DDG, an American rapper, has spoken out about his long-term relationship with Halle Bailey. The 25-year-old actor raved over his 22-year-old fiancée in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, revealing that she drives him like no other individual.
“I’ve never met somebody who inspires me as much as she does. I’m seeing strange things. I’d never been exposed to anything like this before.”
DDG and Halle Bailey fueled relationship speculations in January 2022 when they were seen together at an Usher performance. They made their romance public on Instagram two months later, in March.

DDG and Halle Bailey met each other on Instagram.
During an interview with Essence Magazine for their September/October cover story, Bailey revealed how she met the rapper when he sneaked into her DMS. She stated:
“I grew up watching YouTube and was always impressed by the young Black producers.” He was among them. I’d totally forgotten about him. But then I realized that he was releasing music, and I was drawn to this one song in particular. He messaged me by chance, and the rest is history.”
DDG recently talked with The Breakfast Club about how he picked the right chance to slip into Bailey’s communications, whom he jokingly refers to as his “wife.” Elon Musk claimed that he made the first move after reading her tweet about 50 Cent’s Many Men, which is one of his favorite songs. They quickly clicked because they shared a passion for music.
Furthermore, the rapper revealed in the same interview that Halle Bailey brought him to social groups with whom he would not normally associate. He said that Bailey introduced him to fashion shows and gatherings attended by powerful people, which transformed his perspective. The couple has attended various public events together after declaring their relationship official on Instagram, including the BET Awards on June 26, 2022. Professionally, Halle Bailey is preparing to debut her live-action picture The Little Mermaid. The Disney picture, directed by Rob Marshall and starring Jonah Hauer-King, Melissa McCarthy, Javier Bardem, Noma Dumezweni, and others, is set to be released on May 26, 2023.
Meanwhile, on October 31, 2022, DDG released a music video for his song Remember Me. The song is taken from his most recent album, It’s Not Me, It’s You. Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr., better known as DDG, is a native of Pontiac, Michigan. In 2014, he launched his singing career on YouTube and quickly climbed to stardom. DDG co-founded his own record company, Zooted Music, in 2020 after signing with Epic Records in 2018. Moonwalking in Calabasas, his 2020 single, debuted at number 82 on the Billboard Hot 100.
