Saweetie feels ‘disrespected’ as she slams her label for dropping Doja Cat collab prematurely: ‘The thirst for clout & $ is real’

Saweetie is hard at work on her debut album Pretty B**** Music, which is expected to drop in the new year.

But the BET Award nominee is not willing to compromise when it comes to executing her vision on her terms.

She felt ‘disrespected’ as she took to social media Thursday, slamming her label Warner Records for prematurely dropping Best Friends, her collab with Doja Cat, on Apple Music.

The 26-year-old wrote on Twitter: ‘I am extremely disappointed in my label WBR for prematurely releasing a single I was so excited about. 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,’ she continued, following up in another tweet: ‘The wrong version at that smh. Like wtf???’ 

She stressed the hard work that went into the track, writing: ‘We put so much work into the visual & we shot for days for this super cinematic girl anthem. And for this to happen? wow….’

Saweetie was met with support from her 1million followers, to whom she thanked: ‘Icy gang always dealing with the bs with me no matter what it means so much. I LOVE y’all. I’m bout to fix this nail & go to sleep. Goodnight.’

Starting a movement: She's been hyping up her fans for the upcoming release of Pretty B**** Music, which is also a movement she's pioneering: 'We should not all be looking alike but on social media a lot of people are starting to look alike.

‘I love you so much baby. I will always support you through thick and thin. You helped me get out of my depression stage,’ one fan wrote, as she responded: ‘wow this means so much thank you girl.’

The Tap In artist told Hypebae back in July: ‘The “Pretty B****” movement came about when I started the “pretty girl tap in” on Twitter. I really like that different types of boys and girls who look different were all tapping in because beauty is unique.
