With over a quarter-billion YouTube views, 7-time BET Award-winning and Grammy® nominated superstar Big Sean has enjoyed a massive career in hip-hop since he emerged in 2011, with his debut album Finally Famous on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music/ Def Jam imprint. The album spun off consecutive top-charted pop/R&B/rap crossover smashes with “My Last” featuring Chris Brown (RIAA gold), “Marvin & Chardonnay” featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash (platinum), and “Dance (A$$)” featuring Nicki Minaj (3x-platinum). Sean was a major collaborator on Kanye’s groundbreaking Cruel Summer album in 2012, and shared multi-platinum success with Kanye on the Grammy®-nominated “Mercy” (also featuring Pusha T and 2 Chainz), and “Clique” (with Jay Z). Sean’s Hall Of Fame album followed in 2013, including “Guap” (platinum) and “Beware” featuring Lil Wayne and Jhené Aiko (gold). Dark Sky Paradise (2015) was Sean’s first platinum and first album to debut #1 on Soundscan. It reigned on the charts with the #1 “IDFWU” featuring E-40 (3×-platinum), “Blessings” featuring Drake and Kanye West (2×-platinum), and “One Man Can Change the World” featuring Kanye West and John Legend (gold). His new album I Decided. (released Feb 2017) debuted at #1 on the momentum of the two pre-order instant great tracks that turned into smash singles, “Bounce Back” (RIAA gold with combined global streaming over 150 million), and “Moves” (combined global streaming over 50 million). Big Sean co-headlined J. Cole’s mammoth 27-city Forest Hills Drive Tour of the U.S. and Canada in July and August with fellow Def Jam MCs YG and Jeremih and recently wrapped up the European leg of the 2016 ANTI tour with label mate Rihanna.
