Born Sean Michael Leonard Anderson on March 25, 1988, in Santa Monica, California, he is better known by his stage name Big Sean. The crooner behind big hits like Blessings, Dance (Ass), I Don't F**k with You, and more, Sean's music career began in 2007 when Kanye West signed him to Good Music and Def Jam Recordings.
Big Sean's career took off with his first studio album, Finally Famous, which made up for some trending hitmakers of the time. Big has since released Hall of Fame, Dark Sky Paradise, I Decided, and Detroit 2. Aside from his splendid professional life, Sean has also drawn some intense media scrutiny inside his personal life over the years, particularly inside his relationship with singer Jhené Aiko.

Aiko, 33, is a multiple Grammy-nominated singer. A native of L.A, Aiko's best-known songs are B.S, Triggered, The Worst, Lightning and Thunder, and Pussy Fairy. Before the pair hit off their romantic venture, the couple were friends, and in 2013 Aiko appeared on Big Sean's single Beware. Aiko share a daughter with her ex-boyfriend O'Ryan and was married to Dot da Genius, a record producer, from March 2016 to October 2016.
Since the onset of their romance in 2016, throughout which the pair collaborated on some bangers even dropped their joint album, TWENTY88, they experienced a few hiccups in their relationship. "Sean has become my family. I don't know what the future holds, but as far as my life goes right now, yeah, he's 'L-O-M-L," Aiko had said while calling her beau "her type."

After three years of romance and consistent PDAs, Jhené got Sean's face tattooed on her arm in 2018 and later covered up some galaxy scene, which Aiko said was for aesthetic rumors. The breakup rumors spread wild anyway, compelling the duo to confirm it in early 2019. Aiko even channeled the breakup pain in her song Triggered, which seemingly was a diss track at her ex. "Yeah, sorry. I kind of went hard, but don't think that this is a personal letter to you," Aiko explained.

The split was brief, and the power couple jumped right back in the feels and officially kindled their relationship after a few months later. The couple's reconciliation went official with Jhené's new single, None of Your Concern, featuring Big Sean. Both Aiko and Sean were 2021 Grammy Award nominees. "Our friendship is powerful, so that has made our relationship what it is, just that foundation of real friends who know each other on that level." said the album of the year-nominated singer about her bond with Big.
