The term “Hot Girl Summer” has gained global recognition thanks to her fans ever since the 24-year-old Houston MC dropped her mixtape, Fever, back in May. A picture of her came with the statement “She’s thee hot girl and she’s bringing thee heat” as the cover art.
Since then, the phrase has caught a lot of attention by brands including Forever 21,Wendy’s, Maybelline, and app, Duolingo.
The phrase has gained so much traction and has been defined in so many ways that Megan had to take to Twitter earlier this month to explain what it means be a “Hot Girl.”
Being a Hot Girl is about being unapologetically YOU, having fun, being confident,living YOUR truth , being the life of the party etc
