Whether you tuned in to the BET 2021 awards or didn’t, it’s likely that you’ve come across that picture of Jack Harlow and Saweetie crossing paths and locking eyes.

Immediately, fans started ‘shipping’ Saweetie and Jack, convinced of their romantic attraction. However, fans of Jack Harlow’s might recall he had another rapper in his sights before Saweetie: Doja Cat.

Jack Harlow’s crush on the Angeleno rapper is well-known and well-documented. Over a year after their interaction on Instagram Live and fans of the musicians are still hoping the two will end up together.

Jack Harlow talks Doja Cat crush on Instagram Live

Last year, Jack Harlow publicly admitted he had a crush on Doja Cat on an Instagram Live video. The rappers united on the Live, despite not knowing one another.

When Jack let Doja into the Live video, she asked: “You know who I am?” Jack Harlow then proceeds to tell her: “People thought we were dating because your man apparently looks like me.”

Jack and Doja have a back and forth, which includes each of them saying “you’re great,” with Jack adding that he’s “happy you’re in here.”

When Doja Cat has to go, Jack Harlow ends the chat saying “love you” to the “Say So” singer. To no response. This has since become known as the moment Jack Harlow ‘shoot his shot’ with Doja Cat.

After Doja had gone from the call, Jack Harlow admitted to his fans: “Oh man, I’ve got a crush on her for months (sic).”
