In DaniLeigh’s newest interview, the singer speaks about her controversial song “Yellow Bone.”
A snippet of “Yellow Bone” was dropped on Instagram in January of 2021 and immediately faced backlash from fans accusing the singer of being a colorist and seemingly attacking DaBaby’s ex. She apologized initially for the snippet and she admits now that she “messed up.” The singer was recently asked if she knew that the song would be received badly.
“No. When I did drop the snippet and saw how everyone reacted, I was like, ‘I messed up,'” said the singer per HotNewHipHop. “I didn’t super realize it at that time and that’s why I responded like, defensive. But it was a horrible mistake. It was not a good moment, for sure, for me, and it was a hard time. In that time, like, a lot was going on in my life.”
“Me and Baby broke up, that happens, me and my family, I was pregnant, like, it was just all at once,” she added. “So, I was like, what is God trying to teach me right now ’cause it was definitely a learning lesson for me and I just want to say to everybody that I’m super sorry ’cause I—it was just a mistake. I’m a Dominican woman. I have family members that are dark-skinned, my daughter is a Black girl, like, it just was—to even speak on skin tone, like, I realize how messed up that is now.”
