Big Sean, one of G.O.O.D Music’s best, has announced a new album set for release in February 2017. Titled I Decided, it is his fifth album since 2011, and comes almost exactly two years after the stellar Dark Sky Paradise.
The Detroit native remained fairly quiet in 2016 apart from dropping collaborative project Twenty88 with Jhene Aiko. He surprise dropped two tracks on Halloween, No More Interviews and Bounce Back, for which the video came out last week and has already amassed nearly six million views. He also just dropped the long-teased final version of Living Single featuring Chance the Rapper and Jeremih, so it’s safe to say that there’s a lot going on in his world right now.
Ahead of the announcement has come one lead single, Moves, which you can listen to right here:
It’s a sexy romp reintroducing us to the rapper, who famously got his break after following Kanye West into a radio studio and rapping for him on the spot. His flow is unparalleled by many of his contemporaries, and while his lyrics aren’t exactly deep and meaningful, the way he moves through rhymes with speed and precision is nevertheless incredibly impressive.
Big Sean’s I Decided will be out on February 3, 2017, via G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam.
You can pre-order it here and receive both Bounce Back and Moves for free.
