Future premiered his new video “Wicked” today (September 2) and it is exactly what the title claims.
There’s a storm brewing in the background of “Wicked,” which lends the video an ominous feeling thanks to the lightning’s strobe light-like effect. Between the quick lighting and the fast-paced editing, it’s hard to make out exactly what’s going on at times, but that’s the way Future wants it. Images come fast and the eye takes in coffins, a group dancing and a girl showing off her floor twerking skills before the mind can even really process it.
With this newest visual treatment, Future wants to create a mood rather than a narrative, and he does exactly that.
“Wicked” appears as an extra track the streaming version of Future’s 2016 studio album EVOL.
