Saweetie graces the cover of Allure Magazine's March 2024 issue, exuding radiance in a captivating photo shoot.

But alongside the glamour, the rapper dives deep in a refreshingly candid interview.

Addressing the elephant in the room, Saweetie delves into the prolonged wait for her debut album.

Despite tasting success with chart-toppers like ‘My Type’ and ‘Tap In,’ her LP, once dubbed ‘Pretty B*tch Music,’ remains unreleased.

The 30-year-old artist lays bare her reasons for the delay, pointing to a change in management. "I just feel like nobody was caring about my music," she shares.

"To me, music is sacred. It’s coming from your spirit. You can’t just go finish an album in a week. That’s why it’s taking me so long. That’s why I haven’t dropped an album yet."

Acknowledging the weight of criticism she's faced, Saweetie admits to moments of insecurity. "We were constantly criticized for every drop," she reflects. "I was just very insecure. I’m a confident woman, but I was a very insecure artist."

She opens up about her past performances, revealing the pressure she put on herself to excel in multiple disciplines simultaneously.

"I always bite off more than I can chew," she confesses. "I had to push myself. I was trying to dance, rap, and sing at the same time. And I was like, Hold on, girl. Pump the brakes."

Seeking growth, Saweetie embarked on a "work vacation," treating it as a performance boot camp. While acknowledging her areas of weakness, she embraces the journey of turning them into strengths.
