Big Sean is wasting no time igniting his comeback campaign.
For, fresh from releasing the ‘Overtime’ freestyle, he follows up a day later with official new focus offering ‘Single Again.’
Unleashed via G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam, the track serves as Sean Don’s first solo charge since topping the charts with 2017’s ‘I Decided’ album.
Speaking on the release, which features additional vocals from ex Jhene Aiko and Ty Dolla $ign, the rapper explained:
“I never knew that I didn’t know how to be alone in life. I always would find so much joy n happiness in a relationship or being with friends, but I didn’t know how important it was to be in a relationship with yourself.
There’s beauty in being your own source of happiness and fun and working on yourself. That’s the process I been going through personally and it can be a scary thing.”
Take a listen to the track, which samples Carl Thomas‘ 2000 hit ‘I Wish,’ below…
All at once this manages to be an empowering, lyrically compelling, banger.
In an era where lyricism is being traded out in favor of digestible mumbling, this reminds a radio hit (which this no doubt will be) can still deliver lyrically.
