With her top hits like “Best Friend” featuring Doja Cat and “Back to the Streets” featuring Jhené Aiko, the new single finds Saweetie holding down the track on her own. She reminds listeners of the effortless swagger she’s known for while encouraging them to tap into their own energy. “I can’t help I was born like this,” she raps. “Ain’t my fault that you want my drip.”
Inspired by Miami’s iconic dance culture, the high-energy single bounces between an infectious hook and Saweetie’s confident verses, and it arrives with a larger-than-life visual to match. The new song is another glimpse of what to expect from the California MC’s highly-anticipated debut album, Pretty B*tch Music, arriving June 25th.
Saweetie recently released her Best Friend (feat. Doja Cat) Remix EP, showcasing emerging international talent over her summer blockbuster. She also shared the steamy Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 EP, which featured a host of electric guests including L.A. rap innovator Drakeo the Ruler, rising star Loui, and up-and-coming Sacramento vocalist Kendra Jae.
More than a commercial star, she’s earned the praise of Billboard, Complex, Los Angeles Times, Cosmopolitan and more for her top-tier rhymes and irrepressible charisma. What’s more, Saweetie’s nominated for a 2021 Billboard Music Award for “Top Female Rap Artist” alongside Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. The show airs live May 23 at 8pm on NBC.
In the playful and punchy visual, Saweetie conquers competitors with ease while she races cars, spars in the boxing ring, charges down the football field, and goes head to head with WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson in a super-sized game of one-on-one. Throughout the video, Saweetie spotlights black-owned brands she consumes such as Brandon Blackwood, Matte Swimwear, Mielle Natural Hair Care, Frank’s Bod, and High Hemp in addition to brand partners Quay, Jack Daniels, and Triller.
She’s already been playlisted at Radio 1, 1Xtra, Capital XTRA and Kiss Fresh with DJ support including Tiffany Calver, Rickie, Melvin and Charlie, Jack Saundersand Yasmin Evans.
