Curve
by Gucci Mane (featuring The Weeknd)

Album: Mr. Davis (2017)
Charted: 67

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Gucci Mane is joined by The Weekend as they talk about freeing themselves of curving gold diggers who want to take all of their riches. The Toronto singer contributes the first verse in which he sings about his late night escapades before skewering money-grabbing groupies on the hook. Meanwhile, the Atlanta rapper seems happy during the second verse to incorporate the gold-digging girls into his luxurious lifestyle.
  • The eerie trap beat is courtesy of NAV, The Weeknd's XO Records protégé.
  • Gucci told Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show how the collaboration came about:

    "I'm a huge fan and I respect the Weeknd and whole team of XO," he said. "We exchanged numbers and started build a rapport with each other. And we were bouncing off records; I'll send him records, he'll send me beats. And then one day he sent me this record that Nav produced. It was like an early birthday gift or Christmas present."
