Apparently, Saweetie was pissed when her label, Warner, dropped her “Best Friend” single onto Apple, Spotify, etc a month early. She released a statement to say:
“I am extremely disappointed in my label WBR for prematurely releasing a single I was so excited about,” she said in a statement. “I feel disrespected. I’m hands on with ALL of my creative & had such a dope rollout for ‘best friends’. The thirst for clout & $ is real & it overrides the artists’ art.”
But all’s well that ends well. The song has received a proper release now, and it’s a banger with Saweetie and the equally glorious Doja Cat trading lines and putting men in their place for their toxic masculinity.
“That’s my best friend, she a real bad b&*ch / Drive her own car, she don’t need no Lyft,” raps Sweetie. Doja Cat responds, “If she ride for me, she don’t need a key.”
“Best Friend” is out now.
