The 2021 MTV EMAs Host is... Saweetie!

Cali native Saweetie will host and perform for the Nov. 15th show. Get ready — the Icy Gang is going global! Saweetie will host the upcoming 2021 star-studded show in Budapest, Hungary on Monday, 15th November, 2021 at 8pm (SG/MY/PH). The triple-threat rapper/actress/entrepreneur will be lending her talents to not only host, but also perform two songs, “Best Friend” and “Back To The Streets,” from her debut album Pretty Bitch Music. “Anything can happen at the MTV EMAs,” said Saweetie, who is also nominated for “Best New” with Olivia Rodrigo, Giveon, Rauw Alejandro, Griff and The Kid LAROI. “The EMAs celebrate the universal language of music for the whole world to see and I can’t wait to get out there and perform because I’ve got some surprises of my own!.” A California girl, Diamonté Harper (aka Saweetie) has been rising through the charts — and hearts of her fans — with her music, business savvy and philanthropy. She has accrued over 100 million cumulative streams, gone RIAA platinum with her song “ICY GRL” and also double-platinum with her song “My Type.” She’s just as passionate about performing as she is about giving back. Her Icy Baby Foundation offers resources for “Black, Brown, and other underserved students and family members” by focusing on topics such as entrepreneurship and coding (Icy Baby Foundation). The show will be broadcast live in 180 countries and feature a slew of top performances by Maluma, Kim Petras and Måneskin, so this definitely will be a night you don’t want to miss! Voting is now open at http://www.mtvema.com until November 10th at 11:59pm CET.
