Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Pusha T, Childish Gambino and Jay Z partied with Big Sean last night at his Dark Sky Paradise release celebration. See party pics inside…
“IDFWU” rapper Big Sean invited a select group of music insiders to an intimate listening affair for his third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise (in stores Tuesday). The event was held at the exclusive SKY Studio in LA were guests were treated to breathtaking views, a stunning light show (compliments of Beats By Dre) and Red Bull infused cocktails. During his toast, Big Sean told the crowd that Dark Sky Paradise is his “best body of work”.
Singer Jhene Aiko was among the VIPs who nabbed an invitation. She was spotted making funny faces with pop starlet Ariana Grande.
Jhene appears on two Dark Sky Paradise tracks (“I Know” & “Win Some, Lose Some”).
Roc Nation boss Jay Z and his lovely wife Beyonce congratulated Sean on his upcoming release.
And Beyonce was unbothered by those leaked pictures from her 2013 L’Oreal campaign. Whether she’s been retouched or not…she’s fab!
Actor/rapper Childish Gambino was also on board to toast Big Sean and his success.
He linked up with “Clique” rapper Pusha T too.
NY legend Jadakiss was in the building.
Dej Loaf, who raps alongside Big Sean on “Detroit Vs. Everybody”, came out to support her fellow Detroit native.
Before ending his evening with a kiss from Ariana, he talked to E! earlier about working with her on their latest single, “Research”. “We were both able to just put our situation set aside and just be artists and, you know, be creative,” he said. “Because that’s real situations people go through and sometimes it’s just about making music that people can relate to.”
