This Is What Happened When I Tried To Call Big Sean

Sorry, Ariana!

Posted on

Big Sean's third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise, is set to be released on February 24. And like many albums past, it's leaked a week early.

The album features several guest appearances including ones from Kanye West, Drake, and even his girl Ariana Grande.

But even more exciting, the album features Big Sean's personal cell phone number.


So there I was on the bus, listening to the album during my morning commute. I'm on the 12th track, "Outro," when suddenly Big Sean rattles off a cell phone number.

"Say I'm hard to get in contact with, oh is that true? Well what about now? 313-515-8772, bitch call me."

Did Big Sean just pull a Mike Jones? Immediately I skip back, and back again, to make sure I was hearing things correctly.

Instead of calling immediately, I google the area code. Detroit. OK, well that checks out.

Then I turned to Twitter for further guidance.

On that note, I finally muster up the courage to call, hoping that 9:30 a.m. isn't too early for Sean.

I dial the number and wait. "Sean Don." I GASP. Immediately I respond, "HELLO!?" But before I knew it, my dreams were shattered.

I fell for the old answering machine trick. Turns out the mailbox was full, so I wasn't able to leave a message. Clearly, I wasn't the first person to give him a ring.

I decided I might as well shoot him a text that he'll never read.

I'm not too torn up about it though. 😉
