Deserve It

Album: Dark Sky Paradise (2015)


  • This song finds Big Sean recalling his first session with Kanye West in 2007. "He flew me out from my mom's house to go meet out with him in L.A, Sean recalled during an interview with Sway's Universe: "Even on that song 'Deserve It' on my album, I was talking about that trip. Riding around L.A. seeing the houses on the hills like, 'We deserve this. We gotta work for it.' You know, when you got less than $500 in the bank."
  • The song features Canadian singer-songwriter PartyNextDoor, who is signed to Drake's OVO Sound record label.
