"This album needs to have feelings, it needs to have soul, it needs to have spirit," the rapper tells Billboard on the BET Awards red carpet.
On Sunday's BET Awards red carpet, Saweetie was a vision in royal blue, rocking a sweeping, barely there Dolce & Gabbana gown. While the "Icy Grl" artist appeared calm and collected, she expressed her "surprise" at being nominated for best female hip hop artist at the show.
“Everything that happened this year, it was planned," Saweetie told Billboard. "But as far as the public receiving it, the accolades that come with it, that was a surprise.”
The hit-making raptress, accompanied on the red carpet by her father, Johnny Harper, gushed over her fellow nominees and noted her own room for growth. “I feel like I have a lot more to achieve, so it's just an honor to be in a pool of such innovative, bomb women.”
