French Montana "Gifted" (ft. the Weeknd)
Published May 15, 2013French Montana's Bad Boy Entertainment debut Excuse My French hits stores next Tuesday (May 21), but the rapper is offering another sneak peek ahead of time. This latest preview is for "Gifted," and it features downtrodden Toronto R&B singer the Weeknd.
The special guest star takes centre stage straight out of the gates and sings sadly about filling his cup with liquor, getting money, and the consequences of groupie love atop a web of guitars both fuzzed-out and saccharine. Montana finally arrives around the midpoint once a boom-bap gets brought in, offering up both big-pimpin' braggadocio and a few end-is-near comparisons to Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky and Whitney Houston.
