After teaming up on “Right There” and My Everything highlight “Best Mistake,” Big Sean and his girlfriend Ariana Grande are at it once again with the premiere of “Research“! The track is featured on the deluxe edition of the rapper’s third studio album Dark Sky Paradise, which is due out next week on Tuesday (February 24) via Def Jam and Roc Nation. The song is no romantic affair though, “Research” sees Sean calling out an ex-girl (Naya Rivera?) for obsessively checking up on him when she should really be checkin’ up on herself. “Okay I know you did some research / Well shit, I did some too / I saw you wearing Drake’s chain like you were part of his crew / I saw you chillin’ with Meek Mill up in the Summer Jam, oooh!”
While Sean goes in on his ex, Ariana provides some infectious background melodies and a sweet hook. “Whatchu got to hide? / Lying next to me at night / You test me all the time / saying I know what you like / do you remember, do you remember / when you had nothing to hide.”
