Megan Thee Stallion has released her highly anticipated video for the song “Hot Girl Summer” featuring Nicky Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. The track won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Power Anthem a week ahead of the video premiere.
The video directed by Munachi Osegbu starts with social media starlet Jaimesha Thomas getting ready for “the hottest pool party of the summer”. Clad in a cowboy hat, blouse and denim shorts, she joins Megan and Nicky at a pumped-up pool party.
Other stars dancing by the swimming pool include song collaborators, rapper Ty Dolla $ign and producer Juicy J. The clip also features cameo appearances from the likes of Rico Nasty, Ari Lennox and La La Anthony.
Megan Thee Stallion recently teamed up with Quavo and City Girls for the track called “Pastor” taken from Quality Control’s compilation Control the Streets, Vol. 2. The album also includes songs from Young Thug, French Montana, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott and others.
The rapper also performed during the MTV VMAs pre-show on August 26. She sang “Hot Girl Summer”, as well as “Cash Shit”, her collaboration with Da Baby.
Earlier this summer, Nicky Minaj shared a new single “Megatron”, which is a follow-up to her last year’s album Queen. Nicky recently cancelled her Saudi Arabia performance in support of the local LGBTQ+ community. She was supposed to appear at the Jeddah World Fest in July.
