Chance the Rapper recently joined Pharrell on his Beats 1 radio show OTHERtone, to discuss the influence that new fatherhood has had on him personally and musically.

In the teaser clip for the interview, Chance told Williams and co-host Scott Vener, “I’m so much more understanding of love. I didn’t know love until I had my daughter. I didn’t know its bounds.”

Chance’s continued on speaking of his four month old daughter by saying, "You can love somebody through anything when they're your child and now that I understand that it makes me work better with people, it makes me more understanding of how much dedication and love I can put into each line. There's no throwaway lines."

Pharrell who is also a father to a 7-year-old son chimed in and said, "I'm gonna tell you, that is the best song that you will ever co-write in your life. When you think the melody can't get any better, and you think the lyrical content can't get any deeper and any sicker, the bars can't be crazier, it happens all the time."

Continuing to exchange fatherhood inspirations, Chance replied, “It's crazy, because like you said she just grows. I'm inspired by her because she grows so fast. She's four months old and like at four months she's a genius already. She's just super strong and super ready."
