We Should All Be Having a "Hot Girl Summer" Like Megan Thee Stallion

By

By this point, you've probably heard many a woman, man and brand proclaim they're going to have a "hot girl summer." But what is a hot girl summer? According to Megan Thee Stallion, the rapper who brought the phrase to its present popularity, a hot girl summer can be pretty much whatever you want it to be... as long as you own it. 

Where did "hot girl summer" start?

Megan Thee Stallion, who often refers to herself as "Hot Girl Meg," had a song on her 2018 album Tina Snow called "Hot Girl." She used the phrase again the lyrics of "Cash S--t," a breakout track from her newest album, Fever (released in May 2019). 

From there, the "real hot girl s--t" line started a movement. Hot Girl Meg and her music became the soundtrack for everyone wanting to have a #HotGirlSummer.
