The Power of Social Media. Big Sean started sending fans everywhere into a frenzy as he and his team began posting Dark Sky Paradise artwork on Instagram in unison earlier in the week. That one post turned into over 20 including the majority of your favorite artists, leaving some to wonder what it represented and why was it all of a sudden everywhere we looked?! Sean gave us a simple tweet that made it clear: “done.” signifying his album was finally ready for its scheduled February 24th release. The album hype was clearly just beginning as word spread that he and Drake had something up their sleeves for the project. When it finally emerged, it was a blessing. One thing that you cannot debate is the impact a good song/release will have on the masses when properly executed, this entire week has solidified that concept twice over. Why twice over? Because not only did we get Big Sean and Drake together on “Blessings” but before fans could even grasp the moment, an exclusive remix hit the internet featuring Kanye West. Needless to say, everyone went scrambling to get a first listen to the Kanye version and the debates began about who had the best verse. As the excitement hit a plateau starting to slow down, Big Sean stirred up things again by releasing the album tracklist, cover and opening pre-orders via iTunes tonight. All signs point towards success for the Detroit native as February 24th will be circled on a few calendars. FFOE.
