Big Sean has released a video for “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)” from his latest album Dark Sky Paradise. Watch it inside and listen to Sevyn Streeter’s “How Bad Do You Want It (Oh Yeah)” from the Furious 7 soundtrack.
Big Sean next album, Dark Sky Paradise, hits iTunes tomorrow and he’s released a video for the title track “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers).”
The clip was directed by Dylan Knight and Andrew Hines, and shows Sean riding “up” an elevator shaft (as he raps about his early years and EBT cards) before he makes his way to the rooftop (commercial success & luxury living).
“I got a lot on my mind, I got more in my face
If I ain’t going to get it, that day is going to waste
I’m tryna move in my safe, like the safe was a safehouse
I ain’t going out to eat, but these hoes stay on the stakeout
And you know it’s official when I go bringing that BAPE out
I’m thumbing through the magazines like “this the girl I’mma take out”
Imagine stuck in the D and you tryna find a way way out
And yeah, your music been bumping and you just waiting to break out
And I’ve been waiting all god damn year, all year
I can tell that it’s near, but near ain’t here
Man, them bills is here right now
I guess you shine brightest when the lights down, like now
And then they say it happened for me overnight, shit, yeah I guess
I guess it took ten years for me to be an overnight success
What you know about living check to check to living check to check to check to check? First place, no neck and neck
Two girls is breast to breast to breast to breast
Blowing smoke but I’m a breath of fresh air
Yeah, saying I’m doing extra numbers like I’m Chinese
Taking double shots like Siamese
I’m from where crime breeds, her titties out like sign these
I knew I lived this life back when I was young and used to climb trees
I should’ve known back then I wasn’t gonna stop
Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top
I said I should’ve known back then, man, that I wasn’t gonna stop
Cause even then I was infatuated with just sitting at the top”
Last week, Big Sean released a single featuring his girlfriend Ariana Grande (“Research”) from the Dark Sky Paradise album. Listen to it here.
In other new music…
Another new track off the “Furious 7” soundtrack (see T.I. & Young Thug here) has leaked. This time, we’ve got Sevyn Streeter’s “How Bad Do You Want It (Oh Yeah).” If you like the EDM-infused track, you can pick up the “Furious 7” soundtrack on March 17 before the movie opens in U.S. theaters on April 3.
The disc will also feature Wiz Khalifa’s “Go Hard or Go Home” featuring Iggy Azalea and “Ride Out” recorded by Kid Ink, Tyga, Wale, YG and Rich Homie Quan.
Speaking of her song’s inclusion on the soundtrack, Sevyn told Rap-Up “I’m excited to be a part of that whole franchise. I’ve been a fan of Fast and Furious for forever, so to be a part of Furious 7 is cool.”
