Big Sean made his return to Power 105's The Breakfast Club program this morning for a quick interview. During the 15-minute conversation, Sean talked about the success of his latest single, "IDFWU," and how most people think it was about his ex-fiance Naya Rivera, but Sean once again shot that down, stating that he even remembers playing the track for her while they were still together. As for as the concept for the song's video, which features Sean in the middle of a football game with Kanye West as his coach, Sean said that he didn't want to just be ordinary and stand in front of a Rolls Royce, but rather have fun with it.

Sean also touched on his ongoing relationship with Ariana Grande, even ending the weird speculation and rumor that she demands to get carried around everywhere she goes by a handler. He talked about how he deals with all of the media rumors, and gave the advice that you just have to keep it real at all times.

As far as his long-awaited third studio album, Sean said the project is like a time capsule of the last year of his life, and though he wouldn't give a date for the project, he said it was coming soon and that 'Ye is featured on it. The entire interview can be seen above.
