Big Sean Talks ‘Marvin & Chardonnay'; Plotting November Tour
Rapper Big Sean is having the best summer ever. The Detroit native's anthem 'My Last' (featuring Chris Brown) is a chart-topping hit, he's on tour with Wiz Khalifa, he nabbed his first MTV VMA nomination (for Best New Artist) and he is featured on Kelly Rowland's latest single, 'Lay It on Me.' What more could he ask for?
Big Sean hopes to continue his chart-topping streak with his second single, 'Marvin & Chardonnay' featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash.
The rapper tells Billboard that Yeezy was the creative genius behind the bouncy club jam. "He was in Paris, I was in L.A. and he hit me and was like like, 'Yo, you should put this on your album,'" he says. "It was perfect. We wrote our verses over the phone and just knocked it out."
The 23-year-old rhyme-spitter also just finished shooting the video for the song with none other than legendary video director Hype Williams. Sean promises that the video will have plenty of visual eye-candy to keep you entertained. "It's pretty G'd up. It's the classic Hype Williams," he says. "We took our time with it. Fine a-- girls [and] we're [Sean, West and Dash] all in there." He also reveals, "There's also another clip [in there] of another video."
Big Sean is expecting an even bigger fall season, as he's plotting his own headlining jaunt in November and possibly joining Kanye West and Jay-Z on their Watch the Throne tour in September.
Yep, Big Sean is 'Finally Famous.'
