Saweetie “Pissed” Music Video

Today at 12p PST, Saweetie unveils the music video for her red-hot new single “Pissed” (produced by Cronkite). Watch it HERE.

Get “Pissed” HERE via ICY/Artistry Records/Warner Bros. Records

Developing a reputation for larger-than-life visuals, hip-hop’s hottest new leading lady once again delivers a big screen-worthy clip. Saweetie spares no detractors with one razor sharp rhyme after another as she wilds out on-screen, displaying the stunning and sexy confidence that squarely positioned her as 2018’s fastest rising star.

Expect her to make history in the new year!

“Pissed” followed up her London On Da Track collaboration, “Up Now” [feat. G-Eazy & Rich The Kid]. Meanwhile, it earned looks from Complex, Rap-Up, and more. Saweetie never stops making headlines. She recently made her major tour debut with Drake and Migos. In addition, she lent her lyrical flow to remixes for pop superstar Dua Lipa’s “IDGAF” and Anne Marie’s global hit “2002.”

Flaunting nineties rhyme reverence, fashion-forward fire, and endless charisma, SAWEETIE—born Diamonté Harper—can go bar-for-bar with the best of ‘em, and fans and critics immediately recognized and responded to that. Within six months, she cracked 400 million cumulative streams, garnered a gold plaque, and earned the praise of Billboard, Fader, and Noisey as Los Angeles Times pegged her as “one to watch this year.” Drawing on a passion for poetry and numerous years of rapping in the car, she turned her love for words into vivid verses during 2018 on the High Maintenance EP.

Born in Santa Clara of African-American and Chinese-Filipino descent and raised in Sacramento, the California native went from MVP status as a high school volleyball champ to becoming a shining student at USC. Initially, she deferred her rap dreams to achieve a degree in Communications before being discovered at a Downtown Los Angeles Puma event by current manager Max Gousse [Beyoncé, YG, Ty Dolla $ign]. At Artistry Studios, they produced her 2017 knockout viral smash “ICY GRL.” Driven by a bulletproof flow and one clever line after another, it racked up 300 million combined streams between the original and Kehlani remix, achieved a gold certification from the RIAA, and soared to #1 on Musical.ly. She also earned the early endorsement of gatekeepers such as Vibe, XXL, HipHopDX, and MTV. Touting a new partnership with Warner Bros. Records and Artistry Records for her label Icy, she’s rewriting the rule book and breaking the stereotype of the female emcee. Armed with tracks like “B.A.N.” and “Good Good,” High Maintenance features production courtesy of Zaytoven, Hassan, Saweetie, Cash Money AP, and Gousse.

TRIPPIE REDD’S NEW ALBUM IS THE MOST STREAMED ALBUM

Multi-platinum Canton, OH, rapper and singer Trippie Redd A Love Letter To You 3 enters the Billboard Top 200 at number 3 and holds the title of the most streamed album in America. Get it HERE. The album includes features from Juice Wrld, Emani 22, NBA YoungBoy, and Nel-Denarro.
This marks Trippie’s second Top 5 in 3 months on Billboards Mainstream Top 200 Charts. Back in August, Redd’s Life’s A Trip LP entered #4 on the Billboard 200.
Of the 84K total sales on ALLTY3, 72,000 units were SEA units which translates to 108.8 million on-demand audio streams. That gives Trippie the most streamed album in America this week. It places him on the charts right below Imagine Dragons debut and right above the late Lil Peep’s posthumous debut at #4, with A Star Is Born soundtrack rounding out the charts at #5.
“I really don’t think y’all understand how f*ckn amazing you guys are I mean honestly we just kinda showed our ass going this crazy no promo at all thank you my 1400/800 brothers sisters,” wrote the 19-year-old performer on Instagram.
The news comes fresh off the release of his video for Topanga and his debut studio album, Life’s a Trip, of which XXL wrote Life’s a Trip succeeds by placing Redd’s narrative at its core and leaning into the inventive melodies that initially put the young rapper on the map. Lyrically, Trippie is direct. Vocally, his balance between restrained and bombastic delivery is unmatched. Watch his cultist music video for Topanga HERE. Trippie recently graced the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor Hollywood stage with a performance of Topanga Watch it HERE. He also performed his other hit song Taking A Walk Watch it HERE.
In addition to generating nearly 2 billion streams, Trippie was named Spotify Rise Artist, Artist to Watch by Rolling Stone, and landed on the cover of the 2018 XXL Freshman Class. Singing real shit that people all over the world can relate to timeless, says Trippie. Timeless music literally is a concept I can live on.
Trippie Redd’s singles love scars and Dark Night Dummo [feat. Travis Scott] are RIAA certified platinum. His songs Poles 1469 and Bust DownÉd are certified gold. He has collaborated with everyone from Travis Scott, Diplo, Julia Michaels, Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M., Alison Wonderland, 88 Rising and Rich The Kid.
Trippie’s breakout mixtapes A Love Letter To You and A Love Letter To You 2. hit the stratosphere in 2017. Praised for his lyrics as well as his style, he chronicles love and heartbreak from the streets and experience. Trippie became serious upon becoming a rapper upon encouragement from his late older brother. Trippie Redd would later get a scar tattoo on his face to honor him after he died in a road accident in 2014 — pushing Trippie to work harder on his music. He grew up being raised by his single-parent mother (his father was incarcerated since Trippie’s birth). Life’s A Trip continues to share Trippie’s eccentrically-wild world as seen through Trippie’s eyes. He finds influences from Gorillaz, Erykah Badu, Drake, Marilyn Manson, Tupac, Nirvana, and Lil Wayne (among others).
