Big Sean is about to drop his album, Dark Sky Paradise next week but first comes this highly anticipated record, ‘One Man Can Change The World’.
It’s refreshing to finally see Big Sean taking a quick break from callin’ out his “stupid ass bitch” that he “ain’t fuckin’ with” lately. So he’s slowing it down a bit alongside fellow G.O.O.D. Music members, Kanye West and John Legend. It’s an emotional turn, explaining what he’s learned from his late grandmother–in a heavy amount of auto-tune of course. It’s backed by a repetitive piano chord progression and some soothing, female, reverb-ed vocals. The chorus is actually quite catchy:
I hope you learn to make it on your own
If you love yourself just know you’ll never be alone
I hope you get everything you wanted that you chose
I hope that it’s the realest thing that you ever know…
The only thing I have to say about the track is that I wish they decided to scratch the auto-tune out on John Legends voice. His vocals are just fine; no need to mess with it. I guess it’s a way to make all three verses more cohesive, although I don’t favor messing with his vocals just because Big Sean and Ye need the help. Feel me? But you will find that the song has Big Sean opening up about his life and saying things we’re not so used to hearing him saying, which I highly commemorate. Check it out for yourselves and let us know what you think!
