Ever heard the term ‘dull energy’. Well, we somewhat just invented this term for the song Life is Good. Do not get it wrong. You will understand how the term resonates with the song when you will listen to it. We can say that the song is iconic. Two powerhouses Future and the Drake again collaborated and nailed it. The song is a general take on life. It is about the challenges it throws on us but overall life is good. The song is the third single from the American rapper Future’s 8th studio album High off Life. It features our very own Champagne Pappi, the Canadian rapper Drake.

The Song Review
The Power-packed Collaboration!
Life is Good made its way to YouTube on January 20, 2020, and now has over 1.9 billion views. The collaboration of Drake and Future channeled the core momentum to this track. Their collaboration always takes off. In fact, they have been collaborating since the year 2011.
Before Life is good, the two artists came together for the 2018 hit release, Blue Tint. However, the song garnered mixed reviews. In fact, for many, the song was a bit off!
A Slur Song with Dull Energy that Seems like Two Separate Songs
Let us expand a bit more on this term. Something stands out about this song. You will sense energy; still, it keeps you feeling low. The song has reused various verses from Future’s previous songs. In addition, the change of beat and tune was not good at all. At first, you get to listen to Drake’s smooth yet striking part that keeps you going.
All of a sudden, it changes into a plan trap song. We think that is where the song got off track. It makes it seem literally like two separate songs. For us, the transitional phase was a little bad and made it into a slur.
The critics observed pointed out the same thing. Critics at Billboard wrote, “Structuring the song into two halves, Drake performing the first half and Future performing the latter, each with a different beat, reminded of Drake’s previous feature for Travis Scot”. However, Billboard liked how the vocals of the two artists complemented each other.
Let us now talk about the song’s commercial performance.
Life is Good – Commercial Performance
