DaBaby recently shared a new song called “Sneaky Link Anthem,” and some fans couldn’t feel his pivot to a new R&B-influenced sound.
A frequent criticism of DaBaby’s music is that he uses a similar flow in many of his records, but “Sneaky Link Anthem” sees him step out of his comfort zone. The cadence of his voice is still familiar, but he opts for a less rap approach on the track. As noted by HotNewHipHop, he has a lot of hate for the song on Twitter.
Well, it looks like DaBaby caught wind of the backlash to this song, which he seemed to address in a recent Instagram story.
In the clip, DaBaby can be seen watching the video for “Sneaky Link Anthem.”
“They hate me and that’s okay,” he said afterwards with a shrug after turning the camera to his face.
Despite the poor reception, DaBaby released another song called “Couple Cubes of Ice”. It also sees him try something new, this time delivering a higher-pitched hook than one might expect from him, while sticking firmly to his monotonous but quickly delivered verses.

DaBaby has also recently come under fire for his very public and highly volatile relationship with DaniLeigh.
“I appreciate all the DMs,” she recently wrote on her Instagram Story when addressing the ongoing drama between her and DaBaby. “And the stories you all share with me…I see a lot of women relating to me…And I can’t wait to inspire more and become the woman I was meant to be…Thank you for your love and motivation.”
