While promoting her new single “Closer” on Power 106, the Icy Queen was asked to share her dream collaboration, and she didn’t hesitate to name Rihanna.
“Of course. Top of my wish list,” she said of the pop icon.
However, a collaboration might not happen anytime soon since the mom-to-be has other priorities these days. “Honestly, well, she’s pregnant right now,” said Saweetie.
Saweetie, who starred in a 2018 Super Bowl ad for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, previously shared her admiration for Rih. “When I think of pioneers and Black girls, I think of Rihanna,” she told Complex. “I think she’s a great blueprint and she just shows us what’s possible and what we’re capable of.”
While she manifests a Rihanna collab, Saweetie recently teamed up with H.E.R. on “Closer” off her upcoming debut album Pretty Bitch Music.
“Honestly, I was nervous to send it to her,” she said of working with the Oscar-winning songstress. “I feel like that song, that sound is a different sound for the both of us. So the fact that we both made magic on a new sound that’s gonna evolve us as artists, it was a special thing for me.”
She plans to share a “more intimate, vulnerable side of Saweetie” on the album, which is still awaiting a release date.
