"If he put you in the Lamb, then you would get the tattoo."

Latto and 21 Savage appear to have a relationship that's deeper than music yet the two continuously deny there’s anything romantic between them. However, both Latto and the Savage Mode left a trail of evidence that suggests otherwise. The “Big Energy” star confirmed that she’s in a relationship but denied that the Her Loss rapper is the mystery man. At the same time, 21 Savage also pushed back against claims that he has a “celebrity girlfriend” like Latto. “I’ve been hot for a long time,” he said during a Clubhouse conversation. “I don’t do all the antics and shit. I don’t got a celebrity girlfriend."

Perhaps, they’re trying to avoid the fanfare of becoming a power couple by coming out to the public. After all, there’s plenty of pressure that comes with the turf. Still, Latto revealed in February a new tattoo that appears to be of 21 Savage’s government name, Shéyaa. As you could expect, Internet sleuths put two-and-two together while Latto continued to deny their relationship publicly. Last month, Latto doubled down that she was not dating 21 Savage. 

Latto’s Addresses 21 Savage Tattoo In New Snippet

With a new album seemingly on the way, Latto shared a new snippet to her Instagram page. However, one lyric, in particular, stood out. “If he put you in that Lamb, then you would get the tattoo,” Latto raps, which led many to conclude that she was talking about 21 Savage. Though she didn’t address the rumors directly on Twitter as she’s been doing over the past few months, plenty of folks felt as though it was confirmation of their romance

Though it’s unclear when the single might see the light of day, Latto’s currently gearing up to launch her Apple Music show, 777 Radio. She announced the program earlier this week, which we could imagine will be an outlet where she could address rumors and debut new music. Perhaps, we’ll hear the song in its entirety later this week. For now, it seems like 21 Savage and Latto are fine with people carrying on with their own narrative.  Check out her latest snippet above and sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
