Future’s ’Mask Off’ Trends After CDC Reveals New Guidelines

5768

Future’s “Mask Off” streams are sure to go through the roof after the latest announcement from the Center for Disease Control. After more than a year of donning masks, the CDC revealed on Thursday (May 13) that fully vaccinated Americans don’t need to wear a mask indoors or outdoors in most situations.

“Mask Off” released in 2017 as part of Future’s self-titled album, but the hit record took on a new meaning once the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020. Outside of those living in southern states such as Texas, Florida, or Mississippi, the latest recommendation from the CDC is a welcomed sight for most Americans.

Fans flocked to Twitter with predictions of “Mask Off” possibly going No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with America inching closer to its new normal after an agonizing year.

“Can’t wait for Mask Off to be the number 1 song in the world so then it will make sense why his name is Future,” one fan wrote. 

“Mask Off” previously peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and fans are hoping to bring the track to new heights as vaccinations rise and COVID-19 cases drop around the country.

About one-third of Americans are fully vaccinated while the U.S. reported its lowest number of cases on Wednesday (May 12) since September 2020 with about 36,000, according to New York Times data.
