In a new interview, Big Sean dishes about the in-progress music video for ‘Marvin & Chardonnay,’ which is being directed by Hype Williams.

The track appears on Sean’s release ‘Finally Famous,’ which just entered at No. 3, an impressive showing for a debut artist. Sean tells MTV the video will be huge.

“We takin’ it back to that classic material, that real Hype Williams, them four-day video shoots,” he says. “That’s how we doin’ it … This video’s definitely gonna be visually eye-popping.” Sean says he’s not intimidated by the accomplished director: “He’s a real dude and it’s tight being around people who you consider legends, and them just being so real and so human.”

Sean’s G.O.O.D. Music label boss Kanye West had a hand in writing ‘Marvin & Chardonnay’ and appears in the video, which will feature lots of designer fashions. Kanye offered his feedback on the brightly-colored suit Sean chose for the shoot. “He loved the yellow,” Sean says. “It was actually one of his ideas, one of his colors.”

Hype Williams has been responsible for some of the most epic videos in hip-hop history, including Busta Rhymes’ ‘Woo-Hah! Got You All in Check,’ TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’ and Kanye’s ‘Gold Digger,’ so we can’t wait to see the finished product.

Big Sean has already given us two music videos from ‘Finally Famous’ — his first single, ‘My Last,’ and the follow-up, ‘I Do It.’
