Saweetie has flipped Too Short’s Bay Area classic from 2006, “Blow the Whistle,” for her new song “Tap In.” The single, which also arrives alongside a new music video, is the second offering from her upcoming album Pretty B*tch Music, which is set to arrive later this year.

Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about the new cut, the Cali rapper noted that Too Short gave his blessing for her to use the sample. “I was like, ‘What if he doesn’t like it?’ But then he liked it, so I’m just excited,” she shared.” “I’m so happy that he loves it. I’m so excited for this record. I’ve been gone for a year, but I really had to focus on my artist development because that was something that I was struggling with.”

Pretty B*tch Music follows 2019’s Icy EP, with Saweetie noting that the usage of “b*tch” in the title as an acronym: Boss, Independent, Tough, CEO, Hyphy. She notes that the inspiration behind the name came from 2Pac’s “Thug Life” motto, which stood for “The Hate U Give Little Infants F*cks Everyone.”
