Saweetie & P-Lo Team Up For San Fran 49ers Anthem: Look + Listen

On Friday (1.19,) North California grown Saweetie and P-Lo teamed up with their hometown NFL team, the San Fransisco 49ers, to release “Do It For the Bay.”

“You ain’t gotta ask who I do it for / Home team iced out / Dipped in that red and gold / Got a lot of sauce like it’s pasta / Pretty little face and I’m stacked like a roster,” Saweetie raps in the uptempo rallying call for Bay Area residents.

In a press released about the composition, the musician (born Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper) said “I’m excited to share our new 49ers single designed to hype up the team and The Faithful for this playoffs run.” “I want to thank the 49ers organization for this opportunity. Shout out to P-Lo for doing what he does. I love that we were able to collaborate and make something that’s so Bay-triotic, as P-Lo would say.”

Senior director of brand marketing for the San Francisco 49ers, Allie Dicken added, “We’re grateful to iconic Bay Area artists and 49ers Faithful, Saweetie and P-Lo, for creating a song that celebrates our team and gives The Faithful a new song for their game day soundtracks. We’re lucky to be based in a region that is thriving with talent, diversity, and innovation, and excited that Saweetie and P-Lo were able to capture those values in this new anthem for The Bay.”

Born Paolo Rodriguez, P-Lo weighed in on the collaboration by noting, “Big thanks to the 49ers for their commitment to bridging sports and Bay Area culture. I’ve been wanting to release music with Saweetie and with both of us being die-hard 49ers fans, this a great opportunity to come together and show our pride for The Bay.”
