Big Sean & Metro Boomin Album ‘Double or Nothing’ First Week Sales Projected

Big Sean and Metro Boomin‘s joint album Double or Nothing is the hottest new project out this week.

Despite getting mixed reviews among hip hop fans, the album is project to move 60,000 plus album equivalent units in the first week and could debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Roughly around 10,000 to 13,000 of those sales will be from traditional album sales. While these numbers are nothing to brag about, we should also bare in mind that we are living in a singles driven era where album sales are on the decline and music consumers are mostly streaming the songs that they like.

Another hip hop album released this week that’s worth noting is Quality Control’s compilation project Control The Streets, Vol. 1. The album is expected to move close to the same numbers that Big Sean and Metro Boomin is expected to move. The album is expected to move 55,000 to 60,000 copies with 5,000 plus of those being traditional album sales.

Earlier this year, Big Sean scores a Billboard 200 number one album when he released I Decided. The project sold 151,000 copies in the first week and has since been certified platinum. The official sale figures for these new projects will be made available next weekend, but so far these are mere projections and the final count could be higher or a lot less.

Both Sean Don and Metro Boomin surprised fans a weeks ago when they abruptly announced that they will be dropping a joint album. Earlier this week, they made another announcement that it will arrive on Friday and they made good on their promise. The 10-track LP saw guest appearances from 2 Chainz, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Swae Lee, and Kash Doll. The Detroit rapper got roasted on Twitter yesterday for a few lines on one of the single where he raps about smoking a blunt with civil rights icon Rosa Parks.

Big Sean & Metro Boomin Album ‘Double or Nothing’ Coming This Thursday

Big Sean and Metro Boomin joint album Double Or Nothing coming this Thursday night.

The rapper and the producer only announced the joint album last week and on Tuesday they announced that it’s coming on December 8th, which means on Thursday night just before midnight you will be able to stream it online. This year has been huge for hip hop music and we got a lot of collaborative efforts with Metro Boomin proving that producers are winning too. The St. Louis producer dropped collaborative albums Without Warning with 21 Savage and DropTopWop with Gucci Mane.

Now he is closing out the year on a high with Double or Nothing with Big Sean which is only a few days away. Big Sean and Metro Boomin both had a phenomenal year but perhaps they wisely didn’t want to butt heads with Eminem who is dropping his album Revival on December 15, just a week after they decided to drop their project.

They also posted the cover art for the album which showcases a photo of both artists all blacked out except for their jewelry. A preview of the album could be posted on social media today or tonight, which will give fans a taste of what’s to come.

Big Sean and Metro Boomin Dropping Joint Album This Month

Big Sean and Metro Boomin and currently lock down in the studio working on their upcoming joint album.

The G.O.O.D Music rapper and the St. Louis producer both confirmed that they are working on a joint album titled Double or Nothing. The duo didn’t revealed a release date but Big Sean hinted that it would be here before the end of the year which is only four weeks away. “I ain’t done wit 2017 yet,” he tweeted.

Sources close to the production said that the album features fourteen new singles and will likely be available sometime this month. “This project could be the December surprise,” sources said. “The album is done so whats happening now is what you call finishing touches.. Metro Boomin has been a busy producer this year with joint projects with NAV, Offset, and 21 Savage all released this year. “I was born in ’93,” Boomin explained during an interview with Billboard, “and a lot of projects [from that era] had one producer, maybe two. They sounded more cohesive — better as a whole.”

Big Sean says that he will be tackling a number of topics on this album including racial inequalities and police violence. “I believe music is a way of getting away from things,” the Detroit spitter said, “but it was heavy on my heart, and I felt the need to talk about it.” The first sign that the two would be teaming up for a joint album came from the new single “Pull Up N Wreck” featuring Big Sean, Metro Boomin, and 21 Savage. The two discusses the joint project following that recording session, sources said.

Big Sean currently has 37 Hot 100 hits under his belt and Metro Boomin has 10. The two have a combined 5 billion streams of their music, so you can expect them to put up some big numbers with this new project.

I ain’t done wit 2017 yet…

Big Sean Reacts To Naya Rivera’s Arrest For Assaulting Husband

Big Sean has been singing “I told you so” all weekend after his ex-fiance Naya Rivera was arrested on Saturday.

The former “Glee” star was taken into custody over the weekend and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after cops say she got into a fight with her husband Ryan Dorsey in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Dorsey, who is also an actor, called 911 late Saturday telling the dispatcher that he needs a police officer because his wife was out of control. “I just need a police officer. My wife’s out of control,” he said in the 911 call which TMZ obtained.

Big Sean, who was engaged to Naya Rivera, before calling off their wedding in 2014, reacted on Twitter in a super petty way by sharing an infamous video of Lil Boosie’s daughter in a car yelling, “I told y’all ni**as, I told y’all ni**as, Y’all thought I was playin’ but I told y’all!” The tweet received over a hundred thousand likes and thousands of retweets with fans commenting saying that Sean did dodge a bullet.

