Saweetie was not expecting a Grammy nomination, so much so, that she slept through the announcements. She told People.com that she wasn’t awake when the news broke and was “shocked” when she found out.
She said, “It's my first nominations, so I'm just honored to be a part of the conversation.”
At 28, Saweetie is the only female rapper nominated for best new artist at the Grammys. Her song “Best Friend” with Doja Cat is also up for best rap song.
