Saweetie Says She's 'Disappointed' at Her Label For Releasing Doja Cat Collaboration 'Prematurely'

Saweetie lashed out at her label early Friday morning (Dec. 4), claiming that Warner Records released her Doja Cat collab "Best Friend" against her wishes.

"I am extremely disappointed in my label WBR for prematurely releasing a single I was so excited about," the MC tweeted about the track. "I feel disrespected. I’m hands on with ALL of my creative & had such a dope rollout for “best friends”. The thirst for clout & $ is real & it overrides the artists’ art."

A spokesperson for Warner Records -- which had sent out an early link of the song to journalists that confirmed a Dec. 4 release date -- had not responded to requests for comment at press time.

Additionally, the song does not appear to be available on streaming services.

A short time later, Saweetie said her disappointment was compounded when she realized the version that was released wasn't even the right one. "The wrong version at that smh. Like wtf???" she wrote, adding, "We put so much work into the visual & we shot for days for this super cinematic girl anthem. And for this to happen? wow...."
