This summer was a wild one. We struggled to keep up with Megan Thee Stallion, the captain of "hot girl summer," and the nationwide White Claw shortage was enough to have us worried. The thriving genre gave us a summer full of slow creepers that weren't driven by the success of the same platinum-selling artists, with singers like Snoh Aalegra and SiR rising to cultural consciousness.
