big sean one man can change the world

With Dark Sky Paradise rapidly approaching, Big Sean continues to build up hype, taking to the web last night to release his much anticipated collaboration with Kanye West and John Legend. The track, titled “One Man Can Change the World,” is a powerful, inspirational ballad backed by a piano driven beat. It gives a glimpse at the harsh upbringings of the Detroit world that Sean grew up in, and a heartfelt verse reminiscing and praising his grandmother, who recently passed away. In terms of production, this song follows suit with some of Kanye’s recent output, scrapping any drums for a much more melodic approach, with the piano rolling on in the background while Kanye and John Legend layer vocals over the hook. The song ends with a recorded phone conversation that culminates with Big Sean saying “I love you Grandma.”

It is clearly a touching song for Big Sean, and one can feel the emotion that was poured into it. While we knew that he was at the top of his game in terms of rapping, this song lets us know that this album should be special. This week has been explosive for the G.O.O.D. Music squad, and with this release they don’t seem to be slowing down. They are dead set on doing exactly what is in the very title of this song; changing the world. Now it’s Big Sean’s turn to show us what he can do, and according to him, we have a “classic” on our hands.  You can head over to iTunes to pre-order the album, where you will also find his new song available to purchase/play. And, of course, let us know what you think in the comments below!
