Life is Good – Future ft. Drake

Future and Drake are no strangers when it comes to collaborating on featured hits that peak on the Billboard Charts. The pair is notoriously known for their 2015 joint mixtape ‘What a Time to Be Alive,  Drake’s single Used to This (2016), and Blue Tint, released on Drake’s 2018 Scorpion album.

Their newest collaboration is Life is Good, with a video helmed by the prize-winning Director X (Julien Christian Lutz),

Drake opens the song off with “Working on the weekend like usual, way off in the deep end like usual” which is something many can relate to, seeing that many have responsibilities that require them to work for money. 

Future and Drake are seen working a number of jobs while expressing how good life is. Whether it may be working as garbage collectors, fast food employees, fancy chefs, tech advisors, mechanical engineers, or video directors, the pair is seen grooving and having a good time no matter what the grind is. 

This video serves as a reminder to the mass audience that you must find joy in whatever you’re doing. Work doesn’t define who you are as a person, but rather how you view yourself and enjoy your own life.

Will Butler on Writing the Tony-Nominated Music for ‘Stereophonic’: ‘It Was Like a Thousand-Piece Puzzle With 200 Pieces Missing’

The former Arcade Fire member has two nominations for his stunning songs, written for a fictional (but very believable) rock band onstage.

Will Butler’s first meeting with playwright David Adjmi was fairly open-ended: a friend had told Butler that Adjmi — a fan of Arcade Fire, the band Butler was in at the time — was working on a play about a band and that Butler could “write the music or just consult or whatever.”

But from their first sit-down at a diner near New York’s theatre district, Adjmi’s vision was “instantly recognizable” to Butler: “Like, oh, it’s a demo — it’s like a transcendental thing that they can never recapture. You have things falling apart because the headphones sound bad, you have people yelling at each other over music but it’s because of how their dad treated them,” he recalls with a laugh.
