Big Sean has revealed that he has a new album coming this year.

On Saturday, Rap Radar‘s Elliott Wilson posted a video of Sean performing his new song with Bryson Tiller, "Get Dis Money."

The song uses the beat of Slum Village's 1999 track of the same name, which was produced by J Dilla.

"Thinking you can move on from shit so quickly / Thought we was tailor-made, I see it's not goin' swiftly," Sean raps on the song.

Commenting on Wilson's post, Sean shared his plans to drop new music of his own in the near future.

"Nah its time for a new album this year fasho," he wrote.

In a second comment, the "Guap" rapper said: "N what u know bout that Dilla beat Elliot?!"

Sean hasn't dropped an album since 2020's "Detroit 2."

Prior to that, he hadn't released an album since 2017's "I Decided."

Shortly after the release of "Detroit 2," Sean took to X, the platform previously known as Twitter, to share that he had been struggling with his mental health while making the project.

"I don’t feel like this currently, but I had never gone through wanting to kill myself, give up on my life until the past few years," he wrote.

In a second tweet, Sean added: "I thought doing what I loved would always make me happy and satisfied, so when I got tired of it, I was confused and it drove me insane."
