Future Performs “Wicked” on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’
Future just performed his “Wicked” track off Purple Reign on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday night (April 14), and you can watch it above. He also dropped the song on iTunes as a single, which you can download right here.
The song, produced by Metro Boomin and Southside, gained a lot of stream since the tape’s release in January. Some think it might have been “Inside the Mattress” or “Salute” that would take off, but it’s “Wicked” that’s proven itself as the most popular track on the mixtape.
With only three and a half months in the book, Future’s had an incredible year so far. Barely a month after dropping Purple Reign for free, he released his EVOL album, complete with the smash hit “Low Life” featuring Weeknd that’s peaked at No. 28 after eight weeks on the Hot 100 chart so far. EVOL sold an impressive 134,000 units first week.
Meanwhile, another storyline is brewing tangential to Future. Brooklyn rapper Desiigner continued to invite comparisons to the Atlanta MC this week when he posted a video to Instagram with the caption #PandaHive, as if to mimic #FutureHive. It’s only the latest in a string of incidents that seem to frame Desiigner as the antagonizer in this non-relationship between the two.
When we asked him about the comparisons, he played it cool. “I smile at that, I blush at that, but I have no hard feelings for the dude Future,” he said. “He does his thing. Actually, I like some of his songs. I think he’s a great artist and I ain’t going to ever turn him down. Just know I have plenty of more music. That’s all I got to say for the people who say I sound like him. Keep tuning in.”
