Diamonté Harper, known by Saweetie, is an American songwriter, rapper, actress and designer. Born in Santa Clara, she relocated to Sacramento, CA where she completed high school. She developed an interest for poetry which eventually led to her performing at open mic's. This passion would lead her on the path to pursue her love for music. Saweetie attended San Diego state then transferred to The University of Southern California where she would graduate in 2016. Saweetie's chance meeting with music industry veteran Max Gousse (Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Solange, YG, Tydollasign, DJ Mustard, B2k) led to an invite to record at Gousse's studios resulting in her debut single "Icy Grl" (Icy/Artistry) via Soundcloud. Saweetie released the Poster Child-directed video shortly thereafter, amassing 3.5mm UZworld plays in 3 weeks, while garnering organic praise from Vibe Magazine, XXL, HipHopDX, and MTV UK as the artist to watch in 2018.
