Big Sean has been building up a lot of hype in the last few months with killer verses on tracks like ‘Detroit Vs. Everybody‘ and ‘Do It Again‘. Now, he, DJ Dahi, Roc Nation, DJ Mustard, Travi$ Scott, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Boi-1da have taken to social media to reveal his official album title. Possible collaborations on the LP?
The artwork that came with the announcement follows the same dark theme of the cover for his 4 new songs that he dropped in September, one of which was IDFWU and went on to be a smash. This compliments the fact that Sean said this is his darkest album yet. Finally, Sean also went on to preview a song with Drake he has that will make the cut. Hit the jump to listen.
UPDATE: In a short trailer for the album previewing two instrumentals, Sean has announced that the album will be out on February 24th. Check it out below. Damn, what a difference a year can make.

G-Unit made a huge comeback last year and followed it up with the release of their The Beauty of Independence EP which got a good reaction from fans. The team of 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Kidd Kidd will return with the second EP — The Beast Is G-Unit on Tuesday, March 3rd.
Today, the track list for the project has been unveiled and as expected, it contains 6 songs with no outside features. Take a look below and if you missed it earlier, watch the video for the first single ‘Bring My Bottles’ here.
It looks like Ellen DeGeneres has let the cat out of the bag and to our surprise, it has gone under the radar for most fans.
In a message posted on her official site 3 days ago (that’s like 3 weeks in the internet age), Ellen revealed that Kanye West’s next album is titled Only One — same as the Paul McCarteny featured single he put out on New Year’s eve. The message was written by Ellen to promote the guests on her show this week in celebration of her birthday which is today. Kanye is one of them.
I’m so excited. Monday is my birthday! I’m going to be celebrating all week long.
I’m celebrating with some really wonderful people, too. Kanye West will be here for an exclusive interview! He has a new CD coming out called “Only One.” I hope I can keep it.
UPDATE: False alarm. Kanye’s publicist has confirmed to Billboard that it’s not the title of his album.
Late last night, Big Sean took to social media to announce the title of his new album Dark Sky Paradise. Today, Complex unveils its latest (February / March) cover which is graced by the G.O.O.D. Music rapper. In the issue, he talks about personal struggles, failed relationship with Naya Rivera and of course, the upcoming new album.
“That title—Dark Sky Paradise—fits it so perfect for me,” Sean says as the day wraps up. “There were a lot of thunderstorms in my life. A lot of rumbling, a lot of lightning. Then sunshine came.”
