With their joint project, What A Time To Be Alive, turning 5 this year, fans have been murmuring about a potential collaboration in the works between Drake and Future. The Toronto heavyweight and Atlanta mainstay escalated suspicions when they were seen filming a music video with 21 Savage last month and, more recently, with a cryptic Instagram message.
Taking to the ‘Gram late Sunday night (Jan. 5), Drake seemed to tease a forthcoming collaboration called “Life Is Good.” The photo, which Drizzy shared to his Instagram Story, shows what appears to be a music video screen with the words “Life Is Good” and “Future + Drake.” No further details have been released in regard to when we can expect to hear the collab. However, Drake did respond to one fan who commented “Finally,” writing, “Soon soon.”
Since 21 Savage was left out of the post, it seems that the video the three rappers were seen filming at an Atlanta McDonald’s is unrelated.
The Insta-tease arrived shortly after Drake posted a lengthy message to his Story about his latest single, “War,” which he dropped off at the tail-end of 2019.
“Just wanna say this for my city in regards to the song ‘War.’ My goal is to always uplift and show love to rappers that are buzzing and gaining the world’s attention,” he wrote. “My goal is to use our talks that we all use without having it feel like I am taking sides. My goal is to make anyone feel like with the right songs and the right team and the right amount of drive and focus they can push past the darkness and be able to provide for their people and create a legacy.”
“I understand that there are politics in every city that we can’t deny or escape but I want to be clear on my intentions when I show recognition and support,” he continued. “I pray you all emerge successful and can’t wait to see what artists from Toronto pop off in 2020 and beyond.”
While it’s unclear what politics Drake was addressing, his “War” music video did receive some backlash because he included Canadian woman Marcella Zoia, a controversial figure who became infamous after throwing a chair from the 45th floor of a Toronto building. Some fans called her cameo irresponsible and distasteful.
