Chance The Rapper Has Dropped Hints of Arrival of New Music This Week

Chance The Rapper seems to be hinting that new music will be released this week. Chance took to Twitter yesterday (20th March) to share a cryptic post that read: “My mind is decided”, alongside a date of March 24 – implying that new music will be released this Thursday. A black and white photograph of Chance staring at a blank wall accompanied the message.

Chance has been teasing his return for a while now with a series of Instagram posts including photographs from what appear to be writing and recording sessions.

“How bout a new one in March,” he wrote in February.

Chance also posted a snippet of new political music earlier this month, in which he rapped about the assassination of George Washington, the first president of the United States. The song began with a symbolic story about George Washington’s death and his slave ownership.

“George Washington died at the dentist getting fillings/ He had slave teeth by the hundreds but bacteria by the millions,“ Chance raps. It then shifts to contemporary issues like violence, Black wealth, voting, and more.

The 43-second clip can be heard below, which Chance posted to Instagram with the caption: “Felt cute might delete later.”

Chance’s most recent release was last month as a featured artist on fellow Chicago rapper Supa Bwe’s ‘ACAB,’ which saw him tackle political issues as well.

His last solo album was 2019’s ‘The Big Day’. In a three-star review, NME called the record “a buoyant, cheerful project that looks back on his young, successful career through rose-tinted lenses but, ultimately, doesn’t possess enough depth amidst a mishmash of production and features that make it too long-winded”.

Last year, Chance collaborated on the politically charged tune ‘Shelter’ with Vic Mensa and Wyclef Jean, shared the solo single ‘The Heart & The Tongue,’ and released the concert film called ‘Magnificent Coloring World’.

He also collaborated with John Legend and Symba on the music for Space Jam: A New Legacy’s ‘See Me Fly,’ as well as on Smoko Ono’s afrobeat-inspired ‘Winners.’ ‘Nothing’s Impossible,’ his long-awaited collaboration with R&B queen Dionne Warwick, was also released last year.
