This is not for the lighthearted.
Big Sean’s heartfelt Dark Sky Paradise collab with Kanye West and John Legend, “One Man Can Change The World,” has received an official visual treatment. With the brutal racial-fueled murders at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, it’s release couldn’t have been more timely. Directed by Andrew Hines, the black-and-white piece fits perfectly with the inspirational Dark Sky Paradise standout. The video is an ode to Big Sean’s late grandmother who passed away back in December. With regards to the release of the video, Big Sean took to Twitter to say “never had a song like this be a single, it’s different then what’s on radio, but I feel it’s needed with all the craziness goin on right now…” Watch the heartfelt video above.

Big Sean performed “One Man Can Change the World” on Jimmy Fallon
Big Sean’s junior album, Dark Sky Paradise, debuted at number 1. It had features from Chris Brown and his now ex girlfriend Ariana Grande. The announcement of the break up was reported yesterday, but that didn’t seem to affect the Detroit native’s performance.
He sung “One Man Can Change the World” which is a song that he dedicated to his grandmother who is the “best grandma in the world”. He said she was a captain in World War II and one of the only black, female cops in Detroit. He also went on to say, “if anybody showed me that one person could change a person, one man change the world, it’s her.”
He was accompanied by a pianist and set a very spirited mood on the Jimmy Fallon Show. Press play and check out Big Sean’s performance.
