Lil Yachty took to Instagram live on Friday night to talk about “Circo Loco,” which has become undoubtedly the most controversial song off Her Loss, the new joint release from Drake and 21 Savage.

“I know he’s not going to address it, because I know Drake,” Lil Yachty, who has a writing credit on the track, said. “It’s not about Megan, it’s about women lying about their butt shots, saying it’s real when it’s fake.”

Yachty also has production credits on the project including “BackOutsideBoyz” and the Travis Scott-featured “Pussy & Millions.”

Since the album dropped, speculation has been made around some of Drake’s lyrics, most notably where he rapped, “This bitch lie ’bout gettin’ shots, but she still a stallion/She don’t even get the joke, but she still smiling.”

Many wondered if Drake was alluding to the ongoing legal battle between Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez in which she was allegedly shot by the Canadian artist.

Meg responded via social media, saying, “I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak ass conspiracy theories in bars to my name.”

Interestingly, Megan Thee Stallion has a credit on Her Loss. While she’s not a featured artist, she is listed as a co-writer for the opening song “Rich Flex.”
