Album: Purple Reign

The song so nice he placed it twice. “Wicked,” which Metro co-produced with Southside, first popped up on Purple Reign, the tape Future dropped with little warning in January. When Epic later decided to push it as a single, it was retroactively added to EVOL, the record Future put out in February (the logic presumably being that EVOL is a quote-unquote album that was issued to streaming services). In one of the grimmest pieces of trivia in recent memory, the Wikipedia page for “Wicked,” which is less than 250 words in total, notes that the song was being played during the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
