Coi Leray accepts Latto's peace offering after explaining that she was "confused" about the "Put It On Da Floor" shout out.

Latto killed any speculations about her rumored feud with Coi Leray during Coachella. After releasing “Put It On Da Floor” on Friday, the Queen Of The Souf rapper delivered her first performance of the record during Coachella weekend 2. Delivering her opening bars a capella, she clarified her reference to Coi Leray before jumping into the song. “Aye, Coi, by the way, I love yo body, baby,” she said. It didn’t take long for the clip to return to the Trendsetter artist who simply quoted the video on Twitter with a “100” emoji.

Ultimately, it all boiled down to a simple misunderstanding between the two artists, which Coi admitted afterward. “It was the diss record with my name on it that confused me. Much love to Latto! Appreciate the compliment,” she wrote on Twitter. She previously expressed a similar statement a day prior when she acknowledged that she may have overreacted. “Maybe I overreacted idk,” she wrote. “I’m not a big blunt small blunt. Don’t compare me to nada.”

Latto & Coi Leray Make Up

The line in question lands on the second verse of Latto’s “Put It On Da Floor,” which led to the internet debating whether or not it was shade. “Smokin’ on that gas, blunt big as Coi Leray/ B*tches like to run to mouths but I’m the type to run the fade,” she raps. Immediately afterward, Coi went off on Twitter, claiming that Latto simply wanted to engage in some sort of rap beef with her. Afterward, she suggested that there were tensions behind closed doors between the two. Some felt like it may have surrounded the leak of Latto’s reference track for “Blick Blick.”

Unfortunately, in Coi Leray’s attempt to deflect the beef, she got caught up in her own fib. At one point, she suggested that she “don’t know none of you bitches in real life.” As expected, fans thought that was a dig toward Latto, though it didn’t take long for receipts to surface. Coi Leray, in fact, appeared in Latto’s 2020 music video for “On God” as an extra. Regardless, Coi Leray and Latto have put their feud behind them, Perhaps, we can expect a collaboration in the near future.
