Megan Thee Stallion recently hit a music milestone as her song with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, “Hot Girl Summer,” went platinum.
According to The Source, Megan’s hit, which was inspired by her coined phrase that went viral this past summer, received RIAA certification less than six months since its premiere. The rapper decided to celebrate her win with a screenshot of the certification on her Instagram page. She then tagged the photo with the people who helped make her platinum hit possible — Juicy J, who produced the track, Nicki, and Ty.
Megan’s fans were more than happy to celebrate the rapper’s accomplishment with her. She received more than 180,000 likes from her robust Instagram following, which currently sits at 7.4 million followers. Several of Megan’s fans also left encouraging comments for the 25-year-old celeb.
“KEEP WINNING BABY,” one fan wrote.
“YESSSSSS! Congratulations Meg!!!” another fan exclaimed.
“Real hot girl s–t!! The Princess and the Queen!” a third follower said of Megan and Nicki’s collaboration.
“If anyone deserves it it’s you,” chimed in a fourth social media user.
Megan and Nicki hinted back in July that they would be working together in some capacity. After expressing their love for each other on social media, they decided to shock their fans by going live on Instagram. Days later, the rappers announced that they would be working on a song together. “Hot Girl Summer” then premiered in August.
“Hot Girl Summer” became a craze back in June after multiple women and celebrities began discussing it on their social media pages. The phrase inspired women from all over the world to party for the season and helped make Megan a pop culture icon. The “Freak Nasty” artist even trademarked the phrase as it continued to gain popularity. She shared with Allure that it was important for her to trademark her phrase after seeing fashion retailers use it without consulting her.
“When I saw Wendy’s and Forever 21 saying, ‘Hey, are you having a Hot Girl Summer?’ I was like, ‘Hell no, Forever 21, you’re going to have to pay me.’ But I just wanted to get it trademarked because it’s me. It’s my thing.”
This is Megan’s second platinum record this year. The rapper and college student hit platinum earlier this year for her song, “Cash S–t,” which features DaBaby on her Fever mixtape. She also received a gold plaque for her hit, “Big Ole Freak,” the rapper’s debut song.