Big Sean famously released a diss track aimed at Naya Rivera titled “I Don’t F**k With You” featured on his Dark Sky Paradise album. “I mean for real, f**k how you feel / F**k your two cents if it ain’t goin’ towards the bill, yeah / And everyday I wake up celebratin’ sh*t, why? / ‘Cause I just dodged a bullet from a crazy b*tch, I,” the G.O.O.D. Music rapper raps.

Big Sean Gave Away 5000 Turkey For Thanksgiving


Big Sean gave back to his community in a big way for Thanksgiving.

The Detroit rapper returned to his home state of Michigan for the Thanksgiving holiday where he handed out over 5,000 turkeys to families who are a little less fortunate than he is. Big Sean took part in a charitable event at the River Rouge High School, in River Rouge this morning where he handed out a truck load of food stuffs for Thanksgiving, something he had done every year since becoming a rap superstar.

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper was participating in the Tarence Wheeler’s 19th annual All-Star Give Back, a charitable event organized by himself and some well known athletes from the community including, Derrick Coleman, Dave Bing, and Gary Payton. Big Sean was also at the same event last year handing out over 2,000 turkeys and other Thanksgiving grocery items.

“Annual Turkey Giveaway away today. We gave close to 5,000 turkeys w/ sides this year. I smiled so much today man. Too much love for everybody there! Blessed,” Big Sean said on Instagram. You can see some photos and a video below showing the I Decided rapper giving away some free Puma sneakers and gift cards to Footlocker for them to shop.

“I’m from the Detroit and I love everybody in here,” Big Sean said. “Y’all got what it takes to boss up and take it further than I ever did or anyone ever did. Much love to y’all. That’s why we’re here supporting you, showing you that we care about you, and that we’re here for y’all.”

Did you know: Yesterday, @BigSean blessed a classroom of students with FREE SHOES, after giving away 5,000 Thanksgiving dinners to families in need? ? Probably not because The Don isn't the type of man who likes to brag about doing the right thing! We have to catch our breath every year during this annual week of giving. Why? When The Detroit Don comes home…soooo many people get major #blessings! Somehow, Sean Michael Anderson keeps raising the bar for himself, and we anxiously look forward to what this phenomenal human being will do next! RepostBy @freccity: "?Look who popped in at the FREC today! @bigsean came through with sneakers and fly gear for the students of Fisher Magnet Upper Academy. We see you #SeanDon ? @fordfund @seanandersonorg @mogulprep @shawnhwilson6 #bigsean #detroit #detroitlove ?" #Detroit #BigSean #Puma #shoes #newshoes #charity #givingback #giveaway

Eminem – Walk On Water (feat. Beyonce)

[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (fuck)

[Verse 1: Eminem]
Why are expectations so high? Is it the bar I set?
My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
I lose my grip like the flyin’ trapeze
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky’s blackening
I know the mark’s high, butter–
flies rip apart my stomach
Knowin’ that no matter what bars I come with
You’re gonna harp, gripe, and
That’s a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
As pressure increases like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because—

[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water (shit)
But only when it freezes

[Verse 2: Eminem]
It’s the curse of the standard
That the first of the Mathers discs set
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep
To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect
I’ve garnered? The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless
And it always feels like I’m hittin’ the mark
’Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
God’s given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
Kids look to me as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it’s a facade and it’s exhaustive
And I try not to listen to nonsense
But if you bitches are tryin’ to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished
I’m not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith
And I’m not Prince, so…

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh

[Verse 3: Eminem]
It’s true, I’m a Rubik’s — a beautiful mess
At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
A flawed human, I guess
But I’m doin’ my best to not ruin your ex–
pectations and meet ’em, but first
The "Speedom" verse, now Big Sean
He’s goin’ too fast, is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
There was a time I had the world by the balls, eatin’ out my palm
Every album song I was spazzin’ the fuck out on
And now I’m gettin’ clowned and frowned on
But the only one who’s looking down on me that matters now’s DeShaun — am I lucky to be around this long?
Begs the question though
Especially after the methadone
As yesterday fades and the Dresden home
Is burnt to the ground, and all that’s left of my house is lawn
The crowds are gone
And it’s time to wash out the blonde
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
They’re closin’ the set, I’m still pokin’ my head from out behind
And everyone who has doubt, remind
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
Now let ’em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a fuck about your rhymes
And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
‘Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight
When I made a fuckin’ tightrope outta twine?
But when I do fall from these heights though, I’ll be fine
I won’t pout or cry or spiral down or whine
But I’ll decide if it’s my final bow this time around, ’cause—

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
I’ve been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
If I walked on water, I would drown

[Outro: Eminem]
‘Cause I’m just a man
But as long as I got a mic, I’m godlike
So me and you are not alike
Bitch, I wrote "Stan"

EMINEM – Walk On Water lyrics

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (f*ck)

[Verse 1: Eminem]
Why, are expectations so high?

My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as

Flies rip apart my stomach
Knowing that no matter what bars I come with
You’re gonna hark, gripe, and that’s a hard Vicodin to swallow
So I scrap these, as pressure increases, like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

[Verse 2: Eminem]
It’s the curse of the standard
That the first of the Mathers disk set
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep

The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless
