Big Sean Teases New Album, Plans to Launch Tour to Perform Old Mixtape Material
Big Sean's now released a new project for three consecutive years, and he's got no plans of slowing up. He revealed as much in a red carpet interview with the folks at E! News at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday evening (Jan. 28).
Speaking with the entertainment news outlet, Sean Don teased a new album and a special tour for all his loyal fans. Sounds like he and his fans have a lot to look forward to.
"Getting ready to drop an album that I've been waiting my whole life to drop," Sean explained. "I'm going on tour, that's what I'm super excited about."
Artists generally tour to promote new music, but Sean's next one is going to take a divergent path. "It's a different kind of tour, too," he offered. "I always go, basically, based around a project, but this year, it's like—'cause I got some mixtape classics too. So, we're doing like, all the old stuff, all the new stuff, all the collab projects, Twenty88, Double or Nothing, all the albums, mixtapes, just classics, and it's just—I'm excited for that."
You read that right. If you've ever wanted to hear Sean perform tracks like "Final Hour," or "Bullshittin" during the same show you hear anthems like "IDFWU," or "Déjà Vu," you could soon be getting the chance to.
Big Sean's got a lot of material to perform. About three years ago, he dropped his third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise. The following year, he formed a duo by the name of Twenty88 with Jhene Aiko, and together, they dropped their eponymous debut album, Twenty88. A year or so later, in February 2017, Sean dropped his fourth solo studio LP, I Decided. After I Decided., Sean dropped Double or Nothing joint album with Metro Boomin.
Sean didn't offer up anything in the way of specific dates for any of his 2018 plans, but from what we've heard, they sound pretty epic.
