Fans of ‘Best Friend’ co-stars Saweetie and Doja Cat originally had their calendars marked for the June 25 arrival of both femcees’ new albums – ‘Pretty B*tch Music’ and ‘Planet Her’ – respectively.
New reports reveal, however, those who have been impatiently waiting to tap, tap, tap in to the former’s serially delayed debut LP will have to watch the clock just a little while longer.
Despite confirming the June 25 arrival date of her inaugural studio effort just last week during a visit to ‘Kimmel Live!’ (as we reported here), the rapstress (born Diamonté Harper) later chatted with Big Tigga to report the set had been pushed back.
“[‘Pretty B*tch Music’] was supposed to come out this month, but I was really living with it and one of my goals is for people to really feel something with every song,” she said at the video’s 6:24 mark. “I had to go back and reconstruct some songs. Just know that I am a perfectionist and it’s on the way.”
Although she did not confirm a new release date, she later elaborated on the reasoning behind the delay as well as some of the project’s creative redirection.
“I think one thing people will really grasp [about the album] is the art. That’s something I haven’t been able to focus on,” she stated at the video’s 12:42 stamp. “When people really indulge into this music I want them to feel like they’re experiencing something. I really want to tap into my artistry and my creativity. I did major in theater and take art classes. I want to submerse all my creativity into one project – that’s why I’m taking my time with it.”
The ultimate goal, according to Harper, is to make timeless music.
“I do admit I did fall victim to having to put out club records and songs that caught right away. I had to catch myself. That’s not the reason I fell in love with music,” she revealed before later stating, “When I really listen to timeless music, it really makes you feel like something. That’s my goal for my album.”
