Jermaine Dupri is coming to DVSN’s defense after their new single, “If I Get Caught”, started to take off on social media. The song, which contains a sample of JAY-Z’s 2001 hit song “Song Cry,” sees the Canadian R&B duo sing about infidelity.

“The people I see with something bad to say about ‘If I Get Caught’ have undoubtedly never listened to the blues,” Dupri tweeted. “And if you’ve never listened to blues. then you are musically blind in my book and cannot see what we did.”

Fans on Twitter had complained that the lyrics were toxic and longed for music from artists “who just want to be in love,” such as an user put it. Even Jay-Z recognized the lyrics’ toxicity when he released the sample, telling DVSN in a text exchange shared on social media that he wants to be on the record because he thinks the “song is wrong.”

“I didn’t think you could make a song more toxic than Song Cry. I stand corrected,” Hov wrote. “I just want a disclaimer saying I said this song is wrong! Haaaaa And you are good!”

On “Song Cry,” Jay-Z raps, “I was just fucking them, I’d go back in a minute.”
