Is YG expanding his family? Well, at least it’s expanding its catalog.
On Thursday, Aug. 11, the “Big Bank” rapper took to Instagram to share a variation of the artwork for his new single “Toxic,” which is due out overnight. The new cover for the single features YG kneeling and kissing social media influencer Brittany Renner’s pregnant belly. In the caption of the revamped artwork, YG tagged Renner’s Instagram account and wrote “yes you are toxic!”
Renner responded with a photo of his baby bump on his Instagram Story with the comment “you’re the dad @YG,” which the rapper shared with his own IG. Renner also responded with a comment under YG’s post writing, “2 Pisces so you know it’s poisonous.
While YG and Renner sparked dating rumors back in the spring when they were spotted together, neither has confirmed the whispers. YG – who previously dated fellow artist Kehlani – has two daughters from a previous relationship and Renner has a son.
Billboard has reached out to YG representatives for comment.
YG’s original version of the cover for the single “Toxic” showed the rapper flanked on either side by dozens of scantily clad women in various red ensembles.
“Toxic” is set to be released on Friday (August 12). The song follows YG’s other 2022 releases such as “Scared Money” (featuring J. Cole and Moneybagg Yo) and “Run” (featuring Tyga, BIA and 21 Savage). The former reached No. 5 on the Rhythmic Airplay chart and No. 25 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The singles are set to lead to YG’s sixth studio album, Pray for me.
YG has earned 21 entries on the Billboard Hot 100, including Drake with “Who Do You Love” (#54) and “Toot It and Boot It” (#67). In 2014, the Compton rapper reached No. 6 as a featured artist on Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em.” On the Billboard 200, YG has landed five top 10 charts, including 2014 my crazy life (No. 2), 2018 stay dangerous (#5) and 2020s My 4Hunnid life (Number 4).
