Future kicked off 2019 in style with the release of his seventh studio album The WIZRD, getting more introspective than ever before in the lead up to it dropping with a number of interviews. Now the Atlanta rapper is giving project an extra push with the video for one of the record's many highlights, "Rocket Ship."
Produced by ATL Jacob, who worked on seven songs across the LP, "Rocket Ship" is Future at his streamlined best. It's the perfect type of minimal beat for his delivery, and the Uncle Leff-directed video matches the eerie vibe of the track itself. The stripped-back visual sees the rapper in the back of a shipping container accompanied by a number of masked guys on bikes, complete with a grainy look and some gritty lighting.
The projected first-week numbers for Future's The WIZRD are looking super solid and it's expected to become the first 2019 release to top the Billboard 200. The WIZRD is reportedly expected to move between 120,000 to 130,000 units with 10,000 to 12,000 pure sales. The WIZRD is Future's last project to be released by Epic Records, he explained in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “It’s a long road, heading down this road I know how to maneuver down," he said. "I know how to detour off this road, also. That’s The WIZRD.”
