Big Sean shares album cut "Halfway off the Balcony," reveals featured guests

'I Decided' can't come soon enough.

Big Sean is no stranger to doing right by fans when they've done the same for him.

When "Bounce Back," the lead single from his anticipated upcoming album I Decided, entered the Top 40 on the Billboard charts, he shared "Living Single" as a 'thank you.' And now that the track has climbed even higher on the chart, he's gifted fans again with "Halfway Off The Balcony."

Over a somber beat made of consistently plodding piano keys, Sean reflects on the downsides of fame before maintaining his drive.

"I'm the livin' proof that you don't need a master's just to be a masterpiece / People passin' faster than I'm passin' weed / My daddy tell me, "Stay strong, son and be the man you have to be / Holdin' shit down, don't crash at sea."

The song isn't one of the several Sean revealed to have a featured guest during a recent interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe. He told the host that Eminem would appear on "No Favors" ("Eminem was the only person I heard that could be on that song"); The-Dream assists "Sunday Morning Jetpack," a song Sean said Kanye West helped make changes on despite not delivering a verse himself; and hinted at yet another collabo with his real-life girlfriend and TWENTY88 partner Jhené Aiko, describing their chemistry as "undeniable."
