New Music: French Montana f/ The Weeknd – ‘Gifted’

French Montana had the strip clubs on lock with “Pop That” and “Freaks,” and now he explores a darker side on his new single “Gifted” featuring The Weeknd. The Bad Boy MC raps about the highs and lows of fame, while shouting out troubled pop culture icons like Whitney Houston and Tiger Woods. The Weeknd provides the haunting hook (“When they love me, I get money”).

In addition to The Weeknd, French’s debut Excuse My French features Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lil Wayne, Scarface, Raekwon, and Ne-Yo, plus production from Harry Fraud, Young Chop, Mike WiLL Made It, and Rico Love.

A video for “Gifted” was recently shot in Miami and features some sexy ladies and a pair of tiger cubs named Ike and Tina.
