Social Media Calls Future ‘Petty’ After He Seemingly Sampled “Promise” On “Shotgun”
Social media is calling out Future for being “petty,” as he seemingly sampled his ex-fiancee Ciara‘s 2006 song “Promise” on his new track “Shotgun,” via his latest EP ‘Save Me.’
Immediately after the Atlanta rapper dropped the project early Friday (June 7) morning, fans questioned the similarities between the melodies; with one Twitter user stating, “Future’s PETTY for this Ciara ‘Promise’ sample, but that makes me like it #Shotgun.”
While CiCi isn’t listed in the credits, another user tweets, “Future really got ‘Promise’ by Ciara cleared for the sample on ‘Shotgun’ lmaooo a toxic king,” as a third writes, “Future put both feet on the gas petal & pushed the savage engine horsepower to the max when he sampled Ciara’s song on shotgun.”
