Some of the biggest stars came out to support Big Sean at a listening for his third album Dark Sky Paradise at SKY Studio in L.A. on Thursday night. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper was joined by friends including Beyoncé, Jhené Aiko, Pusha T, Childish Gambino, and Roc Nation boss Jay-Z, who gave him the stamp of approval.
“Hearing Hov say ‘Great job on this album!’ and then NOT waking up in my bed in Detroit at my mom’s house was awesome,” said Sean.
Guests sipped Red Bull-infused cocktails and were treated to a stunning light show while overlooking the city.
At one point, the Detroit rapper got on the mic and introduced his “best body of work” with a heartfelt speech.
He also shared a kiss with his girlfriend Ariana, who tweeted, “so happy for u @bigsean & proud to be a part.”
Sean echoed the sentiment. “Thankful for u @arianagrande! I love u. Thankful for the life I live…It’s confirmation that we can do anything we put our minds to as human beings. The world is yours!”
Dark Sky Paradise drops Tuesday featuring Drake, Ariana, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Jhené Aiko, and more.
