Hot Girls, rejoice. Your soundtrack of the summer is officially here. After weeks of teasing fans, the official song of the summer was on the way only to be curtailed by a week-long delay. Now, Megan Thee Stallion has finally delivered the official song of the summer on Friday (August 9) as promised, and Hot Girl Summer just got hotter. Megan and Nicki Minaj delivered the heat as expected.
For the three-minute sultry anthem, Megan enlisted Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign to help her give fans one last hype-AF hurrah before the season simmers out. The song kicks off with a toss back to rap duo City Girls as JT’s iconic catchphrase pops off over a throbbing bass line as the Juicy J-sampled backing production kicks in.
The song hearkens back Hennesey-entrenched summer escapades as Megan and Nicki trade bars on the mic about living out their best ratchet lives.
The Houston rapper fires off instant quotables like: "Got a whole lot of options ’cause you know a b**ch poppin’ / I’m a hot girl so you know ain’t s**t stoppin,” and Nicki comes through with an equally fire verse. Ty’s smooth R&B vocals on the hook bridges together the rap ladies' savage takes as he dreamily sings, “It's a Hot Girl Summer, so you know she got it lit.”
Although hot girl summer is waning to its end with just a little over a month left in the season, the song caps off the season in record-sizzling fashion that brings to life just what exactly it entails.
Fans are clearly feeling the vibes as the song peaked at number one on iTunes and has been steadily burning up the charts within hours of its release.
Hotties are already plotting pop off at the club in their best 'fits — if they haven’t combusted from all the heat Nicki and Meg were dishing.
