Spring may be on the horizon, but it’s icy today…
Critically acclaimed gold-certified rapper, entrepreneur, fashionista, songwriter and star Saweetie unveils her brand-new ICY EP today. Get it HERE via ICY/Artistry Records/Warner Bros. Records.
In tandem with the release, she uncovers the Christian Sesma-directed music video for her new single“Emotional” [feat. Quavo]. Underscored by spacious and sensitive production [Nova Wav], the track revolves between Quavo’s signature trap-croon and Saweetie’s nimble rhymes and intimate admissions such as, “I’m emotional. You know I can’t let you go, I’m emotional.” The music video places a spotlight on this love story with a sexy and sultry cinematic display. Watch it HERE. “Emotional” illuminates her marked progression as does the EP in its entirety.
“‘Emotional’ shows more of a vulnerable side of me compared to braggadocios tracks like ‘ICY GIRL’ and ‘Pissed’,” she states. “It’s been a year since my last project, so I’m excited for my supporters to witness my growth. Music is special because it creates a nostalgic moment in time, and I’m ready to create that next season with my listeners.”
Manager and Co-Executive Producer Max Gousse also added, “Saweetie really took her time on this EP and was hands-on in every way from song selection to the mixes to the music video concepts. Her growth as an artist and a businesswoman have been amazing. Her fans are in for a real treat.”
The ICY EP features production by multiplatinum producers Hit-Boy, Murda Beatz andLondon On Da Track in addition to Nova Wav and Cronkite. It kicks off with the spitfire swagger and bold bravado of “Trick”before turning on a dime into the duet banger “Tip Toes” [feat. Quavo]. Meanwhile, “Hot Boy” turns up the heat to seductive temperatures as the finale “1 of 1” perfectly describes the MC and her place in the game. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Saweetie continues to stun at every turn. Recently, she launched her own ICY jewelry collection in addition to gracing the covers of Paper (digital),
MOD andWonderland. Not to mention, her “ICY GRL” single continues to dominate with 200 million streams while her collaboration with London On Da Track “Up Now” [feat. G-Eazy and Rich The Kid] closes in on 30 million streams. Next up, she hits the stages at all three U.S. Rolling Loud festivals, Cardi B’s headlining tour, Wireless Fest and her very own multi-night Las Vegas residency.
