Recently christened “the best rapper alive” by GQ, Future proudly presents his anxiously awaited ninth full-length and the most anticipated album of 2022, I Never Liked You, today. Listen to I Never Liked You HERE via Freebandz/Epic Records.
To celebrate the arrival of the record, The GRAMMY® Award-winning, diamond-certified icon just uncovered the event-level music video for “Keep It Burnin” [feat. Kanye West]. Watch the music video HERE. Bound to set the internet on fire, the cinematic clip continues a tradition of blockbuster visuals for Future whose total career YouTube views have exceeded 8 billion and counting.
The album stands out as Future’s first body of work since 2020’s platinum-selling High Off Life, which emerged as his sixth consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200. He stacks I Never Liked You with powerhouse anthems. The single “Wait For U” [feat. Drake & Tems] showcases the emotional side of Future, and is an instantly quotable anthem, while he also links with Drake yet again for “I’m On One.” He continues showcasing his most emotional and honest songwriting yet with the crooning solo cut “Love U Better,” while Atlanta stands up with the raucous and raw “For A Nut” [feat. Young Thug & Gunna], and “Voodoo” [feat. Kodak Black] conjures an unbreakable spell of its own. The album concludes with “Back to the Basics,” marking a full circle moment for the hip hop titan. These sixteen tracks seal the record’s status as the biggest and boldest release of the year.
Some artists blur genres, but French Montana blurs borders. His inimitable fusion of classic East Coast rhymes, wavy pop swagger, and international ambition elevated him to the forefront of the game on a global scale. 2017 saw him ascend to superstar status with the blockbuster smash “Unforgettable” [feat. Swae Lee], which cemented him in the “Billion Club” for streaming and earned a nine-times platinum certification from the RIAA. Meanwhile, his sophomore effort, JUNGLE RULES, went and dominated the charts and his 2019 album MONTANA was certified gold immediately upon release. He closed 2020 with the release of the long-anticipated CB5 (Coke Boys 5) mixtape, continuing a legacy he started over a decade ago. Now, he takes it to the next level with his latest effort They Got Amnesia.
