Here's A Friendly Reminder Of How Epic 2015 Was For Big Sean

Big Sean had a really good 2015. Like, really, really, good. 

“Man, it’s just time to boss up. Everybody, not just us. Everybody out here, get your mind right, get your money right, boss up man. This is the year: 2015 is the year where we get it, become millionaires, multimillionaires.”

Big Sean was speaking prophetically back in February 2015, when he precursored what he now calls the best year of his life. In a six-minute video, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper offers a month-by-month review of just how amazing his year ways, complementing the release of his track, “What A Year.” From interviews, to television appearances, to performances, to video shoots, to personal events, “lit” would be the operative word for Sean Don’s last 365.

Highlights from his #WhatAYear mini-doc included Jay Z’s appearance at J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour, his all-star performance of “IDFWU” at the House of Blues, and his “Finding Paradise” hometown show featuring fellow Detroit spitters Eminem, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf, Royce da 5'9", and Trick Trick. Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T and Pharrell make cameos in the clip as well.

“This is what we dreamed of. This is what we had to boss up to get to,” Sean said at the end of the video, rounding out a pretty dope year-in-review.

Jessie Reyez And 6lack Grapple With Temptation In 'Imported' Music Video

Jessie Reyez shows no signs of slowing down, evident by her latest song and music video “Imported” featuring 6lack.

In the Zac Facts-directed video, the two are going on about their day, while romantic tension builds and 'what-if' thoughts run through their minds. The Canadian musician, who released her EP Being Human In Public last year, is found in the video letting out her frustrations out while splashing in a bathtub. As 6lack drives a classic car, he exhibits similar exasperations and frustrations. Will they let their temptations get the best of them?

“Get over them by getting under me,” the “Figures” singer says. The Atlanta musician is an excellent addition to the track, which is a re-release of a track found her EP, which initially featured JRM.

“You’re in love with somebody else,” they sing. “Maybe I can offer some help.”

Ms. Reyez is set to perform at Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party Festival, and is also appearing on the Best Teef In The Game tour with Anderson .Paak. We’re hoping these appearances coupled with this new material is the beginning of a bigger musical announcement from her.

Solange Is Front And Center In "Way To The Show" Video

At the top of March, Solange debuted her fourth studio album, When I Get Home, to fanfare. The soundscape placed her Houston heritage at the forefront of each track while infusing core elements of jazz, funk, and R&B within her contemplative lyrics.

To further promote the project, the "Cranes In The Sky" artist released its third visual, putting imagery to the song "Way To The Show." Packed with slow-moving choreography and identical wardrobe, Solange is backed by a group of dancers as they elegantly sway to the melody.

To zone in on her Houstonian upbringing, the award-winning singer noted in an interview with i-D that she recorded the majority of the album at the city's Project Row Houses and described how the tracks took sonic shape.

"What I love so much about recording this record was most of the songs are one-takes. We’d start from the top with me singing a melody and building out chords, just me and click track and then my boy John Key on the drums or keys and John Kirby on the synths," she said. "I would then go find the best three minutes of the fifteen. I actually tried to recreate some of my vocals, but the energy wasn’t the same and I had to surrender to that. This album isn’t about vocal performance or just words out loud. I tried to create everything I had to say with sonics and frequency. This is really about the way that I feel. Feelings.”

Premiere: NK And De La Ghetto Embark On A Dangerous Love In Paradise On 'Peligroso'

Hailing all the way from Ukraine, pop sensation NK has joined forces with Puerto Rican reggaeton powerhouse De La Ghetto on her latest single “Peligroso.” In the visuals, both are in the confines of a salacious tropical oasis that is made for late night romp sessions and trouble. The new 31 year-old artist has a knack for bad boys and dangerous love as she sweetly but provocatively sends out her sexy pleading message.

There are different montages of NK performing under neon purple lights; in a bedroom and in the middle of a tropical forest like setting at night time. De La Ghetto joins in on the fun with Miami style vibes in another nature filled world.

“NK is such a great artist to work with. She’s a true cosmopolitan girl with a natural Latin character. I really loved her style and passion right away when I heard Peligroso on a radio for the first time. I remember rapping to it, and I guess that’s where it all originated from,” De La Ghetto stated in a press release.

Similarly, the European-born artist feels excited about working with him and adding a more Latin flavor to her own music. “I’m incredibly happy that Peligroso became so well received all around the world,”  NK stated. “Working with De La Ghetto was a fantastic experience, and I highly appreciate the momentum he added to the song. With such brilliant minded people working side by side there’s no doubt that we’ve created something sensational and extraordinary.”
