Chance the Rapper’s ‘Coloring Book’ Now Available on Additional Streaming Services
Fans of Chance the Rapper and strident opponents of subscription-based streaming services have reason to rejoice today as the Chicago rapper's highly-praised Coloring Book has expanded its release and is now available on Spotify (below), SoundCloud, TIDAL and other streaming services. The 14-track mixtape is every bit as polished and calculated as an album would be with features from Kanye West, Jay Electronica, Future, Young Thug and more.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Chance and Coloring Book had made history as the first project to chart within the Billboard Album 200 chart's top ten off of streaming alone. Receiving streams that equal 38,000 album sales, Coloring Book debuted at No. 8 on the album charts, with its tracks having been streamed 57.3 million times as an Apple Music exclusive. Taking things from the screen to the page, a downloadable coloring book based on Chance's latest has been created as well, with each track receiving a corresponding illustration for fans so moved by Chance's art that they feel compelled to create their own.
Chance sat down with Beats 1 Radio's Zane Lowe to discuss the release, and said that while Universal gave him some grief for including such high-profile features without any intention of selling the record, they eventually helped him make the project happen. To those who have yet to bask in the glory off Coloring Book, peep the release below. There remains no indication that physical copies of the work will be sold.
