Big Sean f/ Drake & Kanye West “Blessings”
How bout this for the first preview of Dark Sky Paradise?
UPDATE: Big Sean & Drake are followed up just hours later with Kanye West on the extended version below. This beat and bravado were perfect for Kanye to brag like only he can. The most clever lines to describe his, well… just press play and listen through til the end.
With Vinylz & Boi-1da providing a lethal backdrop (chalk yet another one up for ’em), “Blessings” features a flurry of memorable lines from both Sean & Drizzy on the verses and another winner of a hook from the latter. Though I will say some of the one-liners fall flat (Big Sean’s solar system one comes to mind), I enjoy the overall theme and flow from both. It’s not your usual club sound, but I think this would be a feel-good record in a certain club setting. Time will tell if this will stick in my rotation for me, and perhaps it’ll be a listen in the nightlife or super loud in the car that’ll help it.
Strong first release overall from Sean as the masses should eat this one up. Dark Sky Paradise in stores February 24th.
