Winter may be fast approaching, but Hot Girl Meg still blazes on. Megan Thee Stallion filmed a session for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, and delivered a number of noteworthy moments in the process, including the debut of a new song.
The dynamic 25-minute performance saw the Houston rapper roll out seven songs while backed by Brooklyn’s Phony Ppl, marking the first time she’d played in public with a live band. Viral hit “Hot Girl Summer” was part of the setlist, as were Fever mixtape tracks “Money Good” and “Cash Shit” (sans DaBaby). Toward the end of the concert, Megan Thee Stallion premiered an unreleased Phony Ppl collaboration dubbed “Fucking Around”.
