In less than four days, Future is set to release his new album I Never Liked You.
After announcing the album title, he has shared a preview of his collaboration with Kanye West, reportedly titled “Keep It Burning.”
“Cross me so much, I got nails in my hand / City on fire,” Ye raps in the video trailer before Hndrxx sets it off on his verse.
The song originally appeared on an early version of Ye’s DONDA 2, which Future executive produced, before it was removed from the album.

In his GQ cover story, Future opened up about his friendship with Ye. “Me and Kanye always had a relationship,” he said. “But it’s hard for people to understand, because I don’t put everything on Instagram. Kanye flew me to Paris in 2011 or 2012 to work on music. [Discussing] his clothing line before it came, his shoe business before it came. People don’t know I’ve been able to go to his house, and pull up right into the crib. We just never talked about it.”
The full song drops Friday alongside I Never Liked You, which is also expected to include collaborations with FKA twigs and Babyface Ray. Earlier in the week, Future revealed the cover art.
“Putting this project together is just people understanding that I love hard. Probably love the hardest,” he told GQ. “I wanted to showcase my skills as far as melodies and topics and being vulnerable.”
