Big Sean has shared an accompanying visual for his latest track “Single Again” featuring Jhené Aiko and Ty Dolla $ign. Following the theme of the single, the Lawrence Lamont-directed music video focuses on a newly separated couple and their attempts to live life without the other.
On top of Sean’s performance shots, the video features a short skit of the rapper facing both jail time and public outrage for allegedly cheating on his partner. A news report claims that there’s no clear evidence regarding his infidelity, however many are believing the allegations “solely based on social media.”
“The visual highlights a few social issues, including social media’s ability to sway people’s opinions to the point of disharmony, the social pressures faced by Millennial’s and Generation Y and media coverage of the Black man,” Lamont explained. “While bringing these key issues to light, I also wanted to capture Detroit’s beautiful spirit and style.”
“The video has a lot of important messages, but the main one is for people to ‘wake up and smell the roses’ in a world where we wake up and check our phones instead,” Sean spoke of the video. He also took to Twitter to appreciate his ex-girlfriend Aiko, writing, “I appreciate you supporting me on this one and I want to just say I love you unconditionally. You amazing, talented, every song we do special to me! People gon say whatever but it is what it is.”
