After an extended tour for his last project, Coloring Book, extensive charitable efforts throughout his hometown of Chicago and a proposal to his now-fiancé, Chance has confirmed that he is back in the studio focused on new music.
Rumors were circulating at the beginning of the week that Chance was set to drop by weeks end. Chance himself was quick to take to Twitter to set the record straight, stating there was not a project coming just yet. However, about 36 hours later, he decided to release a group of 4 new singles as a pleasant surprise.
"Wala Cam" is an early favorite based on its up tempo production, strong feature and Cash Money Millionaires-type flow towards the end. "I Might Need Security" might set a record for most swear words ever used in a song via sample. "65th & Ingleside" and "Work Out" are largely based around his recent engagement, both wishing well to his ex-girls and having a hopeful conversation with himself about what the future holds.
Having followed Chance since his rise to fame, I do enjoy seeing his evolution from an up-and-coming kid from the Southside to seeing wild success in the mainstream; all without the support of a record label. Sonically, this might be the cleanest production he has ever had and lyrically, he hasn't missed a beat.
Based on the group of tracks below, I can't wait for his new project(s) to drop and I firmly believe that the best is yet to come for Chance the Rapper.
