Video: Big Sean – ‘Paradise’

Big Sean

Big Sean dropped four new songs last month and now he gives us the dark and eery visuals for the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced “Paradise.” The G.O.O.D. Music rapper rides around in his red Lamborghini with his girl, played by Love Dollhouse’s Ryan Destiny. They check into a motel (run by Mike WiLL), but something is not quite right and Ryan eventually storms out.

Sean’s upcoming album is due at the end of 2014/early 2015 and will feature collaborations with Chris Brown and Kanye West.

“I’m just in straight beast mode. I’m not angry, but I’m passionate,” he told 106 KMEL. “I’m just going in to the best of my ability on every single beat—not lagging, not cutting anything short, giving it 110 percent, going for blood.”

Step into “Paradise” with Sean Don.
