Valentine’s Day is for the lovers, but what about the Freaks? While they don’t have celebrated holiday, French Montana might be able to satisfy them (pause). On the latest single off his Bad Boy debut album, Montana connects with producer Rico Love, who samples both Chaka Demus & Pliers’ Murder She Wrote and Li’l Vicious and Doug E. Fresh’s Freaks. The end result features all the bells and whistles you’d imagine, from relentless clapping to a boisterous air horn, which is perfectly suited to both counterbalance Montana’s nonchalant approach and accentuate guest Nicki Minaj’s ever-changing, eccentric flow. Fans awaiting Montana’s Excuse My French will have to sit tight as it has been moved to a May 21 release.
