Big Sean performs "No Favors" minus Eminem at the first listening party for his new album "I Decided."
I Decided is expected to be a major turnaround in Big Sean rap career; the Detroit emcee tagged it as a "concept album" about rebirth. Sunday, Sean Don gave his fellow Detroiters the first listen to his Motown-inspired project. Friends, family and some limited press gathered at the Museum of Contemporary Art in his hometown for the special listening party.
"I love y'all," he said to the crowd.
According to the Detroit Free Press, The Flint Chozen Choir, who appear on the album's closing track, "Bigger Than Me," were also present. Though he admitted the audio wasn't perfect, Big Sean played his 45-minute album while rapping along. Fans got a chance to listen to "No Favors," featuring Eminem. Though the reclusive rapper wasn't there, his high-energy vocals shook the room. One voice yelled out, "The whole city's been waiting for this!"
I Decided is set to hit shelves Friday. Other guests on the 14-track album include Migos, Jeremih, Twenty88, The Dream and Starrah. Sean has a busy week ahead. He'll appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on tonight.
