Listen to Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Anxiety’ from Gen V, S1 E1 as Marie wakes up from a nightmare

The first three episodes of the new superhero series Gen V premiered on Amazon Prime Video earlier today with typical The Boys‘ style action (it’s a spinoff of that hit series) and with some superb music on their soundtracks.

Music that includes Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Anxiety‘, which was played on Gen V, Season 1, Episode 1, “God U” right at the beginning of the episode as Marie wakes up having had a nightmare about murdering her parents with her super power.

The rap song then continues playing during the now-present day as Marie is at school, and as she is setting up the gym to practice targeting her blood powers.

When did Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Anxiety‘ first come out?

The American rapper’s ‘Anxiety‘ is a song from her second studio album Traumazine, which came out on the 1501 Certified and 300 labels in August, 2022.

It is a track that talks about the rapper’s struggles with anxiety and mental health, as well as references singers like Britney Spears and Whitney Houston with the lines “Jammin’ to Britney, singin’ to Whitney, I just wan’ talk to somebody that get me, yeah“.

After its release, Megan Thee Stallion has said to some extent she feels as though the song was directed at her late mother.

A woman who was also a rapper, and someone who she feels probably deserves an apology for how she treated her when she was alive.

Listen to Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Anxiety‘ from the opening scenes of Gen V in the vizualizer video, and via the rapper’s Traumzine album via Spotify.

The new black comedy/superhero drama series Gen V stars Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Maddie Phillips and Derek Lu.

It is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, with new episodes releasing weekly.
