In Conversation with Saweetie

AS Program Board Presents… In Conversation With Saweetie on Friday July 17th, 2020 at 7 PM PST.
This event is free and closed to UCSB students.

San Francisco Bay Area born rapper Diamonté Harper, better known as Saweetie, has quickly risen to the top of the music scene. With her 2017 debut single, “ICY GRL” going RIAA platinum and the music video currently sitting at over 100 million views, it’s safe to say that Saweetie is not the one to be slept on.
Garnering praise from Vibe Magazine, XXL Mag, and MTV UK as a 2018 artist to watch, the rapper, songwriter, actress, and designer started her career turning heads left and right. But, the USC grad was just heating up with “ICY GRL”. Her 2019 single “My Type” also went double platinum, and the video skyrocketed to 88 million views in less than a year.
A woman of many talents, Saweetie has collaborated with heavy hitters in the music industry such as Kehlani, City Girls, Jhené Aiko, Rich the Kid and G-Eazy, as well as fashion and beauty giants like Morphe and PrettyLittleThing. With the video for her latest single “Tap In” racking up a quarter of a million views in less than 24 hours, it’s clear this “ICY GRL” shows no signs of cooling down.
