After celebrating Ciara’s baby shower over the weekend, Future headed back to NYC for work. On Monday, the “Honest” rapper sat down with talk show queen Wendy Williams to chat about his personal and professional life. He confirmed that he and Ciara are expecting a baby boy and opened up about their wedding plans.
He also addressed the confusion over his song “Good Morning,” which sounds a lot like Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love.” Future said that he demoed the Detail production for Bey before recording his version, which will not appear on his sophomore album Honest.
“It’s not on the album because toward the first beginning of the song it’s like the same melody,” explained Future.
Plus, he hit the stage to perform the title track and “Move That Dope.”
On his wedding: “The wedding plans are going great. I’ma let [Ciara] handle the wedding. I’m doing my album. The album’s coming out April 22, so she’s coordinating [the wedding]. Very well. She’s doing a great job at that. I’m just approving everything.”
On settling down with Ciara: “For me, it just gave me balance. You’re doing so much so you can just focus on your career, not chasing girls, chasing different women or whatever.”
On “Drunk in Love”: “I demoed the song with the producer. I demoed it first for her to listen to. I guess she had done the record and she was saving the record. I had did another version, ‘Good Morning,’ because we didn’t know when she was going to put the album out. Then she put it out [in] December, after I was supposed to put my album out in November, it just pushed my song to the side.”
