Future Scored Another Number Song, In 2021
Future has been relatively quiet, for his own music releases, this year. He did appear on Drake’s new “Certified Lover Boy” album, in September, though. This was on the “Way 2 Sexy” song, which also included Young Thug. It wasn’t initially a lead single, but was so huge, that it went on to debut at number one, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Way 2 Sexy is also already certified gold.
Future was very consistent in 2020, as he released two albums. One was “High Off Life,” which became his eighth consecutive number one album. At the end of the year, he collaborated with Lil Uzi Vert, on the “Pluto x Baby Pluto” album, which debuted at number two.
Future Split With Lori Harvey Last Year
Future was also known for dating Lori Harvey, from late 2019, to mid-2020. The two quietly broke things off at the end of that summer, but Future decided to throw some shade, this year. In May, he subliminally dissed Lori, on 42 Dugg’s “Maybach” single, where he said “Tell Steve Harvey, I don’t want her.” Steve is Lori’s father. Currently, Lori is dating star actor, Michael B. Jordan, and has been with him, for over a year now. The two also recently spent Thanksgiving with him, as Lori posted various photos and videos of the two, together.
