Big Sean Scores Third No. 1 Single With ‘I Don’t F— With You’
Since being discovered by Kanye West, Big Sean has scored plenty of big hits, and has found a comfortable home on the Billboard charts. And now he's landed his third No. 1 with 'I Don't F--- With You' on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
According to Billboard, the well-crafted tune, which also features E-40, nabbed 67,000 downloads last week and garnered 2.5 million plays each week on Spotify.
'IDFWU' is the Detroit rhymer's third chart-topper, following his 2012 song 'Mercy' and 2011's 'Marvin & Chardonnay' (featuring Kanye West and Roscoe Dash).
And as far as the video for 'IDFWU,' Sean says it may be his favorite yet because it has such a strong concept. "I like videos that have themes, you get to have fun with it, you get to play characters," he said in a HighSnobiety interview.
The 'My Last' rhymer also touched on working with E-40 on the cut, and said he was nothing short of honored to have such a legendary rapper work with him.
"He's a legend, he was one of my favorite rappers growing up," said the 26-year-old artist. "My older brother used to play his music for me all the time back when I was a shorty...I was like seven years old, eight years old listening to E-40, Tupac, Snoop, and [Notorious] B.I.G."
But Sean isn't only focused on music. In an effort to expand his brand, he has linked up with companies like Adidas to put out a sneaker collection, which has increased his popularity even more.
"I've done a couple collabs with Adidas, so it was a lot of fun," he stated. "I always wear the Metro Attitudes and I was always telling them how much I loved them, so they came up with the idea for me to do my own. They came up with some of the creative aspects of the shoe, and of course we then had our own input too. It was a truly collaborative effort."
As for his next album, Sean says that "it’s way darker than anything I’ve ever done, way harder than any album I’ve ever done."
"I’m pretty sure you’re going to like this album," he attests.
