Chance The Rapper finally drops, Coloring Book, a follow-up to his star studded debut project, Acid Rap. Having performed at various festivals, selling out shows, being featured on Kanye West‘s Ultralight Beam, we can only expect a quality from this new project. The quality that Chano has been known to deliver, the lyricism, his harmonic and hypnotic multi-backed records. The atmosphere of his music is eclectic. The project features Kanye, Future, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Justin Bieber, T-Pain, Lil Yachty, Jay Electronica, Saba, Justin Bieber, Towkio, Knox Fortune, Kirk Franklin, Noname, Nicole and Eryn Allen Kane. Coloring Book is a feature-filled diverse free album that features a collective of various music genres and styles which makes it enticing to those familiar with those who appear on the project.
The artwork is reminiscent of that of Chance’s Acid Rap Artwork, it is animated but this time Chance looks less dazed than he did before. The crooner speaks on his addiction to Xanax on his latest effort. Chance uses the gospel melodies blended with the Hip Hop to exorcise the pain he has experienced to highlight his self-worth and enlightenment. His music like his live shows carries a presence and it is worth a listen. Watch Chance perform Blessings on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon below and check out the tracklist. Coloring Book is exclusively available on Apple Music.
