What is Hot Girl Summer?

Hot Girl Summer is a phrase often used by women to describe a summer full of fun.

If someone is going to have a Hot Girl Summer, it means they are going to party, have fun with their friends, be confident and live their best life during the warmer months.

To have a proper Hot Girl Summer, you’ve usually got to be single too. No men allowed!

The phrase was started by Megan Thee Stallion

The term was actually originally coined by Megan Thee Stallion who has a song called Hot Girl Summer featuring Nicki Minaj.

Since 2016, Megan has always referred to herself as ‘Hot Girl Meg’, and she made reference to this in her songs Hot Girl and Cash S***.

Then, it was actually her fans that turned this into the phrase Hot Girl Summer, and Megan obviously liked the phrase so used it as the title of her 2019 track.

Megan describes being a ‘hot girl’

So what is Hot Girl Summer according to Megan herself?

Well, she once tweeted that being a hot girl is about being “unapologetically you”, “being confident”, “living your truth” and “being the life of the party”.

In an interview with Root, she also said:

“It’s just basically about women — and men — just 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, y’know, just a bad b****.”
