FUTURE TEASES NEW ALBUM & FILMS MUSIC VIDEO WITH KANYE WEST

Future has been enjoying his time away from the mic, but his return to the spotlight is imminent.
That’s right, Future Hendrix hopped on Twitter with a message to excite fans for what’s to come.
People have been waiting for something new since Future dropped High Off Life in 2020, but he opted for a handful of features with artists such as Drake, Gunna, Lil Durk and more. With all the teasers he’s been dropping, though, Future is looking to make his official return a special one.
“Scooter said drop the album this month,” the rapper tweeted. “Major heat coming fast. Stay ready stay woke.”
The post comes a few months after the last update on his album, which arrived in January when Metro Boomin posted a picture of himself and his “Jumpman” collaborator in the studio. The hype was taken to another level sometime after when Future followed Metro’s post with a video of himself listening to an unreleased track that could pop up on the album.
The Gucci flip flop wearer had fans scrambling when he unleashed a new single titled “Worst Day,” an anti-Valentine’s Day anthem in February. The song serves as the first solo material from Future since dropping High Off Life. The official music video had Future receive some assistance realizing he has a problem spending money on women from the controversial Dr. Kevin Samuels.
As Future spoke with Samuels in a segment called “Healing Together” in the video, the rapper took fans on a trip down memory lane where he goes on multiple dates with women and splurges on them.
Also, Future has dropped several teasers for the project over the last few months, including teasing its imminent release on Twitter earlier this week. The latest hint suggests there’ll be at least one A-list collaboration on the upcoming record.
On Tuesday (April 5), Freebandz rapper Young Scooter posted a short clip on his Instagram Stories of Future filming a music video with Kanye West. “@future @kanyewest THIS TO HARD IM ABOUT TO LEAK IT ALBUM SOON,” Scooter captioned the footage, which shows the duo posted up in a dimly-lit room wearing all-black outfits.
Future added more fuel to the fire by reposting the clip on his own Instagram Story, adding, “Ima have album date this week jus holdup .. YE SPAZZED ON DIS SHIT.”
After linking up on “I Won” back in 2014, Future and Kanye West have forged a closer relationship in recent years. Ye came out as a special guest during the Atlanta native’s Rolling Loud California set in December, before recruiting the Dirty Sprite don to executive produce his latest album DONDA 2.
While the Stem Player-exclusive album has yet to be released in full, Hendrix appears on several tracks including “Pablo” and “Happy.” It appears Kanye will return the favor on Future’s upcoming project, which he continued to hype up on Twitter on Tuesday night.
“Getting ready to DROP,” Future wrote in one tweet, before adding, “When the album drop ain’t no being humble…Da biggest [eagle].”
Future’s upcoming album will serve as the follow-up to his 2020 effort, High Off Life. Featuring appearances from Drake, Travis Scott, Young Thug and more, the project earned Pluto his seventh consecutive solo No. 1 after earning 153,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
