The wait for Saweetie’s debut album could be over shortly. The budding Bay Area rapper-mogul was in New York for the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards, where she gave a red carpet interview hinting that her new music would be released around the holiday season. When asked about meeting Cher, to which she attributed the most recent delay, she remained tight-lipped, but did hint at a possible release date for their collaboration.
While waiting for the album to be released, Saweetie provided plenty of content and projects for her fans to enjoy. She started the second season of her Icy University web series in August, interviewing Chloe Bailey ahead of her debut solo album. Saweetie also created her own meal with McDonald’s, replete with “Saweetie N Sour” sauce. Though the album has been delayed several times, including to allow Saweetie to hone her performing talents, she confirmed earlier this summer that it is finally finished, implying that a firm release date is on the way.
