Big Sean is moving on up: The rapper only got to whisper in the background on Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” but he gets a full verse in the singer’s latest single, “Best Mistake.”
Tag: Big Sean (1-6 of 6)
Ruffled collars, sequined corsets, gilded doublets: It’s the best sweet-16 party ducats can buy!
The new clip for Ariana Grande and Big Sean’s “Right There” features the pop songstress as the belle of the masquerade ball, while Big Sean himself is elsewhere at a chapel, posing as a priest. Everything’s going smoothly until a handsome rogue played by Patrick Schwarzenegger (yep, that one) shows up to the party and steals Grande’s heart. Imagine it as a cross between Romeo and Juliet and The Great Gatsby, with a little bit of Can’t Hardly Wait thrown in for good measure.
Also, there’s synchronized swimming.
How does that all fit into one video? Watch below to find out:
No, Miley Cyrus does not twerk in this video. Yes, she wears a sweater that ends just below her nipples. But with a bra under it. But with the cups torn out. No, she does not slap her own behind. Yes, she wears other truncated, torn-up, peekaboo, see-through, shiny, leathery micro-articles of clothing.
Yes, Big Sean was savvy to make a video for “Fire”—a song off his album Hall of Fame, due out August 27—that stars Miley Cyrus and shows only a glimpse of him, wearing sunglasses, with flames superimposed over his face.
No, this is not merely a ploy for publicity. Although it is also that. Yes, it is a juxtaposition of dense, exultant music with spacious, drifting visuals.
No, Miley Cyrus does not sing on the song. But it is a great song. Yes, Big Sean is on “fire” here. Yes, Miley Cyrus has done it again. Yes, you can watch it here:
As you probably know by now, Aziz Ansari is a friend of rap. Now thanks to Drake, the cuddly comedian is getting immortalized in song form: his douchey Randy character kicks of Drizzy’s latest, “All Me.”
Of course, he’s not the only guest; Big Sean and 2 Chainz also make sizable contributions to the track. Listen to it below, and let us know if you also think it’s kind of funny to hear 2 Chainz rap about Toronto:
Justin Bieber’s trending on the ol’ Twitter again, and it’s not because of his UCB-parody biopic 8 Kilometers.
The pop star released the official video for his Big Sean-assisted Believe single “As Long As You Love Me” this morning, and it’s squarely on the epic side.
The Anthony Mander-directed clip begins with some narrative dialogue between Bieber and what looks like a character from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City but is really Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen. Madsen plays a protective father of Bieber’s love interest, played by 21 Jump Street actress Chanel Celaya. “She needs to be with a man, not a boy,” Madsen warns the singer, who in fact is a man. “I don’t want to know you. You need to get in your car and leave and don’t come back ’cause if you do, it’s not gonna be good for you.”
Yet Bieber’s heart tells him to stay the course, even if it means his body will suffer a bloody beating in a parking-garage scene that boldly calls to mind Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video, plus a splash of Drive.
Last week, we had a chance to hear Believe‘s Ludacris-featuring “All Around the World.” But hold your breath, Beliebers: the album’s other three rapper-infused tracks have hit the ever-eager internets.
Here’s the roll call: the Nicki Minaj duet “Beauty and a Beat,” the Drake collab “Right Here,” and the Big Sean-assisted “As Long As You Love Me” — which, it should be noted, is not a cover of the 1997 Backstreet Boys hit of the same name. We still don’t know if we’re sad about that or not.
Give ‘em all a listen in the videos below. UPDATE: The leaked songs have been pulled, per request from Bieber’s record label.
