25-year-old rapper Yung Baby Tate manifested a Fenty interaction amid defending herself from body-shamers on the internet earlier this week, and she got Rihanna’s attention.

Previously, we reported that the young star caused a stir online after photos and videos from her performing at Afropunk in Atlanta were picked apart by critics who judged her body. Tate, who wore a cropped top with pants, clapped back at fans’ suggestion she “lose 10 pounds,” critiquing her midsection.

This is honestly so iconic

The conversation got so heated it spilled from Instagram to Twitter, where she began to repost photos from fans with all body types in over to promote body positivity.

Amid the body positive moment, YBT tweeted “Y’all gone be so mad when I link with Savage X Fenty in this bomb ass body of mine.”

Apparently, it didn’t take long. According to YBT, Rihanna herself hit her up.

“I’m really crying y’all Rihanna just dmd me.”

Talk about manifesting! Good for her. Ironically, YBT’s arguably most successful song is called ‘I Am’, and it’s all about manifesting confidence. The song is a huge hit on TikTok…maybe we will be seeing it in a Fenty commercial soon?
