Variety caught up with Sean on the set of his debut acting role “Twenties” to discuss how “Single Again” came together, his Detroit roots, and having A$AP Rocky on his forthcoming album.

“Single Again” already looks like a hit.
It’s a fire song to me. The album has so many layers and vibes, that’s just one of them.

What did it mean to have your ex, Jhene Aiko, on it?
Regardless, she’s probably my most frequent collaborator. At that point, all the stuff we’ve been through, it’s unconditional love. I even consider her family, not my ex. I still know how special it is to get her on a song, I don’t take it for granted. And Ty Dolla $ign, for real. He’s really another one who I respect. I don’t know if people all the way see Ty’s true talent, he’s one of the most musical, soulful musicians. He did the vocoder on there, all the backgrounds too. Both of them helped me… because I’m singing a lot. [smiles] They were backing me up, so I appreciate that support.


What was the dynamic like in the studio?
It was easy! I did it two different days with each artist. I was with Ty$ doing a song for his album, then I played him “Single Again.” He’s like “Aw man, I love this song, lemme add something.” Same thing I was in the studio with Jhene, we were playing stuff back and forth. I was like, “You should hop on this,” and she did. The music should speak louder than everything else.

Were you worried at all about the “Single Again” concept? That’s a powerful statement.
Nah, not at all. It’s just something people go through. It ain’t nothing too crazy. When I played it for my dad the first time, he was like, “Yeah! An old playa like me can really relate. It’s good to hear this in a rap song. All the rap songs I hear are degrading or putting people down.” But he’s like, “It’s cool to hear you rap about how you need to work on yourself. I thought that was a real good maturity.” “Thanks dad!”

What was the best part of the video shoot?
Just being in the heart of Detroit. I was one street over from where I grew up on. You can tell the spirit of Detroit is in that video.

I heard you’re paying homage to Blade Icewood (who was fatally shot) with that dance in the video.

That’s an OG dance! Shout out Street Lord Juan, shout out Blade Icewood, OGs in our city who were local superstars. Blade got murdered about 14 years ago. That’s one of his dances he used to do: The “Boss up and get this money” dance. I always be hittin’ it in most of my videos when I get a chance.

Can you give us one exclusive on your upcoming album? Is there a name?
I’m not gonna give you that! [laughs] I’ma have some people on there. I’ll give you an exclusive, I got a fire song I did with [A$AP] Rocky. I really am feeling for my guy right now, my dawg. I really hope things work out in his favor, he’s been over there [in Sweden, awaiting trial on assault charges] for too long. I’m praying for him.

What are your thoughts on Trump trying to support him? Because Lil Yachty was not having it.
Whatever it takes to get him out is how I feel. I don’t want to get into the politics of things, but whatever it takes to get my bro out.

Good day from Sean yesterday. Nothing but positive reactions and reviews from everybody. Won a lot of Hip Hop fans back with this record. Video has also been trending on Youtube seen it dropped especially for it being rap record/freestyle.
Save to say red is the colour scheme?
