Big Sean – Blessings feat. Kanye West & Drake

Big Sean drops the music video for the track “Blessings” featuring Kanye West and Drake.

Big Sean is not one to boast of his success and shows his fans this in the visual for “Blessings”. Darren Craig of The Uprising Creative production company directed the short film and has previously worked with Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.

The video is shot in monotonous shades and has a plethora of religious imagery. Big Sean is seen praying to a priest (played by Big Sean) and draped on white stairs that lead to heaven, as well as jumping around with collaborator Drake.

Other musical guest Kanye West can be seen in true Yeezus fashion suspended in the cloudy  sky before beginning a floor routine to the beats.

Nevertheless, the visuals are stunning and capture the brand imagery for Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise perfectly.

Sean, Drake, and Kanye are the biggest trio in hip hop right now – Dark Sky Paradise (Big Sean) and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (Drake) have both received impressive reviews, with the latter debuting at no.1 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Kanye has partaken in numerous press interviews as of late while promoting his latest single All Day”, not to mention the surprise London gig with Big Sean and British grime artist Skepta which sold out in minutes.
