Coi Leray Thinks Some Of Her Fans Are Too Attached To “Baby Coi”

Coi Leray already has two commercial projects under her belt. Between them she’s racked up some pretty significant hits like “Players” and made a name for herself in hip-hop. After her album Coi underperformed despite having a smash hit single when it dropped last year, she may be looking for a new direction in her next project. That’s why she recently took to Twitter to talk directly to some of her fans that are obsessed with her current persona and don’t want her to change.

In the post, she asked for room to grow. “I feel like some of my fans in there mind won’t allow me to get older and grow. They are attached to baby Coi with the braids, but it’s okay to grow up. It’s okay to get older,” her tweet reads. She replied to a response from a fan specifically mentioning her braids and that fans of them wouldn’t be completely left out in the cold. “Oh no baby, I’m getting braids this week my hair is finally grown out. But as I GROW into a women, I’m learning and discovering new things about myself. New desires new interest , new icks, new Melodie’s , new flows, new topics ect,” a follow-up tweet reads.
