Think you’re giving an elaborate gift on Valentine’s Day? Sorry, you’ve just been outshined by Future.
The Atlanta rapper today announced a new album, a new tour and a collaboration with Maroon 5. That’s quite the three-course meal, so let’s break this down piece-by-piece.
This Friday, Future is releasing a surprise new self-titled album. Just in time for President’s Day, we have no idea what the album consists of as the songs are all listed as “Track 1,” “Track 2,” etc., but for his first release since last year’s Purple Reign mixtape, he’s probably got a lot to say and a lot of emotions to work through, which is Future just how we like him.
Future has also announced what might be the biggest hip-hop tour of the summer. The Freebandz-sponsored Nobody Safe tour features Migos (
with a dab of ranch), Tory Lanez and Kodak Black. Select dates also feature Young Thug and A$AP Ferg.
Plus, Future’s also featured on the new Maroon 5 single “Cold” that dropped today. His vocals mesh surprisingly well with the Maroon 5 soundscape. For those keeping score at home, Future was given twice the amount of time that Kendrick Lamar received on last year’s Maroon 5 single, “Don’t Wanna Know.”
