"Me and London were just experimenting in the studio, because it's his and my song," Saweetie said on Beats 1 Wednesday when unveiling the new song. "I was doing, like, radio promo and first he sent me Rich's verse and then a day later he sent G-Eazy's and I'm just like 'What's happening? Like, how are you getting these verses?' But, you know, like, he obviously has a relationship with them. I absolutely love their verses, so I'm excited for everybody to hear what we cooked up."
For London, he saw a "sassiness and swagness" in Saweetie's early work that inspired him to reach out about collaborating. "I saw her pretty early," he said. "You know I visited her page, saw a few of her videos and went on YouTube and, you know, just did some of my research and I like the flow and her energy on tracks . . . It was just something that I liked and, you know, I caught on to it early."
"Up Now" will appear on Saweetie's debut album, due in November. A feature from arguably the most prolific featurer of 2018, Ty Dolla Sign, has also been confirmed.
