Megan Thee Stallion wants her credit where it's due. She is in the process of trademarking her slogan "Hot Girl Summer."

According to a new report from Billboard, the trademark was filed July 10. In a previous tweet, the Houston rapper explained to a fan that she was in the process of making the trademark a reality. Nonetheless the "Hot Girl Summer" catchphrase has caught social media by storm and brands have used it to their favor. The trademark for the catchphrase will cover merchandise for products such as hoodies, T-shirts, sportswear and more if approved.

Many have used Megan's slogan including actress Jada Pinkett Smith. While on Instagram, the "Red Table Talk" host uploaded a photo of her having fun in the sun in a green-colored bikini. "I'LL take that joyful hot girl summer thank you," the mom of two wrote as her caption.

If one thing is for sure, it's not easy securing a trademark. Earlier this year, Cardi B attempted to trademark her catchphrase "okuurrr" to use on merchandise like paper cups, posters, and a future clothing line. According to The Blast, Cardi's slogan falls under the category of "widely-used commonplace expressions." Elsewhere during the report, they noted that the phrase "is a slogan or term that does not function as a trademark or service mark to indicate the source of applicant's goods and/or services."

Last month, the 24-year-old spitter hosted her inaugural "Hottie Beach Clean Up" at Santa Monica Pier. "It's not all about driving the motherf--king boat," the Houston rapper said to her fans at the beach. "We got s--t to do. We got s--t to save. Causes to motherf--king fulfill. I really want to help. We're going to clean this motherf--king beach up, and then we're gonna drive the boat."

In other Megan-related news, she is set to perform at this year's inaugural Day N Vegas Festival, which is scheduled for November. Megan will join many other talented artists including Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Juice WLRD, 21 Savage and more.
