|The multi-Platinum trendsetter Saweetie’s current club-ready banger ‘Best Friend’ is shaping her to be her biggest UK hit to date. The track has so far peaked at #35 on the Official Charts with a global tally of over 100 million streams, and its profile has been amplified by playlists at Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss Fresh and Capital Xtra. Already featuring Doja Cat, the track is now boosted by a remix which adds another star name in the shape of Stefflon Don. Listen HERE.|
‘Best Friend’ was already a boisterous celebration of female success and independence given Saweetie and Doja Cat’s razor sharp bars, but Stefflon Don elevates the duo into an undeniable triple-threat with two fiery new verses. She brings a UK flavour infused with some rambunctious dancehall flair, making the track a declaration of an empowering friendship that no-one’s going to mess with.
Saweetie says, “My UK fans are so important, I wanted to give them a special treat with my Best Friend Stefflon Don. I can’t wait for everything to open back up so I can perform this remix for my UK Icy Gang!”
Stefflon Don adds, “Saweetie is always killing it with her music and I’m so excited to be working alongside her for this remix, bringing some of my DON vibes to one of the biggest tracks of the year.”
‘Best Friend’ continues Saweetie’s streak of anthemic collaborations and social domination. Last summer she dropped the thundering ‘Tap In’ remix with DaBaby, Post Malone and Jack Harlow, which resulted in her first UK Top 40 hit. That was followed by her Billboard-charting, Jhené Aiko-assisted single ‘Back to the Streets’. It continues a rise which has seen Saweetie become one of the most viral artists around, with 3.6 million fans at TikTok, 700 million views at YouTube, and 2 billion cumulative streams.
Flaunting nineties rhyme reverence, fashion-forward fire, and endless charisma, Saweetie – born Diamonté Harper – is building hype ahead of her forthcoming debut album ‘Pretty B*tch Music’ which will be released on ICY / Warner Records. With production from Timbaland, Danja, Lil John, Murda Beatz and more, ‘Pretty B*tch Music’ is the soundtrack to Saweetie‘s inspiring movement, which encourages all women to define their own “pretty.” She’s said before that her empowered definition of B*tch = Boss. Independent. Tough. CEO. Hyphy.
Stefflon Don rose to widespread fame when her Top 10 debut single ‘Hurtin Me’ (featuring French Montana) earned a colossal 2.3 billion streams and 444 million views, contributing to a career total that stands at 5.8 billion streams. Her list of collaborators have included Future, Lil Kim, Skepta, Mariah Carey, Sean Paul, Skepta and Charli XCX.
With musical influences pulled from the Caribbean and Africa, the artist’s ascent has been stratospheric since being recognized by the BBC’s Sound of 2017. Since then, the multi-lingual, multi-cultural Stefflon Don was the first British female rapper ever to be featured in Rap Caviar and the XXL Freshman cover, while major honours have included winning Best Female at the MOBO Awards and Best New Artist at the NME Awards (where she appeared on the final cover of the print edition). Steff’s highly anticipated return to music in 2020 brought the hits ‘Move’ and ‘Can’t Let You Go’, which were both released to critical acclaim.
