The SNL gig gave fans another taste of Saweetie’s long-awaited debut album, Pretty Bitch Music. The LP was originally expected to drop over the summer, but was pushed back after Saweetie decided to make some changes.

PBM is on the way,” Saweetie told Big Tigger during a BET Awards press junket in June. “It was supposed to come out this month, but I was really living with it and one of my goals is for people to really feel something with every song so I had to go back and reconstruct some songs.”

Saweetie and her team have yet to announce an official PBM release date, but several outlets report it will likely arrive sometime next year.
