No, Future Did Not Cut The André 3000 Track From His New Album

Future’s long-awaited album Honest is streaming, without two of its best songs. Don’t worry — they’re still on the album.

1. Future’s big sophomore album, featuring Kanye West, Drake, and Pharrell, is dropping next week.

2. Today, MTV shared a stream of the album.

3. But MTV’s “full” album stream is weirdly incomplete, featuring only 16 of the album’s 18 songs.

4. It’s notably missing “Benz Friendz (Whatchutola),” the duet with André 3000 that Future performed with OutKast at Coachella this past Friday.

“Special,” a collaboration with Atlanta rapper Young Scooter, is also absent from the stream.

5. But a rep for Future confirms that those songs are “definitely on the record.”

6. Album streams are usually given exclusively to one platform. In a somewhat unusual move, Future’s record label spread their assets, offering exclusives to more than one place.

“The label gave ‘Benz Friendz’ and ‘Special,’ exclusively to Beats Music for their pre-stream,” the rep told BuzzFeed. A publicist for Epic, Future’s label, confirmed: “Beats Music will be debuting that record.”
