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.
