All it takes is for one second for content to spread on social media and on Friday, Dec. 4,Saweetie took to Twitter to share her frustration about Warner Records, claiming they released her latest single “Best Friends” featuring Doja Cat earlier than expected.
Saweetie writes, “I am extremely disappointed in my label WBR for prematurely releasing a single I was so excited about,” the 26-year-old wrote. “I feel disrespected. I’m hands on with ALL of my creative & had such a dope rollout for ‘best friends’. The thirst for clout & ishh is real & it overrides the artists’ art. The wrong version at that smh. Like wtf??? We put so much work into the visual & we shot for days for this super cinematic girl anthem. And for this to happen? Wow….”
The song has since been removed from all streaming platforms, but it does not take away from it being put out before it was supposed to.
The song “Best Friends” will be the third single from Saweetie’s highly anticipated debut album, Pretty B—h Music, following “Pretty B—h Freestyle,” which was released back in July and “Back to the Streets” featuring Jhene Aiko in October. While Saweetie seemed upset about this, we are still excited to see what the final look and sound will be like and know it wont take away from her success.
