Low Life is a song by the American rapper Future featuring The Weeknd released on 1st March 2016 as the lead single from Future’s 4th studio album ‘Evol’.
Song Review and Meaning
Future and The Weeknd might come off as different personalities. However, they are both more or less the same when it comes to their lifestyle. In the song, both artists talk about their hedonistic lifestyle which includes dr*gs, sex, squandering lavish amounts of money.
They have no remorse behind the selfish actions they take which can hurt others and have found some sort of solace in living the ‘low life’. The term ‘low life’ is used as it describes their immoral practices. It is not referring to their wealth status as we know that they have plenty.
Personally, I am fond of beats and instrumentals in Future as well as The Weeknd’s songs. This song definitely lived up to my expectations. The background instrumentals are absolute fire. In terms of rhythm I feel like it is one of the best songs I’ve come across.
I like the music video as well. The setting of the music video is mostly in a dark warehouse with a little bit of lighting where Future and The Weeknd rap about their hedonistic lifestyle in the presence of a few chicks that will keep the attention of the male audience. We also see them driving around a desert area with a little bit of construction in a custom vehicle which is armed with a gun in front.
I really like the song. Let me know what you guys think of the song.
