The single, released in June and included on new album Good News, espouses the virtues of being a "hot girl" and doing "hot shit." On TikTok, an audio sample stating, "I can't talk right now, I'm doing hot girl shit," is being used to transition into different examples and interpretations of hot girl shit.

One TikToker applied the meme to their mother "lacing into a telemarketer" and eating pizza.

The trend speaks to how people are coping during the pandemic, and the activities that bring them comfort: Like looking at Zillow and drawing that 'S' everyone drew in middle school.
