On Sunday (25 July) DaBaby said some homophobic comments while addressing the crowd during his Rolling Loud Miami performance. One of the controversial remarks saw him tell the crowd, "If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS… put your cellphone light up. Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone light up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone light up."

After trying to defend his comments (which ended up just making the situation worse), Dua Lipa, who collaborated with DaBaby on "Levitating", has since responded to his homophobic comments via Instagram, writing, "I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby's comments. I really don't recognise this as the person I worked with."

She added, "I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS."

Soon after, DaBaby shared his own apology on Twitter, writing, "Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies. But the LGBT community... I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business."

Last night (27 July) Victoria Monét replied to Dua Lipa's statement, tweeting that she's "totally available" if Dua Lipa wants to replace DaBaby's verse on "Levitating".

Yesterday (27 July) Dua Lipa shared a teaser clip of the upcoming music video for her recent Pop Smoke collaboration "Demeanor".
