Rap forces YG and Big Sean have joined up on their latest single “Go Big” from the forthcoming Coming 2 America (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) out March 5 via Def Jam Recordings.
“Go Big” is a braggadocious reflection of the royal themes of Coming 2 America.
“I like views of oceans, free time don’t make no sense / Buyin’ a foreign with Pesos, I’m too real can’t play roles,” Big Sean raps. “Never did anything that ever require a plan / Tried to humble myself and pretend I’m not the man, really, I am / And some people get ahead and they selfish, start celebratin’ ‘fore they win / I am not one of them, hopin’ it work out, I rather go put the work in.”
In the track’s opening verse, YG exclaims: “Get a new bag every week / I be at the bank like Weezy / Withdraw this, please.”
“Go Big” is the second single to be released from the Coming 2 America official soundtrack, following the Bobby Sessions and Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “I’m A King.”
Sessions and Megan Thee Stallion previously worked together when he appeared on the rapper’s chart-topping single “Savage” in 2020.
