Future’s been making tender crossover ballads for years, but “Real and True”—a monogamy-celebrating prom song that’s smartly pegged to Future and Ciara’s engagement—is the first one that will make it to the pop charts. No one does wide-eyed, goose-bumped pillow talk quite like Future does. Here, assisted by Miley Cyrus, Mr. Hudson and mastermind producer Mike WiLL Made It, his lyrics are stubbornly innocent, if sung with more clarity than ever before: I can never be scared of commitment/ I can prevail through life without being malicious/ I can’t hold you full responsible for your mischief/ I hope you will never hurt me with vengeance. Listen above via Ryan Seacrest, then buy on iTunes. I wish it was Future and not Mr. Hudson on that second chorus, though; wish the song’s concluding, guttural coo was just a couple notes longer.
