Are "The Future" and "In The Future" the same or 2 different songs?

For those who are unfamiliar with these titles. Jackson collaborated with will.i.am from 2006 to 2008 and they recorded some tracks. And unfortunately, all of them remain unreleased and most of them unfinished. And one of the songs they had recorded is titled "The Future". This song was revealed by will.i.am for the reporters at the Black Eyed Peas press conference in South Korea in August of 2007. But there is another title that is known to be worked between Jackson and will.i.am, "In The Future". And now I'm wondering are they the same song or they are 2 different tracks like "Water" and "H2O"?

I'm also curious about this. Whenever I look up "The Future" I always seem to find these lyrics to a song I've never actually heard any music or snippets for. Something like In the future, I wanna groove with you, girl.. -- it's weird. Someone on YouTube uploaded last March what was supposedly an instrumental of the will.i.am track, although I wouldn't be surprised if it's just that fanmade "The Future" that's made the rounds lately.

To make things more confusing, a supposed snippet of a song called "Future With You" was uploaded to YouTube last month, and as with all these sorts of snippets the uploader seems to know nothing about it other than it's apparently distinct from "The Future" AND "In The Future". Could easily be fake, of course (I think some commenter said the snippet was from 3T's "I Need You" but I personally don't hear the similarities). The snippet's really short (as they often are) and you can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0GAkJ9A7fU
