Sometimes all it takes is a snowflake emoji to land the girl of your dreams. But you probably also need to be Quavo.
The Migos rapper jumped into the “How it started versus how it’s going” challenge to rep for his relationship with Saweetie on Wednesday (October 7), and shared a screenshot of their very first DM conversation. After he launched with a snowflake emoji and the Bay Area rapper responded with an equally profound bowl of noodles emoji, Quavo then followed up with an even more interesting line.
“u so icy ima glacier boy,” he wrote in the March 2018 exchange.

And just like that, the couple are now in love and going strong over two years later. Acknowledging the simplicity of the exchange, Saweetie retweeted her boo’s post with some additional insight.
“Straight to the point I been wanting this man,” she wrote with laughing emojis.

During a GQ interview in July, Quavo referenced the DM when going into detail about how he finally connected with the “Tap In” artist.
“I seen her on my Explore page,” he explained. “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?’ So I slid in her DM. I told her, ‘You an icy girl, you need a glacier boy.’”
They soon got together for a house party gone wrong, but Quavo later got another shot and impressed his date with dinner and a strip club. The rest was history.
