Big Sean brought some famous friends with him when he performed “Body Language” at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday (Oct. 27). Along for the ride were track collaborators Ty Dolla $ign and Jhene Aiko.
Their steamy performance kicked off with Big Sean and Aiko watching TV on a set built to resemble a bedroom. Outside the “windows,” a massive forest fire burned, casting a red light on everything as the two sang. Later, as Ty Dolla $ign was singing in the fog, lightning flashed.
At one point, as Aiko and Big Sean sang, the latter sat down on the bed, with Aiko eventually joining him on his lap. “Bring that body to me/ Baby, come closer, closer/ Bring it to me/ Oh, yeah, baby, I’ll give you ecstasy,” she crooned.
The song is from Big Sean’s fifth and latest studio album, Detroit 2, which was released Sept. 4. He wrote the tune with Ty Dolla $ign, Aiko and producer Key Wane. Big Sean was nominated for two awards this year — lyricist and live performer. Rapsody won in the former category.
The 15th annual event was hosted by comedy trio The 85 South Show’s Karlous Miller, DC Young Fly and Chico Bean. Watch Big Sean’s performance of “Body Language” with Aiko and Ty Dolla $ign below.
