Multi-platinum artist and global trendsetter, Saweetie, returns with her club-ready banger “Best Friend,” featuring GRAMMY®-nominated rapper/singer Doja Cat. An empowering anthem, “Best Friend” is primed for the most wild girls’ night out (or in). The chemistry and confidence of these two rising superstars pumping each other up is undeniable, a perfect prelude to Saweetie’s forthcoming debut album Pretty B*tch Music on ICY/Warner Records. Get “Best Friend” HERE and watch the Dave Meyers-directed video HERE.
Over slapping drums, Saweetie and Doja Cat trade bars that celebrate the other’s success, beauty, and independence. Saweetie spits clever lines throughout, including the catchy hook: “That’s my best friend, she a real bad b*tch / Drive her own car, she don’t need no Lyft.” Doja Cat matches her with equally sharp rhymes: “If she ride for me, she don’t need a key.”
“Best Friend” continues Saweetie’s streak of anthemic collaborations and social domination. Over the summer, she dropped the thundering “Tap In” remix with DaBaby, Post Malone, and Jack Harlow, accompanied by an animated music video. Most recent was her Billboard-charting, Jhené Aiko-assisted single, “Back to the Streets.” Saweetie is one of the most viral artists on social media and is also one of TikTok’s top artists with 12.5 million original videos featuring her music—a distinction backed by her half-billion YouTube views, and over 2 billion cumulative streams to date. She recently went on The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her forthcoming album and performed on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. More than a commercial star, she’s earned the praise of Billboard, The FADER, Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, Variety, and more for her top-tier rhymes and irrepressible charisma. Up next, Saweetie talks “Best Friend” today with the ladies of The Real, and on January 11th, she taps into A Little Late with Lilly Singh.
While “Best Friend” scores Zoom hangouts and socially distanced gatherings for lifelong friends waiting to get back to the club, the Red Bulletin cover star is preparing for the release of her debut album, Pretty B*tch Music. With production from Timbaland, Danja, Lil John, Murda Beatz, and more, Pretty B*tch Music is the soundtrack to Saweetie’s inspiring movement, which encourages all women to define their own “pretty.” She’s said before that her empowered definition of B*tch = Boss. Independent. Tough. CEO. Hyphy. “Best Friend” is yet another single that manages to embody all of those attributes—and more—in under 3 minutes.
