Page Six reported that de Lesseps’ latest project was “a rap single.” While speaking to the publication in December 2021, the “RHONY” star shared how she came up with her new song called “F-Bombs on the G (With the OGs).” She explained in an interview promoting “RHUGT,” her castmate Kenya Moore, of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame, discussed having an intense moment involving Ramona Singer inside of a Gulfstream jet. 

“We were doing an interview and Kenya goes, ‘Yeah, there were a lot of F-bombs on the G.’ And then I was like, ‘With the OGs!’ And then I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s a song,’” said de Lesseps. 

During the Page Six interview, the Bravo star also discussed the writing process of the rap. 

“I went into a writing session and I showed pictures of the [‘RHUGT’] trip, talked about the trip with a producer friend of mine, who wrote ‘Money’ and ‘Chic.’ And we produced this new song. The fans are going to flip!” said the reality television star. 

She also noted that her team was “putting together a little video with Bravo with excerpts from the trip to match up to the music.” The music video was released on December 9, 2021.
