New music video for the My Type/Claws Remix drops today in anticipation of the Claws season three premiere on Sunday, June 9 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)
Latest single highlights Claws themes including female empowerment, sisterhood, boss ladies taking charge and – of course – nails
Claws was one of only two dramas on cable to be in the top 10 among both 18-49 and AFAM 18-49
LOS ANGELES, JUNE 3, 2019 – Critically acclaimed gold-certified rapper, entrepreneur, fashionista, songwriter and star Saweetie knows her type – and it’s none other than TNT’s Claws.
Partnering with the network, Saweetie is unveiling today a Claws-themed remixed version of her hot single, “My Type,” from her chart-topping EP, ICY (ICY/Artistry Records/Warner Records), along with a new Claws music video. Highlighting show themes such as female empowerment and being a boss, the collaboration sets the world of Claws to a song and embodies the series’ strong female characters.
"Icy Grls are fierce and fearless, bossed up beauties, so partnering with TNT for a Claws-themed remix of ‘My Type’ was a natural fit, and so much fun!” said Saweetie.
Saweetie continues to stun at every turn. Recently, she launched her own ICY jewelry collection in addition to gracing the covers of Paper (digital), MOD and Wonderland. Not to mention, her "ICY GRL" single continues to dominate with 200 million streams and counting, while her collaboration with London On Da Track “Up Now” (feat. G- Eazy and Rich The Kid) has over 30 million streams. Next up, she hits the stages at all three U.S. Rolling Loud festivals, Cardi B's headlining tour, Wireless Fest, Lil Weezyana and her very own multi-night Las Vegas residency.
