Future - Selfish (ft. Rihanna)

The stand-out slow-burner on an album of shadowy, gloom-drenched rap.

Only a fool would doubt Rihanna’s ability to nail a feature (take ‘All of the Lights,’ ‘Live Your Life,’ ‘Run this Town,’ ‘Love the Way You Lie’ and ‘Take Care’ as prime examples) and yet again, ‘Selfish’ – from Future’s brand new record ‘HNDRXX’ – delivers with more panache than an incredibly welcome pizza dispatch from your local. “Let’s not be alone tonight, let’s be selfish,” RiRi suggests alongside peppy snare-claps and synthetic yelps, Future’s falsetto falling into rank behind her. The stand-out slow-burner on an album of shadowy, gloom-drenched rap, ‘Selfish’ might not be as immediate as Rihanna’s previous guest moments. But still, propelled by the potent darkness of ‘ANTI’ this proves a stand-out moment from ‘HNDRXX’ all the same.
