Hot Girl Summer

“Megan Thee Stallion is at the forefront of the ‘Women’s Rap Renaissance!'”360 MAGAZINE

“This is the year of the ‘hot girl summer’ ”  NBC NEWS


“The lifestyle choice of summer 2019: Hot Girl Summer.” –HUFFINGTON POST


“If you’ve logged onto Twitter or swiped through your Instagram at any point this summer, you’ve definitely seen a post declaring it’s a hot girl summer. The now-ubiquitous phrase, a call to live your most confident and unapologetic life, was coined in the early months of the season by Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion.” – TIME MAGAZINE


“Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and her definitive tweet that this season is made for hot girls, made the phrase the season’s most ubiquitous meme, an internet-wide catchphrase.” – WIRED


“Her power lies directly in her self-confidence, honesty, and unmitigated desire to dominate-and not just when it comes to life itself; these qualities pour through her music.” – COMPLEX


“[Megan Thee Stallion] exudes a confidence of an artist that has been mastering the game for at least a decade.” –BILLBOARD


“Her music is unapologetically Southern, with her thick Houston accent bouncing effortlessly over sensual and bare trap beats, allowing her lyricism and delivery to shine through.” –ROLLING STONE


“If you don’t know the name Megan Thee Stallion, you will soon: she’s one of the fastest rising rappers and finds herself rooted in a pop culture moment that’s all about the yeehaw agenda, country-trap and sex-positive messaging.” – PASTE

If one thing is clear, Megan Thee Stallion owns Summer 2019! The Houston based MC and cultural icon, Megan Thee Stallion, continues her hot girl hot streak today with the release of new single, “Hot Girl Summer” feat. Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. The single boasts production from hip-hop icon Juicy J and features a sample from the hit City Girls’ song “Act Up.” The track is named after the biggest cultural phenomenon of 2019, established by Megan, known as #HOTGIRLSUMMER. The phrase and viral meme not only encompasses everything Megan stands for but has also become a rallying cry for men and women around the world and is catapulting Megan into a household name.

When explaining #HOTGIRLSUMMER Megan states, “it’s just 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 gotta say about it.”

Megan has had a monumental year that includes this week’s digital cover of PAPER Magazine, a print cover of The FADER’s Summer issue, being named as one of XXL Magazine’s 2019 Freshman, a late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and multiple radio hits such as “Cash Shit” and “Big Ole Freak.” Her critically-acclaimed project Fever has been praised by the likes of Rolling Stone, The Fader, XXL, Billboard, Pitchfork, Paper, and more.

Beyond being a successful rapper, Megan is currently a college student, environmental activist, philanthropist, Chance the Rapper’s occasional dietary consultant, and life coach for the world at large. Megan has hosted beauty pageants that award scholarships to “hotties” who also happen to be students, organized the first “Hottie Beach Clean Up” in Los Angeles, and still has time to regularly spread the word of hot girl summer on social media. With each move she makes she continues to set herself apart as the most unique, inspirational, and driven artist out right now, so it’s no wonder she can count Kylie Jenner, Drake, Jada Pinkett Smith, Nicki Minaj, etc. as some of her fans.

Due to climate change, hot girl summer will be continuing well into the Fall when Megan joins Meek Mill and Future for their North American Legendary Nights Tour with YG and Mustard (select tour dates below)., but for now she shows no signs of slowing down. Stay tuned for more news as #HOTGIRLSUMMER is far from over!

Maggie Lindemann Stars In Friends Go

Maggie Lindemann has consistently challenged her self-identity and evolved as an artist throughout a career that’s already seen her pass the billion streams landmark. Her breakthrough smash ‘Pretty Girl’ established her as a breaking pop icon before she took a reflective, goth-tinged approach with ‘Would I’ and ‘Human’.

Her latest cut ‘Friends Go’ continues her exploration of mental health issues, but the music has shifted again with a modernist update of Gwen Stefani-style attitude and summery island rhythms. Now Maggie uses ‘Friends Go’ as the soundtrack to the short film ‘Death By Third Wheel’, which was directed by Van Alpert (Post Malone, Local Natives). 

Van Alpert’s vision for the track is cinematic in scale, and captures the emotional heart of the song in a way that’s visually striking.

He commented, “My goal is making a video feel bigger than life, something that you’d only see in a movie theatre – a little escape from your life while you watch. I wanted the car to be a representation of Maggie’s heart. The car crashing, bouncing and exploding in artistic ways gives you an overall feeling of excitement. When you lose your mind from being excluded from your friends or love, your heart goes through it, just like the car. 

I strayed away from the obvious storyline, with the backbone being multiple beautiful crashes where no-one gets hurt. The video is fun and surprising. It hits you over the head and gives you clues throughout of what’s coming. It was the most fun I’ve ever had making a video.”

‘Friends Go’ commences Maggie’s build-up to her first full-length project which is set to be released later in the year. It’s set to add another new chapter to a career in which Maggie has emerged as an icon of her generation, with over a billion audio streams, 5.4 million monthly listeners at Spotify, 186 million views at YouTube, 3.5 million followers at Instagram and an international array of Platinum awards. She’s also performed with Khalid, Troye Sivan and Sabrina Carpenter. She has garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Complex, Uproxx, NYLON, Bustle, Idolator, L’Officiel as well as Paper, who named her as one of “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.”

Maggie has been further celebrated in the world of fashion. She launched her single ‘Obsessed’ with an innovative partnership with the make-up brand Pat McGrath and recently teamed up with Skinny Dip for a sunglasses collaboration. She’s also unveiled her own merch line in the shape of SWIXXZ.

The monumental track is over a year in the making- Matt of Cheat Codes explains: “We met up with Afrojack in the studio over a year ago, we wanted to figure out how we could blend our two sounds into something cohesive. We first heard the drop and knew it was something we could come together on. A lot of the process was back and forth through email sending demos. Gonna have to hit the stage together at some point because the clubs are gonna love this one.”

The dance-floor ready anthem is juxtaposed by it’s dark lyrical narrative that ultimately tells the tale of a missteps in a relationship. Matt adds, “Ferrari is that moment when you really mess up in a relationship and have to overcompensate to try and make it better”

“Ferrari” follows, “Feeling of Falling,” their new single and collaboration with pop sensation KIM PETRAS. The euphoric anthem pairs Cheat Codes’ signature sugary electronic hooks with Kim’s mesmerizing vocals. The group released a remix bundle of the track, featuring re-works from the likes of Daniel Blume, Danny Quest, Justin Caruso, and Angemi, as well as Steve Aoki – which is available now.  Cheat Codes, who are touring with Steve Aoki throughout the UK this February, recently remixed Aoki’s collaboration with BTS,  “Waste It On Me”.

“Ferrari” comes in the wake of another exciting year for Cheat Codes. The group are on the heels of their track, “Only You” which featured Little Mix and its inventive music video featuring TV star, Peyton List. “Only You” hit #1 at UK radio and received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, TIME and Rolling Stone.  Earlier this year, the group was joined by Fetty Wap and CVBZ to take the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform their single, “Feels Great.”
