It appeared to be all jokes between him and R&B songbird Kehlani when the Queens emcee told fans he'd drop their record together upon hitting one million followers on either of his social platforms. However, the Bay Area sweetheart wasn't really feeling his antics.
Some may have asked Rule to take Kehlani off the song and release it independently, but she wasn't having it. In a series of now-deleted tweets, Lani replied, "He can't take me off MY song." The collab seems to have, initially, happened as a joke, but the "Honey" singer said "he can't up and decide to drop my old sh*t... WHY would I want MY old sh*t out without MY consent?"
Kehlani is simply tired of being walked all over and mentioned that she had to deal with a similar issue a couple weeks ago. Then, the "Distraction" singer clapped back at one fan by reminding her that nobody is "entitled" to her music, period and even quoted Erykah Badu's classic line.
Proving to her that he "don't want no smoke," he says, "I would never release your record without you and your team's consent," and she appreciates his sentiments.
All's well that ends well, I guess. However, if you're still dying to hear the collab, one fan blessed us all with snippets.
