Future Professes ‘No Love’ on Secretly Heartbroken New Song
Chiming New Age beats and sad manly declarations
As noted in our Real Hottest MCs in the Game list, Future has “shoved hip-hop into the eye of a storm of melodramatic love and longing.” As unlikely as it seems, even when the Atlanta Auto-Tuner sing-raps about how he’s “never made love,” what’s meant to be a stubbornly masochistic boast winds up sounding like a heartbroken admission of one guy’s inability to truly connect with his in-bed sparring partners. New song “No Love” is certainly helped along by the left-field xylophone hits and New Age atmospherics that enhance all of that computerized vocal melancholy.
But if Future can’t fall for a woman, what is he truly connecting with these days? As he recently told SPIN, “Right now I just love the studio. I go on vacation, I have to have a studio, or make sure one is close by. I don’t like going nowhere if it don’t have a studio. I love it that much. That’s what I do. I wanna make sure I do it forever. Every day.”
Future is currently prepping his second album, Future Hendrix
