Latto has been keeping the identity of her boo lowkey for a while but fans couldn’t help but notice that a new tattoo might have blown the “Big Energy” rapper’s cover. In an Instagram Story post, fans saw that her new ink behind her ear spelled out the name “Sheyaa” – which just so happens to be 21’s first name.

The two have worked together previously as 21 is featured on Latto’s “Big Wheelie.” “[21 Savage] is one of the male Atlanta artists running it. Then I’m the female running it, hands down,” the 777 creator declared last March per HotNewHipHop.

However, 21 still denied having a “celebrity” girlfriend when asked recently.

“I’ve been hot for a long time. I don’t do all the antics and s—. I don’t got a celebrity girlfriend,” he said on ClubHouse in December. “I’m not finna be out everywhere. I’m not dropping music every other week.” And, he added, “I’m not going on live talking about s— every other week.”

Latto has mentioned in the past that she has a boyfriend but prefers to keep that part of her life out of the spotlight.

“I don’t like to speak on it. I just don’t make it a public thing,” she revealed to Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee in 2022. Plus, she said, “I feel like I have to expose so much of my life unwillingly and I don’t wanna expose it.”

Besides fans being super intrigued about their love lives, the two have been in the studio hard at work the last couple of months. 21 dropped his collab album with Drake Her Loss back in November. It went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 making it 21’s third leader.

Latto dropped 777 last year which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 but recently she released a freestyle to SZA’s “Smoking On My Ex Pack” from her SOS LP.
