TINASHE AND FUTURE’S NEW SONG IS A TWILIGHT-READY SLOW JAM 

MTV-  

After a three-year delay, Tinashe is gearing up to release Joyride, the official follow-up to her excellent 2014 debut, Aquarius. We’ve already heard the album’s lead single — the Offset-featuring “No Drama” — and on Monday (February 12), Tinashe shared another promising track, “Faded Love.”  

This one finds her reuniting with Future, who appeared on the Aquariuscut “How Many Times.” Producer Stargate supplies the glitchy beat and murky synths, while Tinashe dreamily croons, “Don't give me your name / I don't need your number saved in my phone/ Just follow me, follow me, follow me, follow me home.” Future pops up toward the climax with an Auto-Tuned verse in which he promises, “We so spiritually connected / We going in the right direction.”

Speaking to Beats 1, Tinashe said of the twilight-ready tune, “‘Faded Love’ is kind of more muted, it's a little bit more R&B, it's a little more sensual, mid-tempo.” 

The singer also assured host Zane Lowe that Joyride is all but ready to go. She said, “It is done. My recording is done. I’m in the mixing process right now. … Our tracklist has been submitted. So it’s real! It’s really real.” 

We’ll believe it when we see it, T! In the meantime, see her talk all things Joyride with MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson in the revealing interview below.

Future & Young Thug's "Super Slimey" First Week Sales Projections: Report 

HNHH- The album will likely give Young Thug his highest sales week to date.

The first week sales projections for Future and Young Thug's surprise project Super Slimey are in. According to Hits Daily Double, the project is expected to move 85,000 to 110,000 equivalent album units this week, with 20,000 to 30,000 of that figure being sold traditionally. It is expected to be kept out of the No. 1 spot by former One Direction singer Niall Horan, whose debut solo album is expected to sell 150,000 to 160,000 equivalent album units. However, it could very likely take the No. 2 slot. 

If the album does break 100,000 in sales, it will be Future's third album in 2017 to do so. Between February and March, Future posted two No. 1 albums in two consecutive weeks with FUTURE and HNDRXX, selling 140,000 equivalent album units and 121,000 equivalent album units, respectively. Meanwhile it is more or less guaranteed to be Young Thug's highest sales week of all time. The rapper's highest sales week to date came with 2017's Beautiful Thugger Girls with moved 37,000 album equivalent units and debuted at No. 8. 

The album was announced only hours before it was released across streaming services and on iTunes Friday at 12AM EST.  

Young Thug and Future have collaborated on a number of songs in the past, reaching back to "My Everything" from Thug's I Came From Nothing 2 mixtape. Earlier this year, they came together for "Relationships," which appeared on Beautiful Thugger Girls. Future previously released a similarly surprising collaborative album with Drake, What A Time To Be Alive, which sold 375,000 equivalent album units upon its release in 2015.

FUTURE & DRAKE SUED FOR $25M 

Future & Drake Sued For $25M By Woman Reportedly Raped At Concert 

A 28-year-old woman is reportedly suing Drake and Future for $25 million after she was allegedly raped after their Nashville, Tennessee concert at the Bridgestone Arena last August. 

According to The Tennesseean, the unidentified woman was viciously attacked by 38-year-old Leavy Johnson after he told her he could get her backstage to meet both artists. Johnson claimed he was an employee at the venue. As soon as they were alone, he reportedly pushed her down in a corner and raped her.

Johnson was indicted for rape in January and after evading police for months, he was finally found in Tampa, Florida. He was arrested, extradited back to Nashville and charged with rape in May. 

The alleged victim believes Drake, Future and arena employees should’ve known Johnson had outstanding warrants for assault at the time of the alleged attack, and potentially posed a threat to the public. 

Drake and Future have not addressed the allegations.

 

Future ft Nicki Minaj- Rich Friday 

The video everyone has been talking about, Future and Nicki Minaj has dropped!


Now I have one statement and 3 questions. 
LYRICAL JAMS on Youtube posted the lyrics and song to this video on September 11, 2013 featuring Juelz Santana, French Montana and Nicki Minaj. So how does this work, you can now reuse a song that's already been heard, in a 2017 mixtape as well as finally drop a music video to it? Did he have to buy it from DJ Clue first? Maybe he's been working on HNDRXX for 4 years?
