DDG sang along to one of Halle Bailey’s songs from her upcoming film, The Little Mermaid, during a recent live stream. In the clip, shared by The Neighborhood Talk on Instagram, DDG sings along to the song, “Part of Your World.” The track was featured in the original animated Disney film when it was sung by Jodi Benson.
It’s unclear exactly when DDG and Bailey began dating, but the two were spotted at Usher’s Las Vegas Residency in early 2022. They eventually made things Instagram official in March of that year.

The new video comes after Halle Bailey recently reaffirmed her commitment to the rapper amid rumors about their breakup. She explained that the rumors have caused her to set boundaries with her social media usage during a recent interview. “The biggest thing I’ve learned in dating when it comes to dating in the public eye, is that everybody’s gonna have an opinion about you, whether it’s good or bad” she reflected. “I’ve had this since I was younger. I think because I’ve grown up, kind of in the public eye, people think they have this sort of… I don’t know, that they can say what they feel about my life. Like they do with everyone in the public eye. But I’ve realized, for me, I just go with my heart.”
Bailey added: “It’s hard when you’re in the public eye because social media is also a part of your work, it’s a big part of what I do! I have to set healthy boundaries for myself, ‘cuz just like anyone, if you see all these people saying whatever they want about you, your life, what you choose to decide… That could take a toll on anyone, so I just have to choose to step aside and not look at any of that.”
