Just a day before its originally announced June 25 release, Saweetie hit fans with sour news the arrival of her debut album – ‘Pretty B*tch Music’ – would be postponed.
Citing dissatisfaction with the tunes set to line the project, the rapstress (born Diamonte Harper) confirmed she was going back to the drawing board to revamp the LP.
Though previously unsure of a new release date, Harper recently took to our friends at KIIS FM to not only confirm ‘PBM’ will still hit digital shelves this summer but its renewed tracklist may see some familiar names added.
Recently chatting it up with 102.7 KIIS FM resident DJ JoJo Wright (as seen above), Saweetie waxed honest about the decision behind pushing back ‘Pretty B*tch Music.’
“I thought it was done, but I was listening to it…and I think instinct and reaction doesn’t lie. There were some songs I thought were missing something, so I’m going back to make sure each song has its own personality,” she said at the 1:46 mark.
When quizzed on when she projected the set would be released, the 28-year-old surprised when she said she ‘knew for sure’ it would drop ‘some time this summer’ and that chatter around a supporting tour has already begun.
Part of the updated ‘personality’ of each song may include teased featured guests, including the likes of Cardi B and Tinashe. For the latter, Saweetie went on an all out praise fest over the ‘amazing’ singer.
“I remember seeing Tinashe perform [at SXSW] and the girl is singing, dancing, and sounding just like her record,” Saweetie beamed at the 7:13 mark. “I was like wow she’s amazing.”
When quizzed on if she’d ever discussed the possibility of collaborating with Sweet T, Harper confirmed she had but would not disclose if said collaboration ever came to fruition or would be included on ‘Pretty B*tch Music.’
She echoed this sentiment when asked about Cardi at the 10:28 mark, a statement sure to get tongues wagging for Saweetie fans (affectionately known as the #ICYGang) as she’s made headlines before for expressing a desire to work with the GRAMMY-winning ‘WAP’ rapper.
