Saweetie has released her new tune, “Icy Chain,” in advance of her upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live.
The lighthearted, freewheeling anthem was released as an early gift on digital platforms yesterday (November 19), ahead of the rapper’s live performance on the show this weekend.
Dr Luke, Rocco Did It Again!, and Lil Aaron produced ‘Icy Chain.’ After January’s Doja Cat collaboration ‘Best Friend’ and 2020 single ‘Tap In,’ this is Saweetie’s third collaboration with Dr Luke. Kesha and the producer are currently involved in a legal fight.
Saweetie’s latest song arrives as she continues to work on her long-awaited first album, ‘Pretty Bitch Music.’ Listen to it in the player below.
Saweetie uploaded a rehearsal video on Instagram before the single’s release, showcasing the rapper and her dancers rehearsing for SNL while the music plays in the background.
Saweetie disclosed to Vulture in July that her partnership with Dr Luke – real name Lukasz Gottwald – is the result of a contractual “bundle contract,” which explains why their work covers many projects. She firstly said in an interview that she was unaware of the charges when she agreed to work with him.
“It was a great offer when I was put in the position to work with him,” she explained. “That music had been in my possession for nearly two years. So, what are your thoughts? Do I risk my artistry by releasing them, or do I keep them in the vault?”
“Hopefully, we don’t get ourselves into any contentious situations in the future,” she said when asked if she would work with Gottwald again.
On Friday, Saweetie released two new tracks, one of which is titled “Icy Chain.” ‘Attitude,’ her contribution to ‘Bruised (Soundtrack From and Inspired by the Netflix Film),’ was released alongside the album, which was curated by Cardi B and Halle Barry, the film’s lead star.
