Saweetie still gets ‘jitters’ over releasing new songs

Saweetie still gets “the jitters” when she releases new music.

The 30-year-old rapper may have released dozens of singles and earned two Grammy award nominations but she is always worried about her tracks will be received, despite her popularity.

She told People magazine: “I get nervous with every release. I can’t help it.

“I get the jitters, I can’t sleep at night and I just feel like I’m sharing such an intimate piece of me because it is created in the studio, and then you eventually share it out into the world.”

Saweetie feels “really grateful” that her latest single ‘Nani’ was so well received.

She said: “This is the first time where I feel like there was just a consensus of it being a good song.

“I didn’t really have to do much fighting online, if you know what I mean. Even the haters was congratulating me, the back-handed compliments… They just have to give credit where credit’s due.

“It was just a great moment. I feel like all artists can appreciate a moment where their art is well received.”

The ‘Best Friend’ hitmaker – whose real name is Diamonte Harper – is now looking ahead to her next batch of music, which she teased will feature “a lot more singing”.

She explained: “There’s songs where there’s a lot of bars straight through. There’s songs where I’m a little bit more vulnerable about certain things that may have happened to me. I just feel like with every song, you get to know me better, and I’m really excited to share that with my fans.”

But Saweetie is in no rush to release her long-delayed debut album, ‘Pretty B.I.T.C.H. Music’, which was first scheduled for release three years ago.

She said: “That first album sets the tone for your career. I’ve really taken my time with this piece of art because it is delicate, it’s sensitive and it means a lot to me.

“I think it is our duty [as artists] to take this art serious.

“Not a lot of people are given this platform. I’m really just grateful to even have the opportunity to make a name for myself that’s recognised globally.

“I still have a lot of work to do, but being that I have so much time to sit with myself and learn myself as a human, as a woman, as a artist, I just feel like I’m ready to share those stories. I have a lot of stories to tell.”
