At long last, the toxic king has returned to his throne. On Feb. 11, Future released his first solo single since 2020 with “Worst Day,” a self-reflective, melancholic Valentine’s Day anthem for men involved with multiple partners.
With strong claps and a subtle guitar riff loop, “Worst Day” sees Future dwell on his many romances because Feb. 14 is a day where they all come to him looking for gifts and affection. Rather than delivering hubris, Future conveys an overwhelmed attitude on the track.
Valentine’s Day, the worst day, got too many to please
I popped a half a pink pill, and put my mind at ease
I bought you all these gifts, chain your heart all in pieces
Try to pass out new whips, yeah, but all you want is me“Worst Day” — Future
As it was revealed days before the release, the visuals for “Worst Day” feature a skit where Future has a conversation with fellow toxicity advocate YouTuber Kevin Samuels. The discussion about Future’s obsessive and unhinged behavior about spoiling women leads into him celebrating the Valentine’s holiday with a significant other, as she rejoices in her gifts while he laments his issues.
While this new single shows Future not as “high off life” as his last album proclaimed, he does tend to create some of his best art when he is contemplative.

Future reveals cover art for upcoming “Worst Day” single
There seems to be a Future shortage in hip-hop as of late.
Despite the Atlanta trap kingpin’s efforts on some of the biggest hits of the last year — including Gunna‘s “Too Easy,” “Pushin P” and Drake‘s “Way 2 Sexy” — fans have not received solo Future music since 2020’s High Off Life.
However, there is now light at the end of the tunnel. On Wednesday (Feb. 9), Future posted the cover art for his new single “Worst Day,” which will reportedly release on Friday (Feb. 11).
He first began teasing the song when he released a trailer which shows him having a therapeutic conversation with none other than Kevin Samuels — a YouTuber famed for his controversial, provocative and toxic relationship takes, much like Future’s.
As these two share a similar brand, their talk consists of Future admitting his addiction of spoiling women and splurging on designer clothes. While a faint snippet of “Worst Day” plays at the end of the video, the text reads that the song is “coming soon.”
Earlier in the week, Samuels announced his collaboration with Future, and said the song should be out before Valentine’s Day, which leads fans to expect “Worst Day” will arrive on Friday.
As we gear up for Future’s upcoming era, likely containing all the toxicity of his previous ones, check out the teaser for “Worst Day” below.
