The 2014 installment of Adult Swim’s Singles Program has already featured Giorgio Moroder’s disco grooves, jangly alt-rock from Speedy Ortiz, earnest electro-soul courtesy of Machinedrum, and Sleep’s first new song in 20 years. Today, Auto-Tune aficionado Future offers up his contribution to the series with “Coupe”.
Production wise, the track would have been right at home on Future’s latest LP, Honest. The tip-toeing piano and rattling trap bass occupy a similar aesthetic and approach to that of “Move That Dope”. The biggest takeaway, however, is the storyline of the track’s accompanying animated video. Future spends a lively night flossing in exotic cars and hanging out with what appears to be Ultraman— until his mother catches him. That’s how I like my balling rap tunes, ladies and gents, with a side of self-deprecation.
