Chance the Rapper is an unlikely hero when it comes to those who, like the Chicago native, have been daydreaming about one particular food item that was previously discontinued from Wendy's.

In what began as a simple "affirmation" shared on Twitter this weekend, Chance the Rapper pleaded with the fast food chain to hear him out and bring back their spicy chicken nuggets. Soon thereafter, fans jumped on board with the hopeful initiative, promptly garnering the attention of the company.

"Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy's WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today," Chance wrote on Saturday (May 5).

The company account for Wendy's soon responded. "It won't be today, but there's always a chance," the company wrote.

Given Chance the Rapper's influential celebrity status, the motion soon received viral attention, inspiring those in charge of dictating the Wendy's menu to reconsider.

"Y'all keep asking, so here's your chance," the Wendy's account tweeted later in the day on Saturday. "The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK. Let's freakin' do this!"

As it turns out, the challenge was promptly accepted by social media at large and the requested amount of "likes" was met within an impressive 24-hour period.

On Sunday (May 6), Wendy's Twitter account confirmed the good news that their beloved spicy chicken nuggets will in fact be making a return to their menu sometime in the near future.

"THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y'all are crazy!" the account shared. "That took like a day and a half! WHAT?! We don't know when yet, gotta figure it out, but soon, and ok, LOSING IT RIGHT NOW THIS IS AMAZING!!"

Chance, naturally, then added one more small request to his order, asking the company if the nuggets can make their return the same day as his next album release.

Fans were quick to react to the exciting news, with some even calling it "the best thing to happen in 2019 so far." While Wendy's has not yet confirmed an anticipated release date for the coveted menu item's return, the fact Chance helped make such an opportunity come to fruition sure does win him all sorts of points among fans. In the meantime, fans can also look forward to his next album, which will be dropping sometime in two months time.

Take a look at how Chance the Rapper helped successfully convince Wendy's to reintroduce their spicy chicken nuggets in the tweets below.
