Who is Latto?
Latto, whose real name is Alyssa Michelle Stephens, was born on December 22, 1998, in Columbus, Ohio. She’s an American rapper. She grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and started rapping when she was a young girl. During her teenage years, she took part in a reality competition called ‘The Rap Game,’ which was produced by Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah. She used the name ‘Miss Mulatto’ during the competition and actually won it. But when Jermaine Dupri offered her a recording contract, she declined because she felt it didn’t pay her enough.
In 2019, Latto gained a lot of attention with her song “B-tch from da Souf,” which even got certified as gold later on. She became even more famous with her 2020 album called ‘Queen of Da Souf,’ which helped establish her as an up-and-coming rap star. In 2022, her next album ‘777’ featured a hit song called “Big Energy,” which not only kept her success going but also earned her several awards and nominations.

Why are BLINKs trending ‘Latto apologise to Jennie’?
Something surprising happened that got K-pop fans talking. Latto’s Instagram story ended up grabbing the interest of people online, unintentionally adding to the existing discussion about BLACKPINK’s Jennie. It all started when Jennie was facing backlash for listening to a song called “Bad Religion” by Frank Ocean. This song was considered disrespectful to the Muslim community, and that’s what sparked the controversy in the first place.
As people talked more and more about Jennie’s choice of song, a hashtag started trending on Twitter: “JENNIE APOLOGIZE TO MUSLIMS.” In a twist, Latto unintentionally got involved by posting a screenshot of her own name trending. She was actually trying to draw attention to her upcoming song release. However, what really got the attention of BLINKs (BLACKPINK fans) were the hashtags next to Latto’s name. These hashtags sparked new conversations and brought back the ongoing discussion about whether Jennie’s actions were disrespectful to the Muslim community.
