Leray addressed the viral video on an Instagram livestream, laughing off the video while warning her fans about mixing alcohol. The 25-year-old said she was in good company with her friends and mother.
“It’s the vlogs are making it seem like I’m dead in the tub,” she said, noting that she was drunk after mixing 818 Tequila with Don Julio 1942 Tequila.
“I guarantee you gon’ be in the tub just like I was!” Leray said. “Just a side note, when you’re super drunk, right, and you’re lit, my advice for you is to take a bath. My clothes didn’t come off because these b*tches was in the bathroom with me. My mom is here, too! You gotta see the whole video!”
She was joined by her mother, who also spoke up for her daughter, admitting that they were having fun.
“We have fun; that’s what we do. It was all laughter and fun,” Leray’s mother said. “Stop hating. We gon protect her 100,000%, get the f*ck outta here.”

In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Leray spoke about enjoying the fruit of her musical success and her desire for her work to be appreciated and recognized.
“I couldn’t wait, you know, for moments like this, where my hard work is being credited for and just appreciated and recognized,” Leray said. “That’s really the most important part of it because as artists, we work so hard, we have sleepless nights, and make a lot of mental sacrifices, and it’s moments like this that I really appreciate. And it feels good to know that every time I’m leveling up. I hate feeling like I’m stuck in the same position.”
As part of the Monster Energy Tour, Leray will perform in cities across the country, including Chicago, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Detroit, Nashville and New York City, before her last show on Aug. 25 in San Diego.
