Though it’s every bit a hip-hop record (and one of the year’s best to boot), Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book is just as much of a true gospel album. In case listening to the album in question isn’t proof enough of its merits, Chance gave us a visual representation of his track “Blessings” last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon that saw him bring out a full-on gospel choir, complete with choir robes and enough “Praise Jesus Hallelujah!” spirit to get you up on Sunday morning.
And not only did Chance have a gospel choir dancing through the studio audience, he brought along each one of the track’s featured guest artists for the performance. Which means that he was joined on stage by the killer posse of Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, Anthony Hamilton and D.R.A.M. Suffice to say, it’s a moving performance, literally no one can sit still for it.
But that’s not all Chance has been up to. According to a tweet sent last night by Kit Kat, Chance has written an update on the candy bar’s classic singalong-able jingle. The image released by the company shows the rapper dressed in some kind of bear costume, so stay tuned to see what kind of hijinks that will translate into.
