Just three months after releasing her EP Suga, Megan Thee Stallion
kicks off Hot Girl Summer with her new single "Girls in the Hood." The Houston
hottie spits flames over a sample of Eazy-E's West Coast classic "Boyz-n-the-Hood."
"Wack hoes hate under my pictures on the 'Gram / Bitch, you better hope I never run across your man," raps the Savage
x Fenty ambassador, who also shouts out Rihanna. "In the mall wit' 'em / I'ma have a ball wit' 'em / Somebody call Rihanna, I'ma buy some drawers wit' 'em."
"Girls in the Hood" follows a string of 2020 singles from the rapper, including "Diamonds
" with Normani
from the Birds of Prey soundtrack and"Freak
" with Tyga, alongside "B.I.T.C.H" and "Captain Hook
" from her third EP, Suga, which dropped in March. The Beyoncé remix of Suga song, "Savage
" reached Number One on Rolling Stone's Top 100 Songs Chart in May.
Meg's big year continues. After topping the charts with her Beyoncé-assisted hit "Savage," she is nominated for five awards at the 2020 BET Awards including Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Album of the Year, and Video of the Year. She will also perform during Sunday's ceremony, which airs live on BET and CBS at 8 p.m. ET.

joined hundreds of artists and other music industry professionals in signing a police reform open letter urging New York state to repeal statute 50-A, which shields police disciplinary records from public view.
