Music/Def Jam star Jhené Aiko, also debuted at #1 on the Rap and R&B/hip-hop charts.

In addition to his RIAA platinum albums, Big Sean’s track record boasts an impressive 15 platinum and multi-platinum hit singles, among them a trio of #1 urban radio staples: “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” (featur­­ing Kanye West and Roscoe Dash, with over 45 million combined YouTube views); Kanye’s 4x-platinum “Mercy” featuring fellow Def Jam MCs Pusha T and 2 Chainz (over 200 million views); and the 5x-platinum “I Don’t Fuck With You” featuring E-40 (nearly 400 million views).
