Big Sean’s latest album Dark Sky Paradise is soon to be released on February 24th. The album may be his best project yet as both a lyricist and songwriter. Sean produced an all-around hot new album with more than one hit single such as “IDFWU” and the Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign assisted “Play No Games.”

He also collaborated with his newest girl and life-long friend, Ariana Grande, to produce the song “Research,” in which he talks about his crazy ex and former fiancée, Naya Rivera, having an “evil” in her eyes and acting like a “cop” by hacking into his phone and email accounts. The lyrics are as follows:

“Through all the evil in your eyes I can still see the good though
But you unlockin’ my cell like you is a cop
How you decode all my V-mails, G-mails even P.O. boxes got me P.O.’d
You saw my emails with CeCe when you wasn’t CC’d

You talkin’ bout I had the key to your heart
Then I got my first European you took that key then you keyed it

I saw you wearin’ Drake’s chain like you were part of his crew
I saw you chillin’ with Meek Mill up at the summer jam

Seein’ you at the SoHo House I know you can’t afford that tab”


Millennial love can be tricky to understand, but Sean was able give his perspective on the complicated subject through his words. It’s a full-time job staying involved with social media accounts, such as Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, and plenty more. Although you try to stay socially engaged in the new culture of communication, it can also come back to haunt you – or worse, used against you. Sean has nothing to worry about anymore though! With his crazy ex out of his life, he seems to have things back on track with a hot, new, soon to be top-selling album and an amazing new girlfriend.
