Quavo Shares What When Down in the DMs With Saweetie

Icy Girl and Glacier Boy

July 17, 2020

Saweetie and Quavo have become one of Hip Hop's hottest couples since meeting on social media in 2018.

In a new GQ feature, Quavo and Saweetie reflect on their budding romance, since Quavo slid in her DMs with this famous line: "I told her, 'You an "Icy Girl," you need a glacier boy,'" a node to Saweetie's 2017 platinum single and Quavo's nickname.

Quavo said he found Saweetie on the explore page, and after a few emoji exchanges led to months of hours-long phone conversations, the two ended up on a messy first date at a strip club, which Quavo said "sounds more like an episode of Donald Glover's 'Atlanta'" show on FX.

Saweetie, aka Diamonté Harper, credits Quavo with teaching her to be a "better communicator," something she struggled with growing up.

She admitted, "I feel like I'm growing and I'm maturing because of him -- not the music, not Saweetie, but Diamonté.… I don't know how I would be as a person if I would have never met him."

In return, Quavo said, "I give her Quavious [Keyate Marshall]. I give her what my mama calls me."

"When she talks to me, and when we started talking to each other, the Saweetie [stuff] go out the window, and the Quavo [stuff] go out the window," Quavo added. "I don't let people inside my life, and I let her inside. And she's helping me grow up. She's showing me how to love a woman."
