(AllHipHop News) A lot of social media users will remember Summer 2019 for young women around the world embracing the mission of having a Hot Girl Summer. Houston's Megan Thee Stallion is credited as the founder of the HGS movement.
Meg is now trying to ensure she gets paid for her contribution to the culture's vernacular. According to Billboard, the Fever mixtape creator filed to trademark "Hot Girl Summer" on July 10.
Over the last several weeks, numerous companies - such as Wendy’s, Forever 21, and Maybelline - have used the "Hot Girl Summer" meme to market their products. Megan Thee Stallion's catchphrase also launched the playful Hot Girls versus City Boys feud online.
What exactly does it mean to have a Hot Girl Summer? Megan explained her definition to The Root, "It's about women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up your friends, doing you, not giving a damn about what nobody got to say about it... You definitely have to be a person that can be the life of the party and just a bad b*tch."
In addition, Hot Girl Meg curated a "Hot Girl Summer" playlist for Spotify with tracks by Lil Kim, City Girls, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Tierra Whack, SZA, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Missy Elliott, Saweetie, Rico Nasty, Maliibu Miitch, Kash Doll, Melii, Trina, Doja Cat, and more. The collection was a response to Future's "Hot Boy Summer" playlist.
