Bad news, Future fans who purchased tickets to see the Atlanta rapper open Drake’s Barclays gig: The guy behind the prettiest hooks in hip-hop got kicked off the tour for telling Billboard that the songs on the headliner’s recent album, Nothing Was the Same, is full of hits but not ones that make you want to fall in love. He’s right, of course—even the lush “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is spoiled by the oddly possessive “I know exactly who you could be”—though for many, that’s the appeal. If the hook from “Furthest Thing” doesn’t hit you, you probably gave up on this guy a long time ago. But fear not, lovebirds: Miguel will still be there to romance you with tracks like “#Beautiful” and “Adorn.”
