As one of the top MCs in the game, it's hard to imagine Drake giving anything but his absolute best on any track. But for "Never Satisfied," a collaboration intended for Future's recently released Honest album, the Young Money star wasn't confident enough in his verses so a shortened 1:55 appeared on the LP. Luckily, the song was revealed in full today and we think Drizzy has nothing to be ashamed of.
With production by Mike Will Made It, "Never Satisfied" is a knocking hip hop joint laced with ominous, buzzing synths. Drake actually takes the lead on most of the song with Future's AutoTuned crooning feeling more like an afterthought here.
Since Honest dropped in April, fans wondered why "Never Satisfied" was so short.
"When we did 'Never Satisfied,' we did 'Good Kush and Alcohol' and I ended up giving that to [Lil] Wayne, [it became "Love Me"] and I was like, 'I'm gonna save 'Never Satisfied' for myself,'" Future explained. "Me and Drake, we did four records that night. We actually finished the whole, entire song. But then we went on tour at the beginning of the year and I was about to turn my album in, he was like, 'Man I wanna save my verse, I don't like my verse.' I was just like, man, I couldn't do nothing about it."
Luckily, fans can extend their "Never Satisfied" listening experience with the full version now.
