Bay Area rapper, Saweetie, joined Nick Cannon Mornings to discuss being on the new Maxim cover, what she’s been doing during the quarantine, being crowned the prettiest rapper ever, her new fashion line, acting with Yara Shahidi on Grown-ish and more.
Her new song ‘Tap In’, which features a sample from Too Short’s ‘Blow The Whistle’, already has over 1 million views on Youtube. Nick asked Saweetie if she has figured out the formula to keep the girls dancing in the clubs, she replied, “I feel like it’s one of my formulas, because you know I like other beats, but you know sampling is my specialty.” Nick then tells her it’s good to have this kind of music out right now, considering how bad 2020 is going and that it’s important for people to have fun and her music does just that.
Coming off the heels of her mega-hit ‘My Type’, and ‘Tap In’ looking like it’s going in the same direction, Saweetie was asked what the future looks like for her album, she tells Nick, “So the project should be coming out [in] end of summer, beginning of fall. It’s already done but I didn’t take a year off, people felt that I did, but for me, artist development is hella important, so I just took the year to develop myself as an artist, as a woman, as an entrepreneur, as a CEO, as a fashionista…” She continued, “I just had to regroup for a little bit because ‘My Type’ took off, and I’m like, my world is crazy, let me just sit down and regroup. And what’s crazy is that Quarantine came around and I was able to do what I needed to do.”
