"Halfway Off the Balcony" features production from Amaire Johnson, who's worked with Sean on "Bounce Back," "One Man Can Change the World," and a handful of Twenty88 tracks. It finds the Detroit rapper in a contemplative mood and thinking about his career. "I'm the living proof that you don't need a master's just to be a masterpiece/People passing faster than I'm passing weed/My daddy tell me, 'Stay strong, son and be the man you have to be,'" he spits over a somber backdrop.
This is Sean's third song off the much anticipated project, joining "Moves" and "Bounce Back," the latter of which climbed to No 16. on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. That success may have partially inspired Sean to share "Halfway Off the Balcony" this evening, as he tweeted:
Big Sean sounds focused on this latest cut, and he also goes the personal route, which is something he discussed at length with Zane Lowe. You can listen to "Halfway Off the Balcony" on Apple Music here or stream it below via Spotify. I Decided is due out Feb. 3 on G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.
