American rapper Megan Thee Stallion has released her new song, “Flamin’ Hottie.” It’s produced by OG Parker and mixed and mastered by Mike Dean. The track also interpolates Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It.”
The track was made to promote Frito-Lay products Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and Flamin’ Hot Doritos and sees Stallion making several references to the crisps with lyrics like “Just like Cheetos on your fingers, wanna suck me,” and “Know I’m all that and a bag of flamin’ hot chips.” Elsewhere in the track, she raps “Ayy, ayy, moral of the story, I’ma get to the bag“.
Megan Thee Stallion made “Flamin’ Hotties” to promote the Frito-Lay products Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and Flamin’ Hot Doritos. She makes several references to the snack foods on the track, rapping, “Just like Cheetos on your fingers, wanna suck me,” and, “Know I’m all that and a bag of flamin’ hot chips.” She also name drops the Cheetos mascot Chester Cheetah: “This cat talk back like Chester.”
Obviously, you won’t hear the full track in the commercial, but the song is currently available to stream across all platforms until Feb. 18. The beat of the song moves along just like “Push It,” but when you hear Meg’s lyrics it’s clear she kept things real hot girl sh*t: “Damn, I’m so hot, can’t touch me/Just like Cheetos on your fingers, wanna suck me/ Sick of y’all hypin’ up all this bullsh*t/ Thinkin’ hoes hotter than me/ Don’t push it.”
Megan stars as a hummingbird alongside an animated beatboxing fox (Charlie Puth) in the spot that will air on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 13), when the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Los Angeles Rams. “I am The Hot Girl Coach,” Megan told Billboard about why she teamed up with the chip conglomerate for their “Unleash Your Flamin’ Hot” campaign. “I am Miss Flamin’ Hottie. I mean, I am all things hot. So I feel like it was very necessary for the Hot Cheeto and the Hot Girl to get together.”
Puth recently told Billboard that he was equally psyched to star in the first spot to bring the Flamin’ Hot Doritos and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos brands together. “The premise is that all these animals eat these Flamin’ Hot products and they become musically active, they start harmonizing and being in synch and perfect tempo with each other and that’s what happened to me life as well. I have some Cool Ranch Doritos and I’m off to the races writing five songs,” he said.
“It’s technically a collaboration. I think she’s wonderful and I have nothing but good things to say about her,” he added about working with Stallion. It’s also worth noting that if you want your “Flamin’ Hotties,” you better get them now, because the song will only be available to snack on until Feb. 18.
Frito-Lay announced that a dance video for “Flamin’ Hottie” will debut on Super Bowl Sunday in a first-of-its-kind “Snackable Screen” lens via Snapchat, which will be accessible by pointing the Snap camera at a Flamin’ Hot chip; it will also appear on the official Cheetos and Doritos YouTube pages on Feb. 14.
In a Feb. 4 interview with Billboard, the rapper expanded on her latest collaboration with the chip company. “I am The Hot Girl Coach,” she said. “I am Miss Flamin’ Hottie. I mean, I am all things hot. So I feel like it was very necessary for the Hot Cheeto and the Hot Girl to get together.”
Megan Thee Stallion first garnered attention when videos of her freestyling became popular on social media platforms such as Instagram. She signed to 300 Entertainment in 2018 where she released the mixtape Fever (2019) and the extended play Suga (2020) both of which peaked in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.
Her first official single came with 2016’s “Like a Stallion,” and her presence on the Houston rap circuit was solidified by decimating all opponents in local freestyle competitions.
Explicit lyrics and effortless flows became signatures of her sound, and after the less-widely distributed 2016 mixtape Rich Ratchet, she released the singles “Pull Up Late” and “Stalli (Freestyle)” in 2017, the latter of which had an accompanying video that would be viewed millions of times. The seven-track EP Make It Hot arrived that same year and a slowed-down “chopped” remix version of the EP followed the next year.
Megan’s fame grew quickly, and as she gained more fans and followers, she signed with 300 Entertainment in 2018 and released her most consistently produced work to date with the ten-song Tina Snow.
The late-2018 collection featured a cameo from Memphis rapper Moneybagg Yo and production from Concept P. The project caught on, and a video for single “Big Ole Freak” was streamed millions of times within months of its February 2019 release.
Megan Thee Stallion released “Something for Thee Hottie” as a gesture of gratitude for her fan base, and the album reached the number five position on the charts.
