Trendsetter Saweetie returns with her club-ready banger featuring rapper Doja Cat. This Best Friend anthem is primed for a wild girls’ night out (or in). It’s all a prelude to Saweetie’s debut album Pretty B*tch Music, on ICY/Warner Records. Get Best Friend here.
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 another single that manages to embody all of those attributes — and more — in under three minutes.
Over slapping drums, Saweetie and Doja Cat trade bars that celebrate the other’s success, beauty, and independence. Saweetie spits lines throughout, including: “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 her streak of 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 recently went on The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her forthcoming album and performed on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Up next, she talks Best Friend with the ladies of The Real, and on 11 January 2021 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 Pretty B*tch Music.
