At the end of October, Big Sean and Hit-Boy teamed up to present their What You Expect EP equipped with with six tracks and additional assists from Babyface Ray, 42 Dugg, Bryson Tiller, and Lil Durk. With their musical chemistry front and center, the two continue to drop off visuals from the EP to ensure its momentum. The latest cut is “The One,” a simple black and white clip that sees the two cooking up in a peaceful studio overlooking the hills as Sean flows over Hit-Boy’s production:
Architect the way I take it to extreme measures, sometimes you gotta break your life down to build it better/ The game softened up a lot, it’s time to add some pressure, a lot of peers, we ain’t spoke in years
Yeah, you could go prеtend like I ain’t herе but that just shows me how much y’all threatened/ Y’all new music? Don’t ask me how I feel about it/ Don’t got problems bein’ real, I got real problems, old school, top down, slidin’ to Phil Collins (Swerve)
Big Sean and Hit-Boy previously connected on Sean’s fifth studio LP Detroit 2, a 21-track body of work that was released last fall and boasted a wealth of contributions from the likes of Nipsey Hussle, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, Anderson .Paak, Wale, Lil Wayne, and many of Sean’s fellow Detroit peers.
Detroit 2 further solidified his stance as one of the biggest in the game, thanks to a number one placement on the Billboard 200 following 103,000 first-week album equivalent units sold. Since then, Sean could be heard obliterating songs from others, including Benny The Butcher “Timeless,” Megan Thee Stallion’s “Go Crazy,” Jack Harlow’s “Way Out,” DJ Khaled’s “THIS IS MY YEAR,” Yung Bleu’s “Way More Close,” and Belly’s “Scary Sight.”
