Love Thru the Computer
by Gucci Mane (featuring Justin Bieber)

Album: Delusions of Grandeur (2019)
  • A light-hearted track about, er, finding "Love Thru the Computer," this song finds Gucci Mane turning in a couple of loved-up verses.

    Even then, through computers I was kissin' you
    Remember through the computer, I would visit you


    Gucci Mane spent half a year in jail in 2014, but after the rapper was released, he was caught with a firearm and sent back to jail where he remained until May 2016. Here, Gucci raps about striking up a romance while he was incarcerated.
  • Justin Bieber croons some Auto-Tuned melodies on the hook. "You can meet me, you can meet me on my laptop... That's that computer love," he sings about an online relationship.
  • Frequent Cardi B collaborator J. White Did It's production borrows from Zapp & Roger's track "Computer Love." The first verse of the 1985 song is sampled for the intro, and these same vocals can be heard throughout the cut.
