This past week, Future previewed some tracks from his upcoming sophomore album Honest to Billboard.
The article reveals more features that’ll appear on the album. In addition to Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus, the Atlanta rapper is working with Mr. Hudson and Andre 3000. On the production side, he’s gathered esteemed names such as DJ Clue and Mike Will Made It who are helping shape his LP.
“Honest isn’t only about love, but “about showing emotion,” he tells Billboard. “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 went into further detail about his collaboration with Three Stacks. The OutKast member was intrigued to hear the process of his album and told Future he was a big fan. Dre even approved the first title, Future Hendrix, but Future changed it to Honest to avoid any confusion. At the time, Dre announced his involvement in the Jimi Hendrix biopic and the new name ended up being a better fit.
Read the rest of the preview that talks about tracks like “Special,” “Land Of Fire” and more.
UPDATE: Future says he was misquoted regarding Drake and Nothing Was The Same. It has been removed from Billboard‘s original story.
