Big Sean Talks Creation of “Clique” [Video]

Late last week, the latest G.O.O.D. Music single hit the ‘net, with Big Sean, Jay-Z and Kanye West teaming up for the Hit-Boy-produced “Clique.” Even though he recorded his part a while back, Sean was surprised that he ended up on the track with two of the game’s biggest heavyweights.

“It’s nuts, because I did the song, and it was just me and a chorus, and I sent it to ‘Ye,” the Detroit rapper told radio host Mr. Peter Parker prior to last week’s MTV VMAs. “And then like two months later, I got a call from my homie who work at G.O.O.D. Music and [he] said, ‘Yo, Jay is on that song.’ He was like, ‘Jay and ‘Ye are on that song.’ I knew everybody laid a verse—a whole bunch of people had verses to the song. I was like, ‘Ah, damn.’ But then they was like, ‘It’s gonna be you, Jay-Z and Kanye.’ I was like, ‘Oh, I’m on the chorus?’ They was like, ‘No, no. Your verse, then Jay-Z’s verse, and then Kanye.’”

It was no accident, either. “They said that was per request of ‘Ye and Jay,” the former XXL Freshman said with a smile.

He added that he only has two songs left to record for his sophomore album, due out later this year. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
