Did DDG write a song about Halley Bailey?

Bailey and DDG’s relationship has been in the spotlight for quite some time, especially as the pair denied cheating rumors back in February 2023. After that, DDG released a song titled “Famous.”

The song wasn’t well received by fans of Bailey due to the lyrics that referred to her and The Little Mermaid co-star Jonah Hauer King. “I’m tryna figure out what we gon’ do / How we gon’ get to the top? / Filmin’ a movie now you kissing dudes,” the lyrics read.
