Beyonce really knew what she was doing when she picked Jay Z-assisted sex jam “Drunk In Love” as the lead single from her chart-busting fifth album. The infectious anthem owns R&B radio and roared into the iTunes top five post-Grammy performance. Oh and Vin Diesel even filmed himself doing the choreography, so you know the track hit a nerve in pop culture.
Following in the footsteps of Angel Haze, who dropped a cover earlier in the week, Future has joined the song’s growing fan club by recording his own version of Bey and Jay’s TMI love letter. And like the femcee, he takes over both parts and does a fairly good job of personalizing it — putting a distinctly male spin on “Drunk In Love”. (Let’s just say some of his lyrics make Hov sound prudish). Listen to the rapper’s unexpected cover after the jump.
Did Future do a good job with this? You be the judge in the comments below.
