Watch Big Sean Give Halsey Love Advice in “Alone” Video

Break-ups can be heartbreaking, but a night at a dance club can help make it better. Unless it just so happens to be the same nightclub your ex-lover goes to, like in Halsey's “Alone” video with Big Sean and Stefflon Don.

“Never underestimate the power of a broken heart,” tweeted Halsey with a link to the song that comes off of her sophomore album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.

The clip, which Halsey co-directed with Hannah Lux Davis, kicks off with Halsey in a glittery sheer leotard as she heads to an underground club. But as she rocks the stage at the party, she sees her ex on a balcony—with her doppelägnger.

That's when Big Sean steps in with a pep talk on love. “Damn, you know I relate to you more than fam/So I won't sit around and let you sink in quicksand,” he raps. “Cause baby, you been living life inside a bubble/When the last time you had somebody hug you?/Hold up, when the last time you had somebody love you?/Hold up, when the last time you love someone who love you?”

When the song dropped last month, Halsey went to Twitter to show love to her featured guests.

“This record is a BANGER. You guys have no idea. 🤘🏼 I rarely do collaborations or add features to songs. These guys took this song to a new level,” read her tweet.

Halsey's “Alone” video comes ahead of her final leg of her North American tour which kicks off in July. Afterward, she's scheduled to head overseas for the worldwide tour which will cap off in London in September.

Here’s Why 21 Savage Is No Longer Wearing Jewelry

Jewelry will no longer be a part of the 21 Savage aesthetic.

In a recent tweet, Stone Mound Meezy—21's manager—said the “Rockstar” chart-topper “no longer wears jewelry.” Instead, Meezy said, 21 wants to make things like buying houses and investing in businesses “cool” for young artists to do.

These tweeted goals arrive just after 21 announced a joint tour with his “Rockstar” collaborator Post Malone. The tour, kicking off April 26 in Portland, boasts support from SOB x RBE and Paris on select dates. Tickets are now available.

Since dropping Issa Album and his Offset x Metro Boomin collab Without Warning in 2017, 21 has appeared on tracks by Big Sean, Rich Brian, Casino, and more. In December, he linked up with Cardi B for “Bartier Cardi,” which eventually peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year. Speaking on his successes with Rolling Stone last year, 21 recalled how he reacted when Epic Records realized they had made one hell of a mistake by not signing him sooner. “When I came into the [Epic] office [the second time] I'm like, 'Yo, you gotta pay an extra fee cause you ain't sign me in the beginning,'” he said.​

Earlier this month, 21 was the inspiration behind Amber Rose's Valentine’s Day-themed Spotify playlist. The mix includes theme-appropriate tracks from Pharrell Williams, Frank Ocean, Jill Scott, Teddy Pendergrass, and more.

Big Sean Postpones Upcoming Tour: ‘I Need to Stay Focused in the Studio’

Late Sunday night, a number of Big Sean fans began receiving emails from numerous ticket vendors telling them that the rapper had postponed his upcoming Unfriendly Reminder Tour with Playboi Carti and Shy Glizzy. A user on the Hip-Hop Heads Reddit pointed out the news early on without a source, but a number of the previously announced venues had updated their listings to include a note from Sean apologizing for the announcement as well as the reason behind it.

“To all my fans: I've been in a deep creative space and decided I need to stay focused in the studio – so unfortunately, I am postponing my upcoming tour,” read the note. “I learned in life you have to follow your intuition – I hope you do the same. Thank you for your continued love and support. It means the world to me. Trust, we are working on something special for you all.”

The venue for what was going to be the first show on the tour, CFE Arena in Orlando Florida, has posted the note confirming the news.

Sean announced the Unfriendly Reminder Tour earlier this month, sharing a poster with over thirty dates. He teased the tour in late January, but he also said he was planning to drop more music this year. Looks like whatever it is he was working demands his full attention right now.

“A lot of the tours I do [are] based off of one project. I wanna do something that's a culmination of everything,” he said at the time.

G.O.O.D. Music Producer Warns to ‘Keep an Eye Out’ for ‘Little Treat’

Is G.O.O.D. Music about to make a comeback?

Grammy Award-winning producer Anthony Kilhoffer put out a tweet calling for fans of G.O.O.D.'s heyday to “keep an eye out.”

It's been six years since G.O.O.D. Music dropped their compilation album, Cruel Summer. Now fans are speculating whether or not it'll be more collaborations (especially since an official G.O.O.D. Soundcloud page surfaced last month) or a one-off track from G.O.O.D.'s stacked roster which includes Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, CyHi the Prynce, Teyana Taylor, Desiigner and more.

It could also be a track from a G.O.O.D. affiliate like Kid Cudi or Yasiin Bey. Last year, Kilhoffer teamed up with 808s & Heartbreak's co-producer and former G.O.O.D. Music member Mr. Hudson, for the track “Can't Forget You.” So it's likely that this is another track cooked up by the two as well.

Although there's no word yet from G.O.O.D.'s official platforms, fans are naturally hyped about any news of a G.O.O.D. return.

Did Jay Rock Take Shots at Big Sean on “King’s Dead”?

Jay Rock's star-studded single “King's Dead” features labelmate Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake, along with solid production from Mike Will Made-It and Teddy Walton. That alone should get people talking, but it also sounds like the Watts representative has bars for a certain rapper: Big Sean. Though the suspected references are subtle, the theory isn’t much of a reach when you consider Sean’s ongoing feud with Kendrick.

Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics.

At the beginning of his verse, Jay uses the term “lil bitch,” which is a regular Sean ad-lib and one that Kendrick used on “The Heart Part 4.” (That song was also suspected of being a Sean diss track).

And it's like that, lil bitch
MVP, I get no sleep
No, I don't like that, lil bitch
Bust that open, I want that ocean
Yeah that bite back, lil bitch
Do it bite back, lil bitch?
Need two life jackets, lil bitch

Jay then goes on to rap: “I ain't gon’ hold you, I ain't gon’ press you, never control you/I ain't gon’ front you, keep it 100, I don't know you.” The use of the word “control” could be a reference to Sean’s 2013 song “Control” featuring Kendrick and Jay Electronica. The No I.D.-produced record seemingly sparked the beef between the rappers, as K-Dot rapped:

And them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, ASAP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all, but I'm tryna murder you niggas

Though Sean insisted he approved Kendrick’s verse, “Control” was ultimately left off his sophomore album, Hall of Fame. Which brings us to exhibit C: Jay later raps, “Stutter steppin', got a Hall of Fame in all my posters.” Interesting.

And then we have these lines: “My bitch been ready, my clique's been ready/My shit's been ready, my check's been ready.” Though it may be a stretch, the use of the word “clique” could be alluding to Sean’s feature on the Cruel Summer track “Clique,” with Kanye West and Jay Z.  

So, was Jay actually taking subtle jabs at Sean? You be the judge. “King’s Dead” is now available to stream on SoundCloud. The track is the lead single off Jay's upcoming studio album, and will appear on the Black Panther soundtrack.
