It was a “Hot Girl Summer” indeed. Megan Thee Stallion has already been proving herself over the last several years as a powerful new voice in the rap game, but 2019 seemed to be the year where she was starting to earn the respect she deserved. Being one of the picks of the 2019 “XXL Freshman List,” collaborating with rap powerhouses Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign, and due to the success of her newest album, “Fever,” Stallion’s name has been everywhere.
