Husbands-to-be Future and Kanye West give it up for their "trophies" on "I Won," the latest single off Future's upcoming sophomore album, Honest "I Won" is more "Honest" (also produced by Metro Boomin) than the tough-talk of, say, "Move That Dope" or "Covered N Money." It is not, however, a love song. As he explains in an interview with Pitchfork, it's a female empowerment song:
"I Won" is not a love song. It's just me uplifting women in general. I'm giving women the power to treat themselves as a trophy—to show that and know it in yourself and be confident—because when they do that, whoever they're with is winning. I'm not teaching motherfuckers how to love.
Something like a for-the-ladies hybrid of "Trophies" and "You Deserve It," sort of. And Kanye, he's not just celebrating Kim-- it's a family affair: You can look at Kylie, Kim and Kourtney or Khloe, all your mama ever made was trophies, right? (Better luck next time Kendall?) Hype Williams directed video coming soon; just 15 more days until Honest is out April 22 (t-minus 15-days!) and available for pre-order on iTunes tonight at midnight.
