Multi-platinum sensation and pop-rap party-starter Saweetie continues her hot streak today with the release of her steamy Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 EP on ICY/Warner Records. Each of the set’s 7 tracks feels like a party, welcoming a host of electric guests including L.A. rap innovator Drakeo the Ruler and rising Sacramento vocalist Kendra Jae. On every track, including “Risky” with Drakeo, Saweetie’s charisma and confidence are on full display, reminding us why she’s one of rap’s most exciting young superstars. Listen HERE.
Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 shows off several sounds and styles. There are rippling, minimal club anthems like “Risky,” on which she casually flexes and preaches the joys of living recklessly. There are lush, lusty tracks like “Backseat,” which finds Saweetie and Lourdie embracing the magnetism of desire. Saweetie also uses the EP as a chance to flex her taste, hopping on already-hot tracks like Bbyafricka’s “Baby Mama Coochie” and Loui’s infectious TikTok hit “Talkin’ Bout.” Throughout the EP, she weaves together winding bars and hilarious punchlines, demonstrating that she’s become not only one of music’s most engaging personalities, but a gifted stylist as well. There are few rappers working with as much range.
The video for “Risky” is as spicy as the song. Saweetie and Drakeo The Ruler get down and dirty in the visual directed by both Saweetie and FakeDell. Watch HERE.
