DaniLeigh Releases New Single “Dead to Me” While Moving Past DaBaby Drama

It’s life after dead to DaniLeigh

The 27-year-old Dominican American singer, who is attempting to move on from her turbulent relationship with ex-boyfriend DaBaby, has released the new single “Dead to Me” as she focuses on her music career.

DaniLeigh“You know you dead to me/ Never kept your word with what you said to me / You know you dead to me/ I ain’t got no more time for toxic energy,” she sings in the chorus.

In a moving new interview with iHeartRadio’s Angie Martinez that premiered on People, DaniLeigh — born Danielle Leigh Curiel — opened up about motherhood, DaBaby and “Dead to Me.” Most notably, she reflected on the Instagram Live she had with the “Rockstar” rapper in November, which she described as a “very bad time” in her life.

In the since-deleted video, the former couple were seen having a heated argument while DaniLeigh nursed their newborn daughter, who is now eight months old.

According to Rolling Stone, DaBaby and DaniLeigh exchanged insults, with the latter claiming that the rapper hadn’t been around since their daughter was born, and that he was now trying to make her leave his apartment.

The next day, DaBaby went on Instagram Live again, where the duo continued to argue about their relationship. According to Rolling Stone and local CBS affiliate WBTV, the rapper told law enforcement on both days that Curiel had assaulted him; she was charged with simple assault.

“It was very triggering, very sad,” the 27-year-old star told Martinez of the situation. “I wish it didn’t happen because I don’t want my baby to see that later on in life.”

The “Easy” singer says the way she’ll explain the video to her child “depends on the type of person she grows up to be.”

“The only responsibility I have is to raise her to be a strong woman. She’ll feel how she feels, she’s her own person,” Curiel explained. DaniLeigh also shared that it was “very selfish” to get into that fight, and that DaBaby has not apologized. “He’s like that though,” she said of her ex-boyfriend.

“I’ve learned to love myself so much more,” she said of her mindset since the end of the relationship. “Because I feel like I really did love him so much that I was just giving it all to him … I didn’t even focus on my career.”

“Dead to Me” is set to appear on her upcoming EP, My Side, which doesn’t have a release date yet.

Also teaming up with up-and-coming artist Kris Floyd, the three artists lace their unique sound to bring a mellow, captivating fusion between R&B, reggaeton, and hip-hop.

“Falta was inspired by my desire to merge R&B with reggaeton and to find that feeling with the melodies,” the Latin Grammy-winning producer said in a press release. “Kris and Dani’s tones combined with those reggaeton beats came full circle.”

On the track, DaniLeigh flaunts her Spanish-singing skills for the first time, singing about an old flame who cheated on her.

No haces falta, por eso no te he escrito / Lo hiciste con otra y no fue tan rico / Baby, tú ni has sido mi favorito / Ahora sé que perdí el tiempo contigo,” she sings.

Floyd then shares his side of the story, accepting his errors and trying to win her back.

In true DaniLeigh fashion, the artist shows off her killer dance moves in the music video directed by Michael Garcia and featuring all three artists.
