After facing backlash she posted an apology on her Instagram story.
Coucou Chloe also addressed the backlash and issued an apology on Twitter.
I want to deeply apologize for the offence caused by the vocal samples used in my song ‘DOOM'. The song was created using samples from Baile Funk tracks I found online. At the time, I was not aware that these samples used text from an Islamic Hadith. 1/2
