Saweetie Left Her Filipino Mother Upset With Offensive Lyrics in Native Language

The 'Tap In' hitmaker says her Chinese-Filipino mother is not impressed by the foul-mouthed lyrics written in Tagalog on her upcoming debut studio album.

AceShowbiz - Hip-hop star Saweetie has left her Chinese-Filipino mother a little disappointed by spitting insults in Tagalog on her debut album.

The "Tap In" hitmaker shows off her linguistic skills on the upcoming "Pretty B**ch Music", but the sassy lyrics she rhymes in her mum's native language on the project came as a shock to her conservative parent.

"I do talk some s**t in Tagalog," Saweetie told Billboard. "My mum was really against it. My Asian side, they're very traditional - they were immigrants. So it's like, their culture's a little bit more reserved. So, she was just like, 'Girl, I can't believe you just said that!' "

Saweetie will also be experimenting with Latin music on the forthcoming album after teasing a track with two top artists.

"It's just one of those records where the beat introduces the song before the lyrics even come on," she shared. "I'm just really excited 'cause it's just a lot of fun!"

"They've worked hard to get to where they're at, so the fact that I have them on there is just amazing," she added of her mystery collaborators - one male and one female."

Fans have yet to receive a definitive release date for "Pretty B**ch Music", which Saweetie delayed from its June (21) launch to ensure the project was perfect, but she assures devotees, "It's coming soon!"

While Saweetie worked with Dr. Luke on hit songs "Tap In" and "Best Friend", she insisted she had no further plan to work with the producer as he continued to be embroiled in a legal feud with Ke$ha.
