Saweetie has changed the title of her upcoming debut solo album from Pretty B***h Music to The Single Life, and she says it is her “testimony as a single woman and what I’ve been through, the good and the bad.”
“I feel like a lot of my private love life has been publicized on the media and the internet, so it’s time for me to speak up,” the two-time Grammy nominee tells People. Saweetie was in a high-profile relationship with Quavo from Migos from 2018 to 2021, when they announced their breakup. They continue to be hot on social media as fans speculate that his new track “Messy” refers to the rumor that Saweetie was involved with Lil Baby.
Saweetie says that instead of commenting on social media, she will set the record straight on her album.
“I think the best way to respond to my perception is through the music, ’cause honestly, if you don’t know me personally, I’m not gonna have a personal conversation online,” the 29-year-old rapper says. “I’m gonna address a lot of things that haven’t publicized me right or wrong, but it’s all gonna be publicized in the message, in the music.”
Saweetie, born Diamonte Harper, won the 2022 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist following the success of her double-Platinum hit “Best Friend” featuring Doja Cat. Her album was originally scheduled to be released in 2021, but was pushed back. Now Saweetie says the project will drop before the end of the year.
In describing the album, she says it represents “me standing on being single. We need to be comfortable in just being single.” Saweetie adds that the songs are “all based off experience …. expect honesty, truth.”
