French Montana teams up with Nicki Minaj on his new track, “Freaks.”
French Montana is on a roll these days. Seriously, his mom would be (and probably is) SO proud. Not only is the Bronx rapper gearing up to drop his debut LP, Excuse My French (out May 21), but he’s also racking up an extremely reputable set of collaborators. So far, French has teamed up with Diddy, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Lana Del Rey, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., and The Weeknd on his upcoming record, and now he’s managed to rope in Nicki Minaj as a guest for his latest single, “Freaks.”
+ Listen to French Montana’s “Freaks” featuring Nicki Minaj after the jump.
Set to a thumping, dancehall beat, the Rico Love-produced club banger features a hefty sample from Chaka Demus & Pliers‘ “Murder She Wrote” (otherwise known as THE BEST SONG EVER) and Lil’ Vicious and Doug E. Fresh‘s “Freaks.” Over a chaotic beat, French Montana spits about what most rappers spit about: being famous, rich, and hooking up with bangin’ chicks. Montana rhymes: “Drinking out the bottle, I’m leaning with a model/ I throw a hundred racks up/ You think I hit the lotto/ Riding with the wolves/ I ain’t talkin’ Minnesota.” Nicki’s up next, mainly talking about how hot she is, to which we say, “tell us something we don’t know.” “He said he met this little girl by the name of Onika/ Way my body shape, all the boys wanna freak her.” Okay, maybe “Freaks” isn’t the most romantic song to hear on Valentine’s Day, but we do admire French and Nicki’s self-confidence! Because THAT is how you bag babes.
