Future‘s upcoming album Honest is 12 songs long, many of which have already released as singles or leaked for the world to hear. Today, perhaps the Atlanta rapper’s biggest pull on the album in terms of featured artists makes its debut on the web. Make room for Yeezus.
“I Won,” which includes Kanye West in a guest spot, hit the Internet today via Soundcloud. What did Future win? A trophy — and it’s not for his pickup ultimate frisbee league, either.
Future croons the song’s hook in his usual Auto-Tune, singing of the trophy he’s won, boasting about current squeeze Ciara, with whom he’s expecting a child. He then launches into a few verses before West shoots in with a few lines himself — understandably, he’s all about Kim Kardashian on his spot, tossing in a “Bound 2” reference and even throwing out a line about getting his beau “over NBA, NFL players so every time I score it’s like the Super Bowl.”
With production coming from Metro Boomin, the tune’s a bit of a slow-burner, with piano and bouncy percussion.
A music video for the song is coming, according to Rap-Up, with direction from oft-collaborator Hype Williams, who covered West’s “Homecoming,” “Gold Digger” and “All of the Lights” videos.
After being teased for quite some time, Honest is due out April 22 on A1, and it’s touted to also feature Pharrell, Pusha T, Wiz Khalifa, Drake and Andre 3000.
