Saweetie has just dropped her new mixtape, Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1, and it's a reminder of how hard Saweetie's lyrics hit. The mixtape, which features Risky, a collaboration with Drakeo The Ruler, is a great way to mark your independence, and it'll inspire you to live it up in 2021.
To celebrate the mixtape's release, we've taken a look at some of our favourite Saweetie bars. They're full of wisdom, and full of charm - but most of all, they'll make you feel like a boss.
ICY GRL - "You beefing with my enemy does not make you a friend of me"
ICY GRL was the track that introduced Saweetie to the world, and she wasn't holding back. Originally freestyling over the beat from Khia's My Neck, My Back, Saweetie dropped a track full of quotable lyrics, but this bar about beef hits the hardest.
Writing about the bar on Genius, Saweetie says she doesn't have time for hidden motives when it comes to friendships. "You beefing with my enemy does not make you a friend of me. Like, “Girl I don’t know you so just because we have a mutual thing, doesn’t mean that we cool.”
Back To The Streets - "My ex used to act like he owned me/Ain't enough just to treat me like a trophy"
On Back To The Streets, Saweetie reminds everyone listening to remember the worth. The track, which features Jhené Aiko, is a track about removing the disrespectful men from your life.
Both Saweetie and Jhené show that they're in charge on the track, and if anyone wants to mess with them, you're getting kicked Back To The Streets. They know their worth, and they're not going to let anyone around them mess with that.
Anti - "Moving mean with my team, in the crib is where we be/Yeah, you barely see us out, cause we plotting up our scheme"
Released back in 2018, Anti was a warning shot from Saweetie. Since day one, she's been gunning for superstardom, and it's looking like her time is now.
Anti is a track about people trying to bring Saweetie down, and how that just bounces off her. She's got bigger fish to fry, and more important things to worry about. Haters don't even register on her radar.
Pissed - "Republicans on the plane muggin' on a bitch/Making white man money/So these white folks pissed"
The US Republican party aren't exactly known for their progressive views or their diverse membership base. On the track Pissed, Saweetie's taking aim that those around her who are jealous that she's making a name for herself and breaking down barriers that those around her have put up.
When she jumps on a plane, she's not afraid to flex, and it catches the attention of those around her. They're not too happy about her success, but they're going to have to learn to live with it. Saweetie's here for a good time and a long time.
Pretty & Rich - New VVS be caressing my neck/My diamonds HD, your shit VHS/Name Diamonté, so say that shit right
Pretty & Rich is Saweetie's reminder to the world that you better put some respect on her name. She's got diamonds for days, while the people that want to bring her down are lacking.
Saweetie's a fan of the finer things in life, and that includes some flashy jewelry. Most of all, though, learn how to pronounce her real name, Diamonté, or you're going to find yourself in some deep trouble.
Talkin' Bout - Bad lil' bitch from the Westside, ooh (Mhm)/Pretty and she rap like Left Eye
Saweetie drops a feature during Loui's Talkin' Bout, and she's here to steal the show. TLC are one of the biggest girl groups of all time, and part of their success is thanks to Lisa Lopes, aka Left Eye. Left Eye was a rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and dancer, and Saweetie's clearly inspired by her bars.
She's comparing herself to the legend on Talkin' Bout, as well as shouting out the area where she's from. She's bringing the heat on the track, and we love hearing Saweetie go in on a beat.

Best Friend - "Beep beep, is that my bestie in a Tessie?"
Saweetie's opening bar on the Doja Cat-featuring Best Friend has already become iconic, and we're looking forward to yelling it at the club when this song drops. It's such a good feeling when you see your best friend rocking up to your house in the car, ready to cause some mischief out on the town. Someone, please get Saweetie and Doja Cat a Tesla if they don't already have one. It's what they deserve.
