After birthing the phenomenon known as “Hot Girl Summer,” its official anthem has finally arrived, courtesy of Megan Thee Stallion, with a little assistance from a pair of artists equally about that liberated life: Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj.
We first learned of Nicki and Ty’s involvement with the song on Monday, when the music discovery app Shazam spilled the beans on who would be featured.
Official confirmation soon followed when Megan, born Megan Symone Pete, took to Instagram to stir her fans into a frenzy.
“REAL MF HOT GIRL SHIT 🔥🔥🔥,” she wrote. ”THE HOT GIRLS TOOK OVER THE MF SUMMER SO IT WAS ONLY RIGHT TO GIVE THE HOTTIES THE OFFICIAL TRACK !!! HOT GIRL SUMMER FT. @nickiminaj and @tydollasign dropping 8/9 🔥🔥🔥🔥”
Ty Dolla $ign is that dude, but how the hell is he on this song and not Lizzo? Especially considering the budding love affair between Megan, the “Truth Hurts” singer and her flute?
How dare we be denied more flute? Plus, they’re drinking buddies!
Regardless, it was nice knowing you, “Old Town Road.” The song of the summer has officially arrived.
