There’s a Creed movie coming out. No, it’s not about the execrable band Creed, although to be quite honest that might be a more daring feat than another Rocky movie, which is exactly what this is. Thankfully, in the seventh installment of the boxing franchise, Sylvester Stallone doesn’t enter the ring. Instead, his Rocky Balboa character trains Apollo Creed’s son Adonis, played by Michael B. Jordan. Maybe it’ll be good, who knows. But at least it has given us some new Future.

The ATL rapper has been prolific this year, and he can add soundtrack cut “Last Breath” to his list of accomplishments. The song was produced by Future’s frequent collaborator Metro Boomin and Ludwig Goransson, and they flipped a sample of the iconic Rocky theme “Gonna Fly Now,” resulting in that increasingly rare beast, the uplifting Future song.

Hear it below.
