(Editor’s Note: The San Francisco Bay Area band Journey performed at halftime during the National Football Conference championship game with the hometown San Francisco 49ers down by 17 against the Detroit Lions. The band played their hit song, Don’t Stop Believin, and the Niner fans took that advice to heart. They cheered the 49ers to a come-from-behind 34-31 victory over Detroit, propelling the team to the Super Bowl. That’s after two other Bay Area natives had already gotten into the act. Filipino American Saweetie and rapper P-Lo joined forces to release a new Niner anthem for the playoffs.)
“Whole team iced up dipped in that red and gold,” the song from Saweetie and P-Lo goes.
And now the Bay is afflicted with 49er fever, as a new hit Bay anthem has hit our music streaming platforms.
Saweetie and P-Lo have dropped the new 49ers hype song, Do it for the Bay to get the Bay
Area psyched up for the Niner’s roaring success in the playoffs.
“I love that we were able to collaborate and make something that’s so Bay-triotic, as P-Lo would
say,” Saweetie expresses in a Rolling Stones interview.
The whole song and video captures a Bay Area vibe, not just because both Saweetie and P-Lo are both natives, but they dripped up the artists with clothes from the flagship Levi’s brand which adorns the stadium the Niner’s call home.
The artists even paid homage to Bay Area legend E-40 as they opened their song with
beats from his Niner’s hype song Niners Gang which hit the soundwaves in 2019, according to the Inquire.
Watching the clips of the Niners killing it throughout the video with the sick new song will have
the Bay ready as they troop towards the Super Bowl.
Saweetie and P-Lo have done their hometowns proud, as a hype song is much needed to get their hometown fans riled up for the Niner’s success this year cuz they “do it for the gang, Niner gang.” as P-Lo raps.
