2019 was a dominating year for women in hip hop. With a new projects from Summer Walker, Lizzo to Megan Thee Stallion we are ready to make a full transition into hot girl fall. Summer Walker’s album is the first R&B album to chart in ten years along with Lizzo who is in the running for breaking the longest streaming number one unaccompanied female rap record for “Truth Hurts” along with another song charting called “Good as Hell” at number twenty four. Lizzo has earned the number one spot on Billboard and the Nielsen Music ratings. Summer Walker in her breakout year has gotten a remix from Drake for the “Girls Need Love Remix” as well as fourteen writing credits on Billboard’s and the number one spot on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop album and the number two spot on Billboard’s all genre Top 200 Album charts for her project Over It. Her top streaming songs are “Playing Games” at number sixteen and “I’ll Kill You” featuring Jhene Aiko coming in at number sixty-one. Along with these ladies are Megan Thee Stallion and Halsey. Megan has just wrapped up her Legendary Nights Tour with Meek Mill and Future while Halsey has just released “Graveyard” which is part of her upcoming project Manic, set to be released in January of 2020. Megan also has two songs on the charts with “Hot Girl Summer” featuring Nicki Minaj at number thirty-one and “Cash Shit” featuring DaBaby coming in at number fifty-five from her summer project Fever while Halsey is charting at number forty-four with “Graveyard” only being on the charts for four weeks. Both Normani and Saweetie are charting with their most popular singles “Motivation” and “My Type” which were both released this year with beautiful visuals that both pay homage to old school hip hop through airbrush outfits and samples from Petey Pablo. Normani even has a feature with Sam Smith that is doing incredibly well at number thirty-three on Billboard. Saweetie’s “My Type” was the breakout single on her Icy project and has earned a peak position at number twenty-one on Billboard and is still sitting pretty at number thrity-five. Even the City Girls have solidified their name on the charts with summer singles like “Act Up” charting on Billboard’s Hot 100 Emerging Artists. Younger artists like Billie Eilish and Camila Cabello have singles like “Bad Guy” and “Senorita” that are also doing very well on the charts. Billie Eilish’s single has been on the charts for twenty-eights weeks which is impressive for a seventeen year old while Camila’s collaboration with Shawn Mendes has earned her the number three spot on Billboard and the number ten spot on Nielsen Music ratings with “Senorita” remaining on the charts for sixteen weeks straight. We hope to see more women curate spaces in music for other emerging female artists. These ladies are carving lanes for other women to express themselves and to be seen and heard in a space that has not always been very accepting of women.
