Wait, There’s More

Baby and actress Raven Symone might be the next big hip-hop couple to look out for. The pair had social media’s full attention after recently linking up following a flirty Instagram Live session. The Internet erupted with footage of DB and Raven boo’d up together. The clip featured him hugging up on Symone while wearing a medical mask to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The prior night, clips went viral of the pair talking to each other on Instagram Live. Baby kept pushing to get more romantic with Symone courtesy of flirty wordplay.

“You’re not supposed to be this close to me,” Raven told DaBaby after he hugged her. “What me get corona because of this boy. [laughs] I’m coming right to you, cuz.”

DaBaby (real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk) and Raven-Symone are making headlines for having an entertaining Instagram Live conversation. The 28-year-old rapper was on his IG Live, when he invited his childhood crush, 34-year-old Raven-Symone. The two innocently flirted with one another. (the Jasmine BRAND)

Before You Go

In early April 2020, Baby blessed his fans with his new “Find My Way” music video premiere. The rap heavyweight shared some steamy on-screen time with his co-star and Internet personality B. Simone.

The single showcases DaBaby’s versatility as the artist shifts between his signature bass-filled flow and a raw melodic hook across the DJ Kid-produced beat. Accompanying the song is a 10-minute short, directed by Reel Goats. Starring both DaBaby and influencer, BSimone, the visual follows the pair as they attempt to secure finances for the rapper’s ailing grandmother, by any means necessary. After posing the ominous question, “Have you ever seen somebody turn into a monster for a good cause?” the film then briefly transitions to music video form. The suspenseful short showcases DaBaby’s acting skills and teases a sequel for fans who will inevitably be left wanting more. (Karen Civil)
