Chance The Rapper earned his place in Hip-Hop following the release of Coloring Book two years ago. While he has been relatively quiet since then he says “The musical drought may be ending.”
While speaking to the Chicago Tribune, Chance let fans know the follow up to Coloring Book may drop this week.
Meanwhile, he and his Social Functions Productions team have been prepping for a headlining performance at the Special Olympics 50th-anniversary concert this Saturday in Chicago. Furthermore, it seems like he was holding on to new music specifically for this event.
“The musical drought may be ending, though. “I got that feeling when people do something that has a new feel to it,” he says of his new album. “I’m excited for everybody to get that. It’s going to come out just in time for the Special Olympics,” he told the Tribune.
Keep in mind, during an interview with Peter Rosenburg he said he was working on a seven-track album with Kanye West and new music with Childish Gambino.
Following up Coloring Book won’t be easy. The Grammy Award-winning mixtape set a record as the highest charting streaming-only album when it debuted at the No. 8 spot on the Billboard 200. The record stood tall until being unseated by Future’s Beastmode 2, which racked up 73.5 million streams across all platforms, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
In other news, Chance recently proposed to his girlfriend.
