Big Sean Debuts ‘One Man Can Change the World’ With Kanye West & John Legend and ‘Win Some, Lose Some’ With Jhene Aiko
With the release of his new album, Dark Sky Paradise, next week, Big Sean is rolling out songs with some big names. Kanye West, John Legend and Jhene Aiko collaborate with Mr. Sean Don on two new tracks.
On "Win Some, Lose Some" with Aiko, the G.O.O.D. Music rhymer leaves the bragging behind and talks about his personal problems.
"N----s want handouts, and I only got two / Now I'm on the phone talking to my mom like I only got you / Getting dressed up for court, that's a law suit / Ain't wearing V necks, but n----s ask what happened to the crew," he spits, managing to fit in two pretty decent punchlines in one fell swoop.
Aiko joins him on the hook -- though it would have been nice to hear her sing a complete verse.
Sean also debuts "One Man Can Change the World" with West and Legend. Just like "Win Some, Lose Some," he digs deeper than usual and delivers heartfelt lyrics about inspiring people and losing his grandmother. West, Legend and the the Detroit rapper take turns sharing the hook, which is made up of some inspirational words.
"They used to tell me I hope you learn to make it on your own / And if you love yourself just know you'll never be alone / I hope that you get everything you want and that you chose / I hope that it's the releases thing that you ever know ... and when you get it all remember one thing / That one man could change the world," goes the chorus.
Dark Sky Paradise arrives Feb. 24.
