Singer DaniLeigh found herself in a heap of controversy after releasing her cut "Yellow Bone" last week, and she's since apologized.

The Miami native was accused of colorism after people heard the song, and during her initial response she asked why people are taking it "so personally?"

But DaniLeigh — who's dating DaBaby — used a softer approach in her new apology and said she now understands why some are angry with her.

"I think people twisted it into thinking, like, I'm trying to bash another woman, another skin tone, that was never my intention," she explained. "I wasn't brought up like that. I never looked at my skin as a privilege. I never looked at me as 'I'm better than somebody because of my skin tone.'" 

"I see brown skin women flaunt their skin all the time in music. Why can't I talk about mine?" DaniLeigh continued. "If you look at me, I'm light-skinned, I'm a yellow bone. In my opinion, that's just what I am. So it wasn't something that I looked at so deeply, which I can see why people will take it deeply. So I understand and I'm sorry that I wasn’t sensitive to the topic when I wrote my comment 'Why are you guys taking so personal?' Because it can be a personal thing to certain people, because colorist is a real thing so I do get it. But I'm not that. I’m not a colorist. I’m not a racist. I date a whole chocolate man. I have beautiful dark-skinned friends."

Thoughts?
