About Big Sean:
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 he 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 album and first album to debut #1 on Soundscan. It reigned on the charts with the #1 “IDFWU” featuring E-40 (3x-platinum), “Blessings” featuring Drake and Kanye West (2x-platinum), and “One Man Can Change the World” featuring Kanye West and John Legend (gold). I Decided. (released Feb 2017, RIAA platinum) debuted at #1 on the momentum of the two pre-order instant grat tracks that turned into smash singles, “Bounce Back” (RIAA double platinum with over 300 million streams globally) and “Moves” (RIAA gold). His latest album, Double or Nothing (released December 8, 2017) with Metro Boomin, has 261,376,362 global streams to date.
