Saweetie has dived into the disco pop genre with her new song “Closer.” Featuring the sensual vocals of R&B singer H.E.R., the track arrives as Saweetie’s first release of the year, following last November’s “Icy Chain” collaboration with Tai’Aysha.

In the song, the two artists sing about craving a momentary feeling of closeness with a romantic partner. “I wanna fall in love for the weekend,” Saweetie says. “Three boyfriends, I don’t know where I’m sleeping.”

The cover art is a colorful image of Saweetie and H.E.R. ready to travel in flight attendant uniforms. A music video for the track – perhaps one set in the sky is forthcoming.

Out via Icy and Warner Records, “Closer” comes off of Saweetie’s debut album Pretty B*tch Music, slated for release sometime in 2022.
