French Montana & The Weeknd Are “Gifted”: Hear The Collaboration
If you were getting sick of playing The Weeknd’s 20-second “John Carpenter” teaser on a loop over the past 24 hours, we’ve got some new material from the shadowy singer for ya! Well, “Gifted” is new French Montana, technically. But it may as well be a track from The Weeknd, because Abel Tesfaye does the heavy lifting with his guest spot.
As with his appearances on songs from Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, Tesfaye is at the forefront here, singing uninterrupted for a hefty opening chunk and then returning for the hook. In between, Montana raps about balling over the static-y beat. Hear it below.
