Much respect to Big Sean with the song choice and the heartfelt dedication preface to his late Grandma on tonight’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
This is one of the best songs off Dark Sky Paradise and Sean took the stage to deliver some substance, inspiration, and relatability to the late night audience likely hearing this for the first time. Adding to the emphasis on the words is the subtle, and minimal piano melody that will stick with you just as much as the message. Sean caps it off with a brief, yet again inspiring message to the public that you can be anything you want to be. Cliche, sure, but true and fitting with the song. Give this a good look below.
And if you’re wondering that’s Rose Byrne and LL Cool J along with Jimmy and Big Sean as they also played Pictionary for the fun, late night game below.
Finally, I also suppose a Big Sean post today should warrant mentioning of the official announcement… that he and Ariana Grande have broken up, with reps citing conflicting tour schedules that would keep them apart for a long time. Take it for what it is, but they were cool while it lasted.
