To say Big Sean is on a roll is a ridiculous understatement. The videos for “One Man Can Change the World”, “I Know”, “All Your Fault”, and now “Play No Games” have all been released within the last ten days. Whatever he’s doing, it’s working for him. Dark Sky Paradise has been wildly successful and the “Martin” inspired visual for the new song is the cherry on top. Big Sean took a feelgood track and made it even better with this fun flashback of one of his favorite shows. Vibe out with the video below.
Big Sean can’t stop, won’t stop. Last week, he released a moving video for “One Man Can Change the World”, and now this week two more tracks off Dark Sky Paradise have assigned visuals. First up is “I Know” with strong supporting vocals from Jhene Aiko, who is featured on the album twice. The video features Big Sean and Ms. Aiko as senior citizens (thanks to a makeup artist who deserves an award) going on an adventure.
Next up is “All Your Fault” with another twice-featured Dark Sky Paradise guest: Yeezus himself. The video is more than just Kanye and Big Sean in a club. It’s a deep look at the two MCs representing a type of synergy and swag that can only happen in hip-hop. As they switch off, facing each other and calling and responding on the third verse, so closely that they could share a microphone, we’re reminded of where it all started. We can reminisce about the old school style battle rap and feel like we’re in an underground 1980s New York club, but we can also celebrate the undeniable musical chemistry that these two have in 2015.
Big Sean has gotten more personal with his sound, taking a minute away from the glamour and shine of his newer lifestyle. His video campaign for ‘One Man Can Change Detroit’ partnered with Adidas has brought some love back to his hometown and touched on his roots.

Before the European leg of his tour, Big Sean returned to his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. Together with adidas originals, he presented the opening of the ‘Sean Anderson Studio of Infinite Possibilities’ music studio in his alma mater Cass Technical High School.

Check it all out in the clip below.

The countdown to February 24th is on, and Big Sean has given his fans some previews of his new album Dark Sky Paradise to hold them over until its official release. “Win Some, Lose Some” features Jhené Aiko and includes her typical smooth crooning over Big Sean’s lyrics. “One Man Can Change The World” is an uplifting track over beautiful piano, supported by equally beautiful vocals from John Legend and Kanye West. It also includes a touching excerpt of a conversation between Big Sean and his grandmother at the end of the track. If the rest of the album is anything like these two tracks, we can’t wait to hear more. Listen to the two tracks below.
