If 2016 was the year of realizing things, 2019 is the year of hot girl summer. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Megan Thee Stallion has coined the term “hot girl summer,” and it’s been appearing all over social media. She explained in an interview with The Root that “it’s about women and men just being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up your friends, doing you, not giving a damn about what nobody gotta say about it. You definitely have to be a person who can be the life of the party and you know, just a bad b*tch.”
Following her Fever album release, the Houston rapper has just dropped new music with a single titled “Hot Girl Summer” featuring fellow hot girl Nicki Minaj. The Juicy J-produced track also features Ty Dolla $ign and a sample from City Girls‘ song “Act Up.” Since the release, the track has become the first female rap collaboration in history to hit #1 on U.S. iTunes. Stream the song below and start adding it to your summer jam playlists.
Megan Thee Stallion will continue her hot girl summer this fall by accompanying Meek Mill and Future on their North American Legendary Nights Tour. For more from the rising star, check out our interview with Megan Thee Stallion.
