The couple first sparked romance rumors when they appeared in two music videos together in 2021. Uchis starred in Toliver’s videos for “What You Need” and “Drugs N Hella Melodies,” which were both shot where her family lives in Colombia.

Speaking with W Magazine in July 2021, Toliver confirmed the relationship and shared that they “just vibe” but aren’t “crazy public.”

“I already had it in my mind to go out there and shoot a video with her incorporated into it, to make it a real-deal situation,” Toliver told the outlet about shooting the music video in Colombia. He also shared that he was able to meet some of Uchis’ family members during the trip.

The pair had been dating for a while before going public with their relationship after meeting through a mutual friend in Houston, per Elle.

In part, the artists built a connection through their mutual passion for music. During an interview with Elle in March 2023, Uchis shared that music gives the two “a whole different way to connect” as they can “just get on a microphone and bounce melodies off each other.”

“And we love listening to music together,” she added. “That was one of the first ways we really bonded: We just showed each other a bunch of music. We have pretty much the same tastes, so it comes naturally.”

“It’s always nice to get his opinion because he’s, like, an OG Kuchi himself,” she said, referencing the name of her fandom.

While the pair do give each other feedback on their music, Toliver said during his appearance on Nessa On Air that they also try to give each other freedom to create.

“We just try to sharpen each other on whatever we’re trying to do,” he said. “But I really just let her do her thing. She let me do my thing, and it works.”

Despite their high-profile careers, Uchis and Toliver prefer to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. In an appearance on the BigBoyTV YouTube channel in March 2023, Uchis opened up about the difficulties of dating in the spotlight.

“Being in a public relationship, it definitely has its moments. Where you’re like, ‘Omg, I wish everybody would shut the f--- up,’ ” she said. “We definitely try to keep our relationship as private as possible.”

However, the pair do occasionally post about each other on social media. In June 2023, Uchis celebrated Toliver’s birthday by posting a series of photos with the rapper on Instagram.

What I always aspire to do with my music is to be unpredictable. That’s what makes what I do fun. I want to keep people guessing.”
