 2022 Oscars rap, and it was such a hype moment.
Megan’s surprise verse came as a totally unexpected treat for Oscars viewers. Of course, everyone got to know “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” by heart ever since the Encanto breakout dominated the music charts for weeks on end in early 2022, so it only made sense for the movie’s cast to shake things up for the song’s live performance debut at the Oscars. The performance concluded with Becky G and Luis Fonsi joining the cast on stage, but the big moment came earlier when Megan popped up in the audience to deliver a surprise verse.
It all started as a live version of the animated film’s hit song, and then it took a hot girl twist.
One of the highlights of the moment was a sweet interaction between Megan and Zendaya. In her verse, Megan rapped, “Magic everywhere. Stars everywhere. I need to see Oscars, Zendaya over there.” It was perfectly timed, as Megan walked right by Zendaya at the moment, prompting the movie star to geek out over the mention.
The super-supportive moment shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to fans, given that Zendaya and Megan have forged an adorable friendship through the years. The duo rang in 2020 together with some New Year’s Eve selfies, and they’ve both hyped up each other’s projects publicly, with Zendaya living for Megan’s collab with Beyoncé “Savage” and Megan praising Z’s performance in Euphoria.
Despite Zendaya’s clear stamp of approval (and how well the verse fit in with the new version of the song), it’s unclear if an official version of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, Becky G, and Luis Fonsi will hit music streaming services. Hopefully, the hotties will be able to play Megan’s new verse on Spotify soon enough, though.
