DaniLeigh Faces Backlash Over “Yellow Bone” Song! DaniLeigh recently shared a snippet of her new song called “Yellow Bone,” on social media and that didn’t go down well with her fans. In the song, she sings “yellow-bone, that’s what he wants,” with reference to the color of her skin. Some fans were of the idea the song was intended to throw shade towards DaBaby’s ex, MeMe, a Black woman of a deeper complexion. Thanks to DaniLeigh’s song the debate about colorism in the music industry has reared its ugly head once again!
Not so long ago, the colorism debate reached fever pitch after rapper Mulatto, allegedly said on Clubhouse that colorism wasn’t real. The rapper took to Twitter to deny the allegations, which made her trend for hours. “I WOULD NEVER SAY NO SHIT LIKE COLORISM DOESN’T EXIST!” she tweeted. “Please stop with the false narrative!” she wrote in a follow-up message.
In a now-deleted Instagram video, DaniLeigh shared a snippet of the song in which she is seen sitting in a chair having her hair done, dancing to the tune. Her caption read, “YELLOW BONE THATS WHAT HE WANT.”Power 106 LA shared a clip of the video before the singer took it down.
DaniLeigh attempted to address the hate she was receiving in a series of now deleted tweets.
“Congratulations y’all gotta another thing to say about me when u hate … 👍🏽 it’s all good .. only God can ‘cancel’ me… that sh*t don’t mean sh*t to me bc the people around me are the ones that know my heart and intention and real life … I’m sorry if I offended u .”
She went further to tell detractors, “Ima keep letting God bless me .. while y’all sit back and judge me && sit behind y’all lil phones and type sh*t about another woman .. y’all all HATERS” and “I’m Dominican… I’m Spanish , I’m black I’m white .. leave me alone .”
