Metro Boomin says that his collaborative album with Future will be his next project. When asked what he’ll be working on after the release of his Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack, Metro further teased the upcoming joint album.
“So now that the soundtrack is out… when’s the album with Future,” one user asked Metro on Twitter. He replied: “Next up,” without giving any additional details.
Metro Boomin With Future
Metro first teased the idea of dropping a full project with Future following the release of the rapper’s 2022 album I NEVER LIKED YOU, on which Metro is noticeably absent. Speaking with Ebro Darden, he explained why the two didn’t link up for the album. “Let me tell you why. [Future] actually finished most of the album at my studio in LA,” he told Darden at the time. “That’s my brother, but we’re working on some things. At first, we were going to put a couple of songs with me and him on the album, but we had took them off because I had talked to him. I was like, ‘Look, the last time anybody’s really heard a song from me and you was ‘Mask Off.’ So instead of us randomly throwing one or two songs we did on here, we got to wait and just give them a joint.’”
Things cooled off for a time as Metro worked on the Across the Spider-Verse soundtrack, but earlier this year, he confirmed that the collaborative album will drop by the end of 2023.
Metro Boomin On His Future Collaboration
Metro and Future have worked together numerous times over the years. While performing together at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in January, Metro reflected on their relationship. “You know, Pluto, that’s my brother. We’ve been at it for a long time. This whole superhero moment, it’s like the beginning of our phase two,” he said. “We haven’t had a song out since ‘Mask Off,’ they’ve been on our heads. With this, and then the whole State Farm thing, it’s starting to slowly put people on notice: we crankin’ that shit back up too.”
