Saweetie and Doja Cat just dropped a very fancy video for their song titled ‘Best Friend’ and it has got the Internet buzzing. Both the female emcees were super thrilled while promoting the official music video before dropping it on social media. However, Los Angeles-based hip-hop duo Ceraadi has now claimed that the concept of the ‘Best Friend’ video was taken from their song ‘BFF’, which was released in September 2020.

What is Ceraadi accusing Saweetie and Doja Cat of?

The group Ceraadi, which consists of sisters Emaza Gibson and Saiyr Gibson, posted a series of snapshots on their official Instagram account and tagged both Saweetie and Doja Cat in it. They tried to show the similarities between the concept of the video, indirectly accusing Saweetie and Doja of stealing the idea. In the Instagram post, the group also accused the female emcees of lifting up the lyrics.  


Ceraadi’s ‘BFF’ lyrics are, “When we ride, we be lit, lit / She know she bad, yeah she thick, thick / She gon’ do the time if I click, click," whereas on ‘Best Friend’ Saweetie raps, "That’s my best friend / She a real bad b***h / Drive her own car / She don’t need no Lyft." The news, of course, reached Saweetie and she did not hold back from leaving a sarcastic comment on Ceraadi’s Instagram post. She posted, "Omg we’ll totallyyyy add you in the credz! MY IDOLS."





How did fans react to the controversy?

A lot of social media users stormed to Twitter to speak on the matter. One user stated, “Lol I’m ngl Doja cat & Saweetie song do sound basically as ceraadi’s from what I’ve heard but Doja & Saweetie did it better.” Another expressed, “that new Doja Cat & Saweetie does not sound like that Ceraadi song. the only thing that’s similar is the video but so are hundreds of other videos.” One shared, “ceraadi really tried to say that @Saweetie and @DojaCat copied them when their video was created in their backyard and sounds like track 4 on kidz bop.”

One individual tweeted, “Am I the only one that likes @Ceraadi... I like @Saweetie and @DojaCat... cut the BS they all killed that sh*t! I do see some similarities to the song but they both did a great a job in music!!! #GirlPower #UnPopularOpinion #BestFriend #music” Another added, “@Saweetie @DojaCat I had to those girls been irrelevant and I got irritated with these little clout chasers ceraadi just pack it up your bff sh*t was trash and so is the rest of that sh*t y’all call music y’all are nobodies stay that way ps stay icy.” One said, “No one ever even heard that song (or any others of theirs) and now they trying to clout chase off. Free promo.”







The buzz around ‘Best Friend’

Saweetie’s 'Best Friend' also made headlines recently when she slammed her label Warner Bros Records for prematurely releasing the song on streaming services. She had said, “I am extremely disappointed in my label WBR for prematurely releasing a single I was so excited about. I feel disrespected. I’m hands-on with ALL of my creative & had such a dope rollout for “best friends”. The thirst for clout & $ is real & it overrides the artists’ art.”
