Chance The Rapper, Saba Release 'Angels' After 'Late Show' Premiere
Chance The Rapper already blessed the world with a full album worth of music with his fellow Chicago cohorts, Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment in form of Surf earlier this year. Now the "Sunday Candy" rapper has unveiled a brand new track "Angels" alongside Saba after giving it a world premiere on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The track continues what we have been hearing from Chance recently, notably on Surf. The track has songwriting credits from Donnie Trumpet, Nate Fox, Peter Cottontale, Saba and Lido, in addition to Chance The Rapper. With all of those minds meeting on this track, the instrumental has the funky, playful sounds, held together by blaring horns and fun bass lines, with a smattering steel drums mixed in. Saba comes in to add the chorus to add a memorable hook to the track.
The song was premiered last night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, who sat by at his desk with a halo on his head. Chance was joined on stage by several of his song collaborators including Saba, as they showed how to do some elegant dancing to hip-hop with some quality dabbing as well. Watch the performance below.
As one might expect from Chance this year, "Angels" is out now as a free iTunes download, so he can still chart on the music store, but fans are able to get the song for free. It is also available to stream on SoundCloud and Spotify for those who prefer to listen there. Go and get yourself a copy of "Angels" on iTunes.
