Minaj hopped on the Juicy J-produced track after going on Instagram Live with Megan last week. The two hit it off instantly, and according to the 24-year-old rapper, Minaj sent over her verse soon after. “The song was already recorded and ready to go and we went live together and she literally recorded her verse that night,” Megan told Daily Pop. “They sent the song to me and I was like ‘this is not real life, ya’ll are playing with me right now!’”
“I love it,” she added. “[It’s] amazing and I can’t believe she did it so fast.”
Megan has been having one hell of a “hot girl summer,” what with collaborating with Chance the Rapper and Khalid, promoting her Fever mixtape and watching “Big Ole Freak” climb the charts.
After coining the term — which doubles as a colloquialism and popular internet meme, and has been used by brands including Forever 21, Wendy’s and VH1 — the college student filed documents to trademark the catchphrase last month.
