Bailey previously told People magazine in a May 2023 interview that she “would” call the Zooted Music record label founder her real-life Prince Charming. “I think the best thing about young love is that you’re able to continue to find yourself through this journey of loving somebody else,” the actress said at the time. “And you’re discovering new parts of yourself and maybe things that you didn’t notice before about your heart.”
Lastly, in September, the actress said that her upcoming solo album is inspired by her experience being with “deep, deep love.”
“You know, you have puppy love experiences, you think that’s love. But this is my first deep, deep, real love,” the singer said of her relationship with DDG. “This has been a really beautiful transformative time for me. I have all this new material to write about,” the R&B star continued. “It’s like, What the heck did I just experience and go through? A whirlwind of amazingness. You never know what you’re capable of until you’re put through it. I was very creatively inspired, and then from there, I fell in love. And so I really just played with those themes in my music.”
