‘The First Time’ With Saweetie

Rapper discusses the name of her new album Pretty Bitch Music, recording with Quavo, how she learned to freestyle rap

Saweetie appeared on Rolling Stone‘s The First Time to talk about her upcoming album Pretty Bitch Music and how it got its name.

“I remember I was like, ‘How do I put a title over all of these feelings that I’m feeling throughout my album?'” she recalled. “And I was like, ‘Well, I make people feel like bad bitches, like pretty girls, so why don’t I call it Pretty Bitch Music?’ I was like, ‘That’s just kind of out there, you know? Putting “bitch” on something?’ But I was like, ‘If I make it stand for something, it’ll make sense.’ So that’s why I say ‘bitch’ stands for boss, independent, tough, CEO — I want my fans to know that it’s empowering.”

The rapper also talked about her first time quitting a job, recording a song with Quavo, playing powder puff quarterback, and learning how to freestyle rap from her family.

“The first time I tried freestyle rapping was probably in a car full of my cousins,” she said. “When a song would come on, we’d all just take turns. Definitely when I was like six, seven or eight. Actually, with my dad — me and my dad would go back and forth all the time. He’s better than me.”
