Miley Cyrus is the main visual subject for Big Sean’s art-heavy “Fire” video. If you’re wondering why Sean selected her for the clip, below is his explanation via Twitter. You can also download “Fire” for free courtesy of Samsung, HERE.
A special video for a special song. I got Miley Cyrus for this video because she’s somebody who’s had a personal evolution as a lot of us have had. Besides all the personal stories I tell in the song, there are so many other ways people can make it through the fire. I think Miley did a great job as a metaphor for strong women, being a strong person after heartbreak (hence the burning pic that could symbolize her old romance), or maybe even deeper problems but in the end remaining as elegant as a rose.
It’s a cool visual that has a cool concept and meaning to it. Thanks to Miley Cyrus for being down [and] everybody who helped make it happen!
