Hell hath no fury like a Kehlani scorned. After splitting from YG following his alleged adultery, fans believe the singer seemingly referenced their past drama on multiple songs.

If there’s any silver lining to Kehlani’s short-lived romance with YG crashing-and-burning, it’s that it may have inspired scorching new lines on her new album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t. With hard-hitting lines like “all of this love is toxic” (via track No. 1, “Toxic,”) and “The option was to stay and ride / Or to let it die / I picked a side, now I’m just grievin’” (via track No. 3, “Grieving”), it’s easy to see why fans would presume a certain ex inspired the lyrics.

“Kehlani’s new album is 100% about YG lol,” one fan tweeted, while another wrote, “This kehlani’s best album. She sick of yg’s s–t and I LOVE IT.” Many fans really did believe that YG had to have influenced some of these new songs. “Just finished listening to Kehlani’s new album and….Yg really left an impact on my girl [sad emoji] like she was in love love with that mans…..,” a third listener tweeted, and a fourth wrote, “YG had Kehlani WIDE OPEN. Water signs will do it to ya.” Interestingly, the track list contains a song called “Water” in which Kehlani sings, “Swimming with a Pisces every night / Ain’t really that deep, but he deep inside.” You guessed it — YG is a Pisces!

Kehlani and YG called it quits in February, mere months after their first public appearance together during New York Fashion Week in September 2019. The timing of their split was incredibly cringe-worthy. The two put out “Konclusions,” a collaboration, on Valentine’s Day. Then, a few days later, she released “Valentine’s Day (Shameful),” in which she seemed to call out an ex for some shameful behavior. “I’d say your name, but you don’t deserve recognition/You played the hero, but you really are the villain/You called me crazy, but it was my intuition/Used me for status and the fame and recognition.”

Later in the track, she alludes to helping the partner fight an addiction, while singing “you’re nothing to me. …Wish I didn’t check your text when you was drunk asleep/I’ve seen everything I didn’t want to see/That I needed to see/That I needed it to be/Hope you live happily ever after with the b-itch / Fly to France wine and crackers / Honeymooning with the b-tch / Hope you f-ck around and have the son you wanted with the bitch.”

If that wasn’t enough, she concluded. “You might be so amazed after all of this / So out on the table / Your friends and your family, even your label / Everyone love me, damn it’s so shameful / I kept you stable, you should be grateful.”

She also tweeted-and-deleted, “S**t happens. Life really happens. U Jus gotta stay pure and move with love, and thank god you are one of the ones that do.” This apparent breakup came four months after YG was accused of cheating on Kehlani. He was supposedly caught kissing another woman outside of LA Rams star Todd Gurley’s Halloween party. However, he denied cheating on her. “He was drunk, got carried away, and it was very regretful for putting himself in that situation and hurting #Kehlani,” his team said in a statement. He later posted to his Instagram stories, “I love Kehlani. I would never.

J.I.D – Never

[Hook]
Never been shit, never had shit, never knew shit, never out never do shit, damn
But a nigga never gave two shits
Never been a bitch, never had a Rollie on the wrist, never had shit, never take, never asking give me this, give me that shit, give me everything nigga, give me everything nigga
(again)
Never been shit, never had shit, never knew shit, never out never do shit, damn
But a nigga never gave two shits
Never been a bitch, never had a Bezel on the wrist, never had shit, never take, never asking give me this, give me that, give me everything nigga, give me everything nigga, give me everything

[Verse 1]
Never had a real dollar to my name bruh
Shit been lame bruh
I ain’t even in this shit for the fame bruh, it’s the pain bruh
Most of the niggas I came up (with), haven’t came up
And doing the same stuff, but I haven’t came up
This really ain’t nothing, niggas thinking they fucking with JID
Ya’ll got the game fucked (up)
Tremendously, can’t fuck with the mind of a mental fiend who dig deep in the depths when he into deep
I crept on the steps where the demons leap
And yell well show the Lord what He means to me
Oh my God, don’t be mean to me
We arrived with a bean or three
And it’s not what it seems to be
I can die, I can fly, I can try very easily
I’ma guy need a giant, she a vibrant thing, I probably won’t buy it
Bird bitch take flight, no pilot
Serve dick, curve bitch, no bias
Back up, back up, chick bad timing
I got to get on stage, you better get on page
I have you looking out the window pane and in the rain and in the thing, but in the way
If I say this is what it is forget the lip
Now what’s my point, now I forget
Got me fucking up my script, fuck this shit, I got this shit
Getting to the point where everybody say they from the block and shit with Glocks and shit and poppin’, pimpin’, trapping, and sipping lean
Ya’ll niggas fall for anything, you got the plug in Medellín?
Kingpin, you a pin king (Kingpin, you a pin king)
Bye, bye, niggas in sync
Try I? Nigga risky
Fire, fire from the wrist piece
Niggas shooting like the ’60s

[Hook]
Never been shit, never had shit, never knew shit, never out never do shit, damn
But a nigga never gave two shits
Never been a bitch, never had a Rollie on the wrist, never had shit, never take, never asking give me this, give me that shit, give me everything, nigga fuck you

[Verse 2]
Alright what you call a chick that don’t suck dick? You don’t
And if you think you finna come up this, you won’t
Down comes the boogie and up jumps the funk
This beat taking a beat and got hand out the lumps
Damn baby, yo ass stand out in pumps
That’s outstanding, stand outside until your man come
Or you can leave with the kid, we can plan some
You know I came from the dirt like a sandstorm
Nigga, this a 3 point and-1, and 100, Wilt Chamberlain with the hand dumb
Shawty love JID, let me turn into a hand puppet
She moan sound like German or something
Run game, bitches think I’m Todd Gurley or something
Give me jersey, I done balled so hard, I caught a hernia
Wheeled yo bitch out my bed in a gurney
You gotta leave lil mama, the clocks turning
I hit it first, Ray J or Ron Jeremy
They bleed like us so them niggas could never scare me
No niggas got more glow than JID
Barely scratching the fucking surface
You need work, you need purpose
Everybody good, everybody trap perfect
Everything cool, don’t nobody act nervous
Just ignore the fact that your favorite rap nigga is a sap nigga
We don’t dap niggas, get the rrrat from the ratchet
Get the pack out the package
Lil’ savage ass, ratchet ass, bastard ass, havin’ ass, rapping ass, jacking ass, wait
Finna black, green dot, send in cash, pen and pad, minivan, been in that, been with that bullshit nigga

[Outro]
I don’t wake up to the bull like I usually do
Young niggas down the block on the woopty woop
Better pray to God they don’t shoot at you
Dreams of cleanin’ this dirty money out my cuticles
Then a nigga make the crowd jump like Zoboomafoo
Shit’s beautiful
