DDG is rapping about his insecurities and Halle Bailey fans are calling him out after hearing his latest single.
According to COMPLEX “famous” was released on Friday, and the 25-year-old wasted no time getting personal with his fans.
In the chorus, DDG appears to claim he hated falling in love and only asked for Bailey “to do the basic shit,” and that the “hardest thing I did was fall in love with a famous bitch.”
“I’m tryna figure out what we gon’ do/How we gon’ get to the top?/Filmin’ a movie now you kissing dudes/You know I love you a lot/I don’t give a fuck if that shit for promo/I don’t wanna see this shit no more,” DDG rapped on the track.
“Why is y’all holdin’ hands in the photo? You know I’m insecure, that’s a no-no/I keep comin’ back/Wanna leave you but I’m too attached,” DDG said, seemingly taking issue with Halle Bailey’s interactions with her Little Mermaid co-star Jonah Hauer-King.
“She was such a very good friend to me. I looked at her and I thought ‘You have so much weight on your shoulders, so much pressure and you’re carrying this film and you’re carrying it with such grace that I need to try to and aspire to that.’ So anytime I was feeling like a bit daunted, I looked up to her and she was being seamlessly effortless,” Hauer-King reportedly said of Bailey.
DDG goes even deeper into his insecurities by appearing to ask if the person in question is cheating on him.
“It’s a couple things about your job I wanna know (I do)/When you shoot your movie, do these niggas turn you on? (On)/When you leave the set, do y’all still text each other phone? (Phone)/Just because they filmin’ it, it don’t mean that it ain’t wrong.”
Fans of Bailey were disgusted by the record and came to the defense of the star of The Little Mermaid remake by hopping on social media to give DDG an earful about his insecurities with the relationship.
“DDG is a whole ass loser. Like an insecure small little man. The whole song is the nastiest thing he could’ve done to her. The misogyny and pure dismissal of Halle is overwhelming,” one person tweeted. Another wrote, “DDG can go. Halle has too big of a future ahead of her for foolery and insecurity.”
A third person wrote, “So DDG’s lyrics is proof that Halle needs to fucking move on and find a King this insecure fool writing all that shit putting his business out there for the whole world to see, he a fucking fool!!!! I wish a motherfucker would write some bullshit about me if I was famous!!!”
The relationship seemed to be going good between the two, at least pretty recently, as Bailey called DDG her Prince Charming, saying, “Yeah. I would say that” in an interview with People back in May.
Watch ‘Prince Charming’s’ video below:

DDG has done so many things to sabotage Halles career, especially during the Little Mermaid release. I knew he had deep, evil intentions when he leaked that video of Halle cursing. And it’s not to say that she can’t curse or doesn’t curse, but why put that video out there..

I love me some Halle and I want to see so much for her, but DDG is making it increasingly hard to believe that he fits into that picture with these embarrassing antics. It’s ‘The Little Mermaid’.. you didn’t know she kisses the prince? pic.twitter.com/Eh8iGm25vC

This man is determined to ruin Halle's film career. He is a deeply insecure loser. Halle needs to leave this man NOW. https://t.co/j3wOvm53Yi

Being so insecure about your girlfriend's career that you rap: "Gotta be payin' good 'cause you keep doin' it/I might just tweet somethin' just to *RUIN* it" is nasty work.
Halle deserves WAY better than this. I hope she knows it. https://t.co/o2ZvUDShKU

I know we love to joke but its scary the hold DDG has on Halle. He openly says he wants to ruin her career, and abuses his platform to do it, and she hasn’t left him. Theres no saving her.
