While October’s elaborate “What a Life” video Big Sean covered head-to-toe in live bees, this new visual directs attention back to the music and the duo’s long-standing partnership. The two have worked together a handful of times over the years since first linking on the Kanye West song “Clique” in 2012.
Filmed in black and white, “The One” takes viewers inside a recording booth cast among the trees, where Big Sean and Hit-Boy jam out while making a new track, before cutting to the two on a scenic hilltop.
“Mountaintop views where the inspiration spews,” Big Sean raps. “Sometimes when you lose that’s when innovation cues.”
Big Sean and Hit-Boy’s EP What You Expect is out on streaming platforms now.
In other music news, Snoop Dogg hinted that he might take ownership of Death Row Records.
