Jimmy Fallon kicked off a full week of live episodes of “The Tonight Show” on Monday via a duet with rapper Megan Thee Stallion for a sequel to her hit track “Hot Girl Summer.”
“Hot Girl Summer” was released on Aug. 9, perhaps slightly too late to be considered the song of Summer 2019 even if “Old Town Road” didn’t exist. But Megan Thee Stallion is dope enough that there’s no reason why a sequel couldn’t become the official song of fall — especially given that midnight Tuesday marks the official beginning of the season.
Fallon and Megan rolled out a video for “Hot Girl Fall” on Monday’s episode of NBC’s late-night show. The song reminds people that autumn is “the season to get cozy with a pumpkin-ass beer,” and also to “grab a cable-knit scarf and your chunkiest sweater, ’cause the summer was dope, but the fall even better.”
Watch the video above.
The “Tonight Show” will be live all week long. Other performances throughout the week will include Mark Ronson featuring Yebba, Bastille and Carole King, plus a performance of The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” featuring guest Ringo Starr alongside Fallon and The Roots.
