In February, Future released his EVOL album, which features The Weeknd on a track called “Low Life.” According to the rapper’s Snapchat account, the two were recently shooting a video for their collaboration.
In addition to Future’s behind-the-scenes clip of the shoot, he also shared a photo on Instagram. The picture shows the Atlanta rhymer and the Grammy-winning crooner under dimly lit lights.
Rapper French Montana stopped by the set as well and posted his own photo on IG. It’s unclear whether he was just there for moral support or if he’ll be making a cameo.
Future is currently celebrating the success of his surprise album EVOL, which followed his Purple Reign mixtape released in January. EVOL earned him his third No. 1 on the Billboard 200. According to Nielsen Music, EVOL launched with 134,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 11. It is his third No. 1 album in less than seven months.
Last July, Future charted his first No. 1 album thanks to DS2. The album moved 131,500 actual albums, more than double what his sophomore album Honest sold during spring of 2014. The project initially took the title as Future's most successful album yet. DS2 was followed by What A Time to Be Alive, his joint album with Drake, which also topped the charts in September.
Future is on the road for his Purple Reign tour with Ty Dolla $ign and is gearing up to make his SNL debut on Saturday (March 5). Fans can only speculate which songs the “Where Ya At” rapper will perform during his stint on SNL. Maybe he’ll bring out The Weeknd as a surprise guest and perform "Low Life." Or maybe he'll pull a Kanye West and announce the video's premiere mid performance.
