Big Sean has been prepping his fans for the release of his new forthcoming album, Detroit 2, which is slated to be released on Friday (Sept. 4). On Wednesday (Sept. 2), the Detroit rapper took to social media and shared the tracklist for Detroit 2. The rapper’s sixth studio album sees guest appearances from the late Nipsey Hussle, Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Jhene Aiko, Dave Chapelle, Dwele, Anderson. Paak, Erykah Badu, Twenty 88, Lil Wayne, Dom Kennedy, and Stevie Wonder, among others.

Big Sean also took to Instagram to tease his new single “Body Language” featuring Aiko and Ty Dolla $ign. “Body Language ft. @jheneaiko n @tydollasign (Detroit 2 Preview),” the rapper wrote in the caption of his post. “when it’s just me n you cruising on the PCH, the days I wish I could put on loop. This a classic Detroit song I flipped, (Soulful Moaning) and Jhené n Ty took it to that master level!”

As Sean mentioned on Instagram, “Body Language” samples a Detroit classic “Soulful Moaning” by Shawn Harris. In the Devin Williams-directed video that Sean teased, the Detroit native and Aiko are inside of Sean’s car while the MC gets a car wash. Aiko moves from the passenger seat over to Sean’s lap before the couple shares a kiss. After the car wash, the pair hits the beach, watches the ocean, and journals before meditating by the oceanside.

Fans of Sean don’t have to wait too much longer for Detroit 2. The album drops in a little over 12 hours.
