Last week, Saweetie released a brand-new single entitled “Icy Chain” and slayed her debut performance of it on SNL. People magazine said “Saweetie rocked the Saturday Night Live stage,” and Pop Sugar called her performance “electric!”
“Icy Chain” has received widespread critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, Vulture raved, “The extremely twerkable track relies on Saweetie being in the fro-zone – rapping for most of the just-under-two-minute song,” and went on to add, “Only Mariah Carey is more on-brand this time of year.”
Meanwhile, The FADER noted, “On ‘Icy Chain,’ she raps confidently.” Watch the SNL performance HERE and listen to “Icy Chain” HERE She also recently contributed “Get It Girl” to Insecure: Music From The HBO Original Series Season 5. Plus, she delivers the aptly titled “Attitude” on Bruised (Soundtrack From and Inspired By The Netflix Film).
