'Hot Girl Summer' Meme Explained - Where Is It From?

Have you noticed a lot of people saying “Hot girl summer” or calling themselves “hot girl” online? It’s all because of…Megan Thee Stallion!

The 24-year-old rapper has started a cultural movement with the phrase, captioning many of her photos for months with the term “hot girl,” as well as including the term in the artwork for her hot new album Fever (“She’s thee HOT GIRL and she’s bringing THEE HEAT,” it reads) as well as the first lyric of her song “Cash S–t”: “real hot girl s–t.”

“It’s about women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up their friends, doing you…not giving a damn about what anybody gotta say. You definitely have to be a person who can be the life of the party and just a bad bitch,” she said of the now viral phrase “hot girl summer” to The Root.

Plenty of stars, including Jordyn Woods and Chloe x Halle have used the phrase to caption their “hot girl” pictures as well.
