Here's the video for Future's new single, "Honest"; I'd argue it's his best yet. Future Pavarotti blinks back tears in a confessional booth, wails on an all-white grand piano and agonizingly prays into his chains, in what seems like the Château de Versailles as seen through Instagram's Rise filter. Watching, I can't help but think of the Greek myth of Orpheus in the underworld, where Orpheus descends to save his lover Eurydice who has been kidnapped by (ahem) Pluto, the underworld's ruler. Orpheus plays a song for Pluto to coax him into empathy, and the music "drew iron tears down Pluto's cheek."
