Saweetie, is a rapper and songwriter from Hayward, California. After the success of her debut single, "Icy Grl", she was signed to Warner Bros. Records. She released her first major label EP, High Maintenance, in March 2018.

Saweetie began posting short raps on her Instagram account in 2016.

She first released the song on her SoundCloud in the summer of 2017 and later released a music video for it in October of the same year. The visual, which went viral on the Internet, would go on to accrue ten million views on YouTube as of March 2017.

To follow that up, Saweetie released in that same month a freestyle rap called "High Maintenance" accompanied by a short clip of herself rapping a verse to the song. It would go viral on Instagram and Twitter as well. In October 2017, she released a video for her song, "Focus", which samples DRAM's "Gilligan".

In January 2018, she was named Tidal's Artist of the Week and one of Pigeons & Planes' Best New Artists of the Month.

Records in a partnership with her own label, Icy Records.
