New Music: Big Sean – ‘Halfway Off the Balcony’

With just two weeks until his fourth album I Decided. drops, Big Sean liberates yet another song. On “Halfway Off the Balcony,” the Detroit MC does some soul searching, reflecting on his career, girls, and family.

“I’m hanging halfway off the balcony / Overthinking ’cause my job is way more than a salary,” he raps. “I realize when it comes to girls that chemistry means way more than anatomy.”

I Decided., the follow-up to 2015’s Dark Sky Paradise, arrives Feb. 3 featuring the previously-released singles “Bounce Back” and “Moves,” plus collaborations with The-Dream, Jhené Aiko, and Eminem, who guests on “No Favors.”

“I really made this for no other reason than people to be inspired and me to vent what I was going through,” Sean told Zane Lowe during a Beats 1 interview.

This weekend, PUMA’s newest spokesman will perform for the first time on “SNL” before launching his “I Decided. Tour” on March 17 in Houston.
