Future, Metro Boomin and The Weeknd Release “YOUNG METRO”

On the heels of the explosive release of their highly anticipated collaborative album WE DON’T TRUST YOUFuture and Metro Boomin share the official music video for “Young Metro” with The Weeknd. Watch the official music video HERE and get the album at all DSPs HERE.  

WE DON’T TRUST YOU arrived on Friday as a celebration of the historic partnership of two culture-shifting legends at the peak of their powers, nearly breaking the internet in its wake. It officially became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day in 2024 on release day, with 6 songs from the album occupying the entire top 6, including “Like That” at #1. WE DON’T TRUST YOU also dominated Apple Music upon release, where the album landed at #1 and songs from the album occupied the entire top 12. It also occupied the #1 spot on Amazon Music. The duo shared the official music video for “Type Shit” with Travis Scott and Playboi Carti on Friday, where the video has been trending in the top 3 all weekend, as “Like That” trends at #1. 

The duo will next release a second collaborative project on April 12, 2024, and listeners around the world are bracing for impact—two LPs’ worth of Metro’s sinister cinematic soundscapes and Future’s irresistible demon musicality. These projects are a culmination of rap’s most fruitful partnership. Since meeting when Metro was only 17 years old, Hendrix and Metro have penetrated the streets and the pop culture consciousness with engrossing hustler theme songs — stylish anthems that resonate everywhere from the block and beyond.

Most recently, the two connected on Metro’s 2022 album, Heroes & Villains, an all-star LP that flaunted both Metro’s imagination and instinctive flair for the theatrical. Grafting his narcotized trapper hymns onto tracks like “Superhero (Heroes & Villains)” and “Too Many Nights” with Don ToliverFuture reaffirmed his preternatural chemistry with Metro, a synergy that can only come from years in the studio and a hard-earned mastery of their respective crafts.

For his part, Future has been the face of Atlanta hip-hop since the early 2010s, working with icons like Beyoncé and Rihanna on his way to collecting billions of streams and affirming his status as a rap immortal. His most recent album, 2022’s I Never Liked You, was certified platinum. Toiling away in his lair, Metro’s produced for everyone from 21 Savage to the Weeknd and Post Malone, earning a reputation as a shapeshifting dynamo with the prowess to adapt to the style of whichever artist he’s working with. Separately, the two have done incredible work for themselves and alongside other artists. But there’s no stronger creative bond than the one they forged with each other.  

Future and Metro Boomin’s latest collaborations are a continuation of a musical legacy that dates back to “Karate Chop,” an electric 2013 single that birthed the most dynastic hip-hop duo of the 2010s. They’d fortify their connection with tracks like 2015’s “Jumpman” (with Drake) and 2017’s “Mask Off,” singles that have combined to be certified 14-times Platinum by the RIAA. As part of their partnership, Metro even turned a Future bar into an unmistakable producer tag: “If Young Metro don’t trust you I’m gon’ shoot you.”

Now, the duo will cement their legacy thus far and open a new chapter of their rap-conquering alliance with the arrival of the fittingly titled WE DON’T TRUST YOU. Take cover for that, and then again mere weeks later, on April 12, when Future and Metro do it again.
