Everyone loves Chance the Rapper. And if you don’t know or don’t love Chance, he’s doing just about everything he can to convince you otherwise.
The latest delightful treat from Chance comes in form of commercial for another delightful treat: Kit Kats. Dressed up for Halloween, Chance and his commercial family browse the candy aisle when a Kit Kat treat whispers out to him, though the label reads “Chance the Wrapper.”
It’s a clever enough pun. Chance breaks into a Chicago blues riff on the classic Kit Kat jingle, that’s actually quite good. Credit where credit is due.
The previous night, though, Chance performed a live rendition of his song “Blessings (Reprise)” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The track serves as the stunning closer to his magnificent Coloring Book record. He also invited featured artists Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, D.R.A.M., and Anthony Hamilton to sing alongside him. This in addition to a church choir and frequent collaborator Donnie Trumpet.
Chance likes to make an event out of his performances, much like his mentor/idol/friend Kanye West, and this one didn’t disappoint. It helps you understand why so many love to love Chance: he makes you believe. Try not to feel some type of way after watching this performance. (As experts in feeling stuff, we feel very confident that you will feel something — and we look forward to hearing about that at some later date.)
The rapper would later sit down with Fallon for a short interview, explaining why he doesn’t sell his music for the uninitiated. Fallon asked Chance about his recent success and the critical adoration of his Coloring Book album as well.
So yeah: It’s pretty hard not to love Chance. Especially when he freaks out about bumping into Beyoncé as much as the rest of us would.
