Hip-hop’s new favorite couple Quavo and Saweetie recently interviewed with GQ Magazine and shared the intriguing story and details behind their popular romantic relationship. Known for their signature “icy” music style and fashion sense, the power couple have been in a 2-year relationship and are now more interconnected than ever.
Confessing her longtime crush on the Migos rapper, Saweetie tells GQ, “He’s always been fine to me. In a group chat [with friends], I would screenshot his picture and be like, ‘Damn, this nigga is fine.’ ” The couple would later go on to connect soon after Quavo first lays his eyes on Saweetie via his explore page. Sharing his thoughts in the moment, Quavo says, “I was like, ‘Damn! Who is this?’ So I did my research and I DM her. I was like, ‘How she going to call herself icy and she don’t talk to me?’ ” Quavo then dm’d the “icy girl,” who replied back with the epic stir-fry emoji. After Quavo took a shot with Saweetie by inviting her to a kickback that turned out to be a disaster, Saweetie admits to GQ that she ghosted the superstar while also revealing “I was trying to play hard to get.”
When Quavo was able to take Saweetie on an actual first date, the couple dined at Stoney River where Quavo shockingly almost choked on a crab cake. Although Quavo confesses he felt a bit embarrassed, he later took Saweetie on a tour of Quality Control Music’s headquarters and ended the night at Magic City where a fight broke out. As the crowd quickly dispersed, the two lost each other. “All this time, I forget I’m having a date! She catches up and cussed me out in front of Magic City,” reveals Quavo. Putting aside the chaotic night, the couple were still able to make up and laugh off everything. Quavo and Saweetie’s full interview is available now in GQ!
