Watch Future Debut Honest Outtake “Good Morning” At SXSW
Future shows tend to be orgies of hits, and his set yesterday, headlining the SPIN party at Stubb’s, was mostly that: A thunderous “Bugatti,” an even more thunderous “Same Damn Time,” cameos from B.o.B. and Bun B. But he also did a couple of new songs: The intro track to his forthcoming album Honest and “Good Morning,” another song that didn’t make the album at all. Talking to the crowd, Future said that he’d been working on the song with producer Detail and that it was one of his favorites. But Detail also worked on Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love,” and there were serious parallels between both songs. Maybe Details used the same beat for both songs, or maybe the two just sounded too similar. Future only said that “Drunk In Love” came along and stole the song’s thunder, not that the song was the original “Drunk In Love,” though maybe it’s that, too. He also said that he’d never performed the song before and that he’ll probably never do it again, so unless it leaks, this is presumably our only chance to hear it.
UPDATE: Future’s released the studio version…
Honest is out 4/22 on Epic.
