listen to Big Sean What A Year (Ft. Pharrell Williams & Detail. Big Sean says 2015 was the best year of his life, and we believe it. This year, “I.D.F.W.U.” went double platinum. Dark Sky Paradise—his third studio album—was highly regarded by critics as a better album in atmosphere and lyricism than his previous effort Hall of Fame. And of course, we can’t forget the visuals from Dark Sky Paradise—“Play No Games” and the whole inspiration from Martin is still very dope.
