So far this year, Chance the Rapper has treated fans with a handful of loose singles like “The Highs and the Lows” featuring Joey Bada$$, “Child of God,” and “A Bar About A Bar.” Today (Nov. 18), the Chicago emcee returns to share his latest offering, a brand new track titled “Yah Know.” The track features an accompanying visual component that was made in collaboration with Mia Lee. On the new song, Chance raps about trusting the process:
“You’ll know when we get there, you’ll know when we go/ Gun to your back likе Harriet/ If you can’t shoot, can’t carry it, if you’re too fake, can’t fеrry it/ Come carry me home sweet chariot, everybody wanna come drive the boat but nobody wanna come paddleboat/ If we realize we was all compatible, we could combine the money/ Maybe come buy the boat, sometimes, I’m my boss, sometimes, free the man, in your heart”
REVOLT also sat down with Mia Lee earlier this month to discuss how the collaboration came together. “Luckily, the universe aligned for us to discuss art and his interests in stepping into the more visual aspects of art,” she said about how her working relationship with Chance first bloomed. “There are so many artists from Chicago, and he’s found a way to tap into that and try to tie it into his music to elevate the city. He approached me about his newest project and allowed me to interpret a song he did and create art based on the music.”
In related news, the Coloring Book creator announced a few months ago that he will be hosting a forthcoming festival with Vic Mensa next year. His Black Star Line Festival will take place in Accra, Ghana on Jan. 6 and the official lineup will debut later today.
Chance’s last full-length project was 2019’s The Big Day, a 22-song body of work with features from John Legend, Smino, DaBaby, Ari Lennox, Megan Thee Stallion, Gucci Mane, Lil Durk, Nicki Minaj, and more. That project peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 thanks to 108,000 album-equivalent units sold during its first week.
