Bad Boy Records' French Montana has the Internet going nuts, teasing fans with new cover art for an upcoming single called "Freaks" featuring Young Money starlet Nicki Minaj.
Although there is no release date attached to the artwork, reports claim the track is off his upcoming Bad Boy debut.
French Montana has a shaking single up his sleeve. The Coke Boys general is set to release his new single "Freaks," co-starring everyone's favorite Barbz in Nicki Minaj. Set to appear on his oft-delayed Excuse My French debut album (due this spring), Frenchie's new collaboration follows his current "Marble Floors" cut with Rick Ross, Lil' Wayne and 2 Chainz. Expect to hear the new single in the coming days. (Miss Info TV)
Last month, Montana announced his Excuse My French would drop in late winter.

Recently, the New York rapper revealed elusive rapper Ma$e would have a significant role on his solo album.
When contacted by Billboard, Ma$e's camp deflected questions about his future plans. Reps from Maybach didn't return calls for comment. According to Montana, Ma$e is serving as an A&R representative on Montana's forthcoming Bad Boy debut, "Excuse My French," as well as appearing on the remix of Montana's "Everything's a Go." "I'm not sure what kind of decisions he's going to make," Montana says, "[but] I would love to see him in my camp." (Billboard)
Initial plans had the LP dropping last summer but it eventually got pushed back.
French Montana has been steadily promoting his debut studio album, "Excuse My French," since Rick Ross revealed the album's release date on Feb. 26. But fans will have to wait longer than its initial day of release of July 17. Yesterday (June 15), a rep for French Montana confirmed to Billboard's The Juice that "Excuse My French" will be released in early fall. "I'm still working on a couple of the last pieces so I'm not really rushing it," French told The Juice. Although his full-length opus is "halfway done," French admits hitting the road on Drake's Club Paradise tour interrupted the recording process. "This tour set me back," he continued. (The Juice)
