Big Sean enlists Flint choir for upcoming album & raises $100K for water crisis

Good news from a G.O.O.D. dude.

With only one week until Big Sean's I Decided album drops, you'd think that there'd be no surprises left considering we've already heard "Bounce Back," "Moves," "Halfway Off the Balcony," and "Sunday Morning Jetpack."

You'd be wrong.

While visiting The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Tuesday, Big Sean shared that the album's closing track—which he revealed to be titled "Bigger Than Me"—features the Flint Chosen Choir, a local chorus from his homestate of Michigan and, notably, from the city enduring an infamous water contamination crisis.

Sean, whose mother was one of many who suffered from lead poisoning, didn't only give nod to the city through music, but also announced that his Sean Anderson Foundation had raised $100,000 in an effort to give affected residents proper care and water.

"It's not even close to being over," Sean said. "That situation wasn't a natural disaster. It's something that should've been prevented and could've been prevented, so it's just disgusting to think about the damages that these families and even kids have to go through with the lead poisoning."
