With his new album Dark Sky Paradise in stores, Big Sean stopped by daytime TV show The Real, where he discussed his relationship with Ariana Grande.
“We started out as friends, but that was the thing,” he says. “It progressed from there, and that’s the first time I’ve ever been in a situation where we started as friends and it progressed, so that’s what it is.”
When asked what was it that attracted him to her, Sean said: “What I like in women is when they got drive and focus. That’s what I like, I attach to, I appreciate, because I got drive, I got focus, too, and every day I’m like, you gotta get it.”
Ariana Grande appears on Big Sean’s new album on the song “Research.” Dark Sky Paradise is out now.
