Noooo! Sanaa Lathan is Dating French Montana?
Who knew Sanaa Lathan could sing?! Who knew she was dating French Montana? Two of these things have been confirmed in past 72 hours. This past Saturday, the Internet was surprised with a single from the actress with features Dej Loaf.
Today, during an interview on L.A.’s 92.3 on Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Lathan was asked about French. At first, Lathan said she “doesn’t talk about her personal life.” But then followed up with, “I am dating.”
Rumors of a possible Lathan and French romance began to circulate when Diddy posted and then deleted a video on his Instagram of the two in the back of an Uber looking pretty close and also turned up after a night of partying.
But back to this song Lathan released over the weekend. It’s called “Emotional” and features Dej Loaf. Lathan is singing about something most women are all too familiar with, emotional men.
“Emotional” is based on Michael Ealy’s character, Kevin, in The Perfect Guy. At the screening, while joking around with friends about how “emotional” the character is, Lathan told producer Detail she was down to record a song to promote the film.
The lyrics find Lathan calling out men who are insecure and needy and Dej shares those same sentiments with her verse. Lathan reached out to Dej to join the track because she wanted to make it “a woman thing.”
She sees the song as a way of stepping out of her comfort zone. Also, check out the French shout out in the caption.
Life can be amazing when you step outside your comfort zone sometimes and say yes. Who woulda thought I’d have a single out. It tickles me pink Hahahaha! 😊Shoutout to @detailgo & @frenchmontana for the encouragement. Shoutout to brilliant @misschloeflower on piano & the amazing @dejloaf. I’m thinking of this as character I’m playing singing this song. She’s my character Leah’s (in #ThePerfectGuy) ALTER EGO and her name is #BrownSugar.. 😼 Link in bio. Enjoy.
During an appearance on New York’s City Hot 97 morning show, Ebro In the Morning, French was asked about he Lathan’s night out.
“I’m not denying anybody,” said the rapper. “All I am saying is I am just having fun. That is all I’m trying to do, I am not trying to get caught up in the box of anything. I just want to have fun.”
Fun is always good.
