Saweetie and Doja Cat are best friend goals.

The two rappers solidified the first official bop of 2021 when they released their new collaborative track, "Best Friend," along with an over-the-top, ultra-glam music video. Featuring the two artists hyping each other up over a bouncy drum beat, the song declares affirmations like, "That's my best friend, she a real bad bitch / Drive her own car, she don't need no Lyft," and, "Beep beep, is that my bestie in a Tessie? / Fresh blowout, skin on tan, ooh, she ready."

The video begins with the two stars enjoying a tanning session that gets interrupted by a male admirer. Working together to shoo him off, they indulge in a bit of snarky, feminist banter with each other. From there, the video takes an avant-garde turn, which sees the rappers in a series of luxurious scenarios.

Also a high-fashion affair, the video showcases the two posing in front of a wall of candy-hued Birkin bags, as well as coordinating in matching custom Dapper Dan for Gucci pieces.

The music video's greatest moment, however, comes when the ladies take a custom, bedazzled Tesla for a test-drive through Los Angeles, with Doja at the steering wheel and Saweetie dancing on the car's hood. In another scene, Saweetie matches her outfit to the glittery ride: Wearing a chain-link halter top and embellished thigh-high boots, she and Doja pose in front of their new whip.
