Interesting facts and trivia about My Type. By Songfacts®.

Saweetie (birth name Diamonté Harper) is an American rapper, singer and songwriter born in Santa Clara, California, to a Filipino-Chinese mother and an African-American father. Diamonté was close to her grandmother, who gave her the nickname Saweetie; she later chose it as her stage name. Saweetie drew inspiration from female rappers and posted short raps on Instagram. One of the clips featured her rapping over the beat from Khia's "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)," which would eventually turn into her debut single, "Icy Grl." That song's Poster Child-directed music video went viral on social media and led to a contract with Warner Bros. Records in partnership with Artistry Worldwide and her own label, Icy Records.

This summer anthem finds Saweetie describing the type of man she goes for. Basically her ideal guy is a wealthy ("eight-figure") black man who is well-endowed.

Saweetie wrote the song with Atlanta producer London On Da Track, whose other credits include Rich Gang's "Lifestyle," Drake's "Sneakin," and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's "Swervin." His production features a prominent sample of Petey Pablo's classic 2004 hit, "Freek-A-Leek."
