On the balcony with Big Sean
It’s been 5 days since Big Sean released his 14 track, 4th studio album I Decided; that’s plenty of time to decide whether we’re going to trash it or gas it. I don’t know about you but I’ve had it in constant rotation. The fact that Sean and I are both West Side Detroit natives has nothing to do with how I feel about this album, or him as an artist. Don’t believe me? Well let me confess to you… outside of his joint effort TWENTY88 with current lover and friend Jhene Aiko, I have never listened to a Big Sean album! Yeah we all know he’s dope but I honestly couldn’t vibe with his voice. Petty or nah? Nevertheless, this artist is set to earn his second No. 1 LP, expecting to move 120,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 9.
“The story of the album is: imagine you went through life and you made all the wrong decisions your whole life,” he said. “So the album is basically a chance of like having that wisdom of an old man while you’re young and going through life and figuring it out.” – Big Sean (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon)
He also released an eye opening visual for my favorite track on the album Halfway Off the Balcony, second only to Jump Out the Window where he makes a powerful statement “The question isn’t whether he loves you. The question is do you love yourself?” Those that are cuffed, take heed to that! Check it out below and show your support with your coin here.
