After his mega hit "I Don't F*ck With You," Big Sean is back with a slightly less critical tune. "Research" is our latest taste of Dark Sky Paradise, the rapper's upcoming full-length, and features girlfriend Ariana GrandeMariah Carey-esque pipes and all. 

The tune is a bit slower than Sean's go-to hit, but his lines remain as unique to him as ever. The song itself deals with a neurotic girlfriend, one that "researches" his every move, photos from every party, so on and so forth. Listen to it below.

"Girl I know you did your research / Well sh*t I did too," he raps on the song. "I saw you wearing Drake's chain like you were part of his crew / I saw you chillin' with Meek Mill at the Summer Jam ohh / I hope my eye's the one that's lying to me and you." 

Meanwhile, the chorus brings out Ariana's classic harmonies with a repetition of "Do you remember / When you had nothing to hide."
