'Grown-Ish' Preview: Watch As Saweetie Makes Her Acting Debut As New Character Indigo

The Icy girl is on television!

Bay Area rapper Saweetie is making her acting debut in the second-half of grown-ish's third season as recording artist Indigo. She'll first appear in the midseason premiere.

In the premiere, Zoey (Yara Shahidi) is working with Jody Bada$$, styling him for a new music video with his protégé Indigo, played by rapper Saweetie. The rapper will appear as Indigo in multiple episodes.

"I think Indigo is just a little bit of a b*tch," Saweetie told Entertainment Weekly. She means well, but just sometimes she says the wrong things. My favorite thing about [playing] Indigo was when both her and Yara were on the same page and having a good time. You can just see the love and excitement that Indigo has for [Zoey]. I think the dynamic is like a cool, bossy, sometimes mean big sister to Yara. She loves her, but she just has a hard time showing you."

The episode premieres on Jan. 21.
