Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign assist Megan Thee Stallion's new single
With a little over a month left in the season, rising rap star Megan Thee Stallion has dropped the song of Hot Girl Summer (appropriately titled — you guessed it — “Hot Girl Summer”).
The 24-year-old Houston native released the bass-heavy collaboration Friday morning, featuring supporting vocals from Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign between her own lyrics about maintaining self-confidence while juggling hardcore male attention.
Minaj previously admitted she “fell in love” with the track upon hearing it, and decided to write a verse even though she was in the process of losing her voice when initially approached for the song.
The single marks Megan’s first standalone release since unveiling her first full-length album, Fever, in May.
