Saweetie’s ‘My Type’ Is Now the Second Platinum Hit of Her Career

Published: Tuesday 5th Nov 2019 by Rashad

Having two Platinum hits before your debut album?  We’re sure that’s Saweetie‘s type of good news.

Not even two months after her introductory/underground hit, 2017’s ‘Icy,’ was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the 26-year-old’s greeted with reports her first charting effort – ‘My Type’ – has seen its title typed beside Platinum status as well.

Details inside:


With a peak of #21 on the Hot 100 (to date), ‘Type’ comes as one of the year’s best performing SOLO female Rap numbers.  A feat aided by a handsome mixture of streams, digital downloads, radio airplay, multiple unofficial remixes, the viral #MyTypeChallenge, and more, the London on da Track-produced cut – which prominently samples Petey Pablo‘s 2003 hit ‘Freek-a-Leek’ – serves as the California-born beauty’s breakthrough hit.

Its enduring commercial performance on charts was awarded by the RIAA recently when it was announced the tune had crossed the organization’s threshold for Platinum status, denoting sales equivalence of over 1 million units shifted.

The success of the song undoubtedly increases calls for the femcee’s first studio album.

    SHE HAS NO TALENT AT ALL. She makes Kash Doll seem like Barbara Streisand or something. Just terrible

    Most annoying out of ALL of the female rappers. I’d rather listen to every single Trina song TWICE rather than anything this Saweetie puts out.

    Icy – she stole Khia’s Beat
    My type- she stole Petey Pablo’s beat which artist will she still next Beyoncé’s ?

      True. Her “hits” are just reworkings of other people’s hits. She lacks originality. It’s not too late for her to differentiate herself though.

    Thank God for streaming……otherwise some of thses rappers both male and female would never be heard of

    I can’t lie – “My Type” was a bop last summer. I never heard of the other song though. I don’t see Saweetie going any farther than she already is. No shade, no tea.

      Icy was a remix where she had Kehlani rapping better than some of these females. Saweetie did steal that Beyonce beat too for Emotional with Quavo. She a business woman as well.

    Lol! Yeah, I think for a lot of people when “My type” comes on, the nostalgia for 2019 will definitely come.

    She’s unproblematic, she stay in her lane. She deserves what’ success comes her way. She lets black girls know going to school can be cute and fun while learning. She no lyricist however neither is Cardi.. so why is sawatee getting hated on ? Is it because she’s black?
