Produced by DJ Clue and featuring a sample of Michael's 'Careless Whisper', the track failed to make the cut to Future's 'Honest' album after the British singer didn't clear the sample.
Fans finally get to listen to Future's collaboration with Nicki Minaj, "Rockstar". Premiered by XXL on Wednesday, July 9, the track that features a sample of George Michael's 1984 hit "Careless Whisper" was originally planned to be featured in his "Honest" album. It failed to make the cut because the British singer didn't clear the sample.
Produced by DJ Clue, the mid-tempo number features Future bragging about his life as a star. "All my ice and all my trees, all my b**ches in love with me/ Rockstar life, the life we lead, surrounded by rock stars," he sings the catchy hook.
Meanwhile, Minaj talks about being the best in the game and being a trendsetter. "Ain't a bitch in the game that'll do what I does on it/ Be clear, cover Marie Claire/ Million dollar show in India, she's there/ My own drink, Moscato Myx now/ They seen Freaks so it's pasties on they tits now," she raps.
"Honest" was released in April. Including Future's collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Pusha T, Drake and Kanye West among others, the record peaked at No. 2 on Billboard 200.
