Flaunting nineties rhyme reverence, fashion-forward fire and endless charisma, Saweetie—born Diamonté Harper—can go bar-for-bar with the best of ‘em, and fans and critics immediately recognized and responded to that. Within six months, she cracked 100 million cumulative streams, garnered a gold plaque and earned the praise of Billboard, The FADER and Noisey as Los Angeles Times pegged her as “one to watch this year.” Drawing on a passion for poetry and numerous years of rapping in the car, she turned her love for words into vivid verses during 2018 on the High Maintenance EP with her smash hit “ICY GRL” earning RIAA platinum certification. What’s more, 2019 saw the release of Saweetie’s ICY EP, spawning viral sensation “My Type,” which earned an RIAA gold certification, debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Pop Songs charts and hit #1 at Urban and Rhythmic Radio.
