The rap superstars returned Thursday night with their collaborative single "Life Is Good." The record, produced by Oz and D. Hill, arrived less than a week after Drizzy began teasing their reunion in his two-hour interview with Rap Radar: "We’re always working, we’re always working," he said, when asked about the rumored collaboration. "We got some stuff."
Fast-forward to this past weekend, when the Toronto rapper shared an Instagram photo of a laptop screen that displayed the "Life Is Good" title above his and Future's name.
Hendrix fueled fan excitement Wednesday when he posted an Instagram video of him and Drake showing off their $400,000 OVO/Freebandz chains with the words "Life Is Good" sprawled across the front.
It was initially unclear what Drake and Future had in store. But whatever it was, Drake reassured fans that it was arriving "soon."
Thankfully, he wasn't lying. Not only did Future deliver the highly anticipated track Thursday night, he also came through with its official video directed by Director X.
The visual shows the rappers taking on regular 9-to-5s, working as sales associates in a smartphone store, mechanics in an auto repair shop, and behind the counters at a fast-food joint. We got a glimpse of the latter scenes several weeks ago, when video taken from the shoot surfaced online.
After the track was released, some speculated that Drake was referencing his beefs with Kanye West when he rapped "N**gas gotta move off my release day, huh" and Pusha-T with the line "N**gas caught me slippin' once, okay, so what?"
"Life Is Good" is available to stream now on all major platforms, including Apple Music and Spotify. You can check out the song's official video—which includes cameos by Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Mike Will Made-It, and Big Bank Black—above.
Some fans suspect the song would appear on the sequel to What a Time to Be Alive—Drake and Future's 2015 joint project. The duo may have hinted at the effort back in April 2019, when they took to Instagram Live, referencing the No. 2.
"What's that? We gotta cook that up," Drake tells the camera with Future by his side. "That two."
Drake and Future have yet to confirm a WATTBA sequel release, but the recent developments are reassuring. In the meantime, you can cop some "Life Is Good" merch, creatively directed by Fred Foster, here.
