Big Sean Announces New Album ‘I Decided.,’ Drops ‘Moves’ Single

Big Sean is capping off 2016 in a big way. With a little over a week left in the year, the Detroit rapper has announced his fourth album I Decided.

On Thursday night, he revealed the cover art and also dropped his new 808 Mafia-produced single “Moves,” which finds him in boss mode, taking care of his mother and giving his family jobs. Plus, he also shouts out his “partner in crime” Jhené Aiko.

“We makin’ moves like Tarantino / Like J.J. Abrams / Movin’ like Channing Tatum / Movin’ like Jason Statham,” he boasts. “Motherf**k the whole industry / Half of these ni**as my mini mes.”

Prior to this, Sean released the confessional “No More Interviews” and the Metro Boomin-produced “Bounce Back.”

His 14-track album drops Feb. 3 and is now available for pre-order on iTunes. I Decided. serves as the follow-up to 2015’s Dark Sky Paradise, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 173,000 equivalent album units.

“Can’t wait to share this story with yall,” said Sean Don. “My whole life changed when I Decided.

In addition to releasing his own album next year, he is also planning a sequel to his joint project with Jhené Aiko, TWENTY88.

Stream Yo Gotti’s ‘White Friday’ Album

Yo Gotti is not just dreaming of a White Christmas. He’s actually delivering it in the form of his sixth full-length album, White Friday, out today.

His first official drop under Roc Nation management, White Friday arrives through CMG/Epic Records. It features 11 cuts with appearances by DJ Khaled (“I Remember”), Kodak Black (“Weatherman”), LunchMoney Lewis (“Lifestyle”), YFN Lucci (“They Like”), and Blac Youngsta (“Free Lunch”).

Prior to unveiling White Friday, the Memphis MC also dropped “Castro,” a Fidel-inspired posse cut featuring Kanye West, Big Sean, Quavo, and 2 Chainz. More recently, he and Kodak also dropped the cash-filled video for “Weatherman.”

White Friday is dedicated to Gotti’s longtime manager Mel Carter, who passed away last month.

“I’m excited to team up with Roc Nation and bring my whole game to the next level,” he said. “I also want to pay tribute to the memory of my manager Mel Carter, without whom none of this would be possible. I was blessed to have him in my corner for so long, and he brought me here. I did the impossible because of Mel. God bless you and thank you for everything, White Friday is for you.”

Listen to Justine Skye’s New EP ‘8 Ounces’

Justine Skye delivers a Christmas present for fans with the release of her 8 Ounces EP.

The project’s title is actually at the heart of the 9-track concept. “Eight ounces is the average weight of the female heart,” Justine told Genius. “Now that I’m 21, I’m meeting different people from different parts of the world and I’m figuring out myself more and figuring out guys more. This whole EP is my diary of situations that I’ve gone through since my last project.”

The-Dream was instrumental in the recording process, acting as a writer and confidant. He also produced some of the material along with Tricky Stewart. “The-Dream was like my diary,” she explained. “I would sit there and talk his ear off about all my guy situations; he would just turn my stories into songs.”

Wale was also part of this project, appearing as a guest on “Fun.” Their work together comes on the heels of his shoutout to her on “Black Is Gold.”

Stream 8 Ounces, which follows last year’s Emotionally Unavailable, below.
