It’s officially Hot Girl Summer now that Megan Thee Stallion is embarking on the tour for the 2019 anthem that catapulted her to stardom.

The 28-year-old rapper announced the tour on “Good Morning America” this week, as well as having her third album in the works, following 2022’s “Traumatize.”

“The Hot Girl Summer tour is gonna be 2024 summertime. I feel like I’ve never been able to be outside doing my own thing during the summer, since like 2019, so this is gonna be the first time I drop an album on time for the summer,” said the “Savage” artist. “I do want to give the hotties the Megan Thee Stallion experience.”

It’s unclear when or where the tour will kick off.

The news comes on the heels of the Grammy Award winner appearing as herself in the new “Mean Girls” musical — the big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical, which was itself the stage take on the 2004 hit film.

The rapper also collaborated with Renée Rapp, who stars as this era’s Regina George, on one of the soundtrack’s entries, “Not My Fault.”

Back in September, the “Big Mouth” actress also made headlines as Tory Lanez was sentenced to a decade behind bars for shooting her in 2020.

“For the past couple years, music just seemed so negative to me,” the “Cobra” rapper told “GMA,” noting that she “wasn’t in a good space mentally after everything that had happened to me, and it just all felt like I’m tired of this, I’m tired of fighting.”

But she noted that making new music felt “like therapy, it was like a real diary entry.”

While “Hot Girl Summer” dropped in the months before the coronavirus pandemic, Megan Thee Stallion has remained prominent in tunes and onscreen. In addition to collaborating with Cardi B on “WAP,” which promptly became the summer anthem of 2020, she appeared as herself in an episode of the Disney+ series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.”
