Twitter speculates that Tinashe was “the blueprint” for Saweetie

Some recent photos of Saweetie have prompted Twitter users to claim that Tinashe may have inspired her.

Saweetie serves up some Tinashe vibes

It all started when the “ICY GRL” rapper uploaded a series of photos to promote her EP THE SINGLE LIFE.

While Saweetie’s uploads did what they were supposed to do, they also inadvertently sparked discussion about how similar the aesthetic was to the cover of Tinashe’s Songs for You album.

Some proclaimed that Saweetie was clearly in her “Tinashe era.”

Fans also pointed out that alongside Saweetie, other pop artists like Ice Spice and ChlΓΆe Bailey seem to have taken inspiration from the “2 On” singer. In fact, one user went so far as to gift Tinashe her flowers, calling them “the blueprint.”

However, others humorously attributed the trend to other trailblazers.

Not really, it’s Kim’s influence and not Tinashe’s 😭 https://t.co/mPVb1tVpVJ

Finally, there were others who completely ignored the comparisons and simply expressed that they wanted to see the artists collaborate.

Tinashe and Saweetie are booked and busy

Whether you think Saweetie is channeling her inner Tinashe or curating her own vibe, one thing is clear: she’s on her grind!

The West Coast rapper sparked some controversy again after he appeared to refer to Lil Baby and Quavo on a new track called “DON’T SAY NOTHIN’.”

Saweetie also says she’s focused on her growth right now.

I appreciate the love and support while focusing on my growth as a person, woman and artistπŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½ . Thank you for always believing in me through the ups and downs!!! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— @warnerrecords ❄️

As for Tinashe, she just recently celebrated the 3 year anniversary of Songs for You, the project that people believe inspired Saweetie’s recent photoshoot.

Tinashe also recently caused a stir in the online K-pop (Korean pop) community when she revealed that she would “love to” collaborate with NCT 127, a popular group within the genre.

What do you think of the Tinashe vs Saweetie comparisons? Would you also like them to join forces in the future to work together on a project?
