ACL Fest 2019 Week Two Record Reviews

Save Lizzo and White Claw, nobody's had a better summer than H-Town hottie Megan Pete. The 24-year-old rapper who spawned the "Hot Girl Summer" hashtag capped the sweltering season with a Nicki Minaj collab and inking a management deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation, and kicked it off by dropping her debut album. Fever hinges on bouncing beats and an inspired brand of feminism: "Bitch, I'm a star, got these n*ggas wishin'/ He say he hungry, this pussy the kitchen." (1:15pm, Miller Lite stage)
