Chance The Rapper continued his stay in New York City for another day last night making a stop in on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon for a quick interview and to perform an epic version of "Blessings (Reprise)" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, Anthony Hamilton and D.R.A.M.
The new rendition of "Blessings" features the five artists out front of a minimal stage set up performing the track. A backing band is hidden for the majority of the performance until the front of the stage lights up and a band appears. The camera pans out and a choir appears in the crowd to really drive home the gospel part of the track as they ask "are you ready for your blessings?"
Ty Dolla $ign starts the song playing bass and Raury is on guitar as each one vibe off of each other handling parts of the hook. It is soulful and powerful and will inevitably go down as one of the better late night performances of the year.
Sitting down with Fallon, he talked about his music and how he likes to break the mold with releasing music. He explains that he doesn't like to sell his music because for sale albums feel "obsolete." "There's always new ways of releasing," Chance explains. "There's visual albums and full concerts and big Broadway musicals, and so many ways that music moves around now that I feel like trying to fit it into a for-sale album is kind of obsolete. It gives me more space to create."
