NEW MUSIC: MEGAN THEE STALLION | FLAMIN' HOTTIE
Grammy winner Megan Thee Stallion is back! The rapper teamed up with Frito-Lay to release her new song, “Flamin’ Hottie.” The track clocks in at 1 minute and 48 seconds sample Salt-N-Pepa’s platinum-selling single “Push It.” “Push It” was featured in the Flamin’ Hot Super Bowl commercial that debuted earlier this week, and Megan is currently partnered with Flamin’ Hot. “As part of the initiative, Flamin’ Hot will also unveil a brand-new dance video for “Flamin’ Hottie” on Super Bowl Sunday,” a press release states. “The visual will premiere on a first-of-its-kind Snackable Screen via Snapchat on Super Bowl Sunday, which makes “Flamin’ Hottie” the first dance video you can watch on a Flamin’ Hot snack. Fans can also watch the music video via Cheetos and Doritos’ YouTube pages, beginning February 14.” Per a press release, the Super Bowl ad will also introduce the newest Doritos flavour, Flamin' Hot Cool Ranch, which hit store shelves in December 2021. The combination of Doritos' iconic flavour with a Flamin' Hot twist is likely to heat sales once the Super Bowl ad drops. This is the first song Megan has released since she dropped off her mixtape, “Something for the Hotties,” in November 2020. After taking a hiatus from social media, the “Savage” rapper sat down with Entertainment Tonight in early February and said there will be “some new hot stuff by the time Coachella gets [s] here.” She is set to perform at the music festival in April.
