When DaniLeigh dropped her single “Yellowbone,” social media had no problem letting her know they weren’t here for it. While initially defending her stance on “Yellowbone, it seems she may have had a change of heart.
A couple of hours after posting a clip from ‘The Breakfast Club’ where Charlamagne Da God and DJ Envy defended her song, “Yellobone,” DaniLeigh took to Instagram to address the issue and apologize. Saying she wasn’t a colorist and people misunderstood her, she wanted to make it clear that she didn’t mean to offend anyone, when making her song “Yellobone.”
In part, she stated, “I think it’s super important ‘cause I definitely feel super misunderstood. I think people twisted it like I was trying to bash another woman and her skin tone.”

“I never looked at my skin as a privilege,” she added, “I see brown skin women flaunt their skin in music all the time. Why can’t I flaunt mine?”
“I’m sorry I wasn’t sensitive to the topic, when I wrote my comment,” speaking about her song “Yellowbone.”
DaniLeigh continued, “It can be a personal thing to certain people ‘cause colorism is a real thing. But I’m not that. I’m not a colorist or a racist. I date a whole chocolate man. I have chocolate friends. Skin is not something I even see.”
“Because you don’t know me it’s like let me tell you guys what I meant by that. Hopefully you guys can watch it with an open heart and genuine mind. I’m sorry, again. I offended people who are truly offended. I am sorry.”
Are y’all here for the apology of her song “Yellowbone,” Roomies?
