Future Shares Surprising Opinion About Drake’s ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ Claims His Music Is ‘Better’
Future is opening up on his forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Honest.’ He delves into his personal life, especially about his love for girlfriend Ciara, but he’s also being frank off record too, especially when it comes to his feelings about Drake‘s new LP, ‘Nothing Was the Same.’
“Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do. I want to make you want to fall in love,” Future tells Billboard in a new interview. With a statement like that, things may get a bit awkward on Would You Like a Tour? — Drake’s tour which Future is featured on along with Miguel.
The Auto-Tune-loving rhymer admits that he is really pushing the emotion card on his ‘Honest’ album. With songs like ‘Good Morning, ‘Side-Effects’ and ‘I’ll Be There Baby,’ he shows off his softer side as well as the height of his sex drive. One song that seems to stand out at the moment is ‘Real & True,’ which is a song he did with Mr. Hudson and Miley Cyrus.
The collaboration between Future and Miley isn’t a new one. According to the rapper, he’s worked on a number of songs for her new LP, ‘Bangerz’ and is even featured on a track. “She’s a big star,” he says of the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer. “Her MTV performance took it to another level. It’s like she planned it, but she’s going along with whatever is happening.”
Overall, Future is confident in his craft and his collaborations — maybe a little too much. “I’ve been on the songs of all these rappers that put out an album, and my music is still better,” he states.
