Chance The Rapper to Drop Album This Summer
Chance The Rapper's upcoming album is set to drop this summer. Last night (Feb. 11), Chano tweeted that his LP, which would technically be his first, will arrive in July 2019.
Shortly after Chano posted his slightly ambiguous tweet that read "July," Chance's manager Pat Corcoran confirmed that the rapper was talking about the month his album will be released.
"CHANCE ALBUM. JULY," Corcoran wrote in response to Chano's initial tweet.
After posting his announcement tweets, the Chicago rapper switched over to Instagram to open up about the amazing things that are happening in his life. One of those things is his upcoming wedding. Towards the end of his video, he fuels more hype for his new music by solidifying his next album's release date once again.
"Life is good so you gonna get that shit when I'm ready. July though," Chance said in his Instagram video.
The good news comes a couple of months after Chance dropped “The Man Who Has Everything” and "My Own Thing” featuring Joey Purp. The latter was selected by former President Barack Obama's year-end playlist for 2018.
Fans have been impatiently waiting for a new project from Chano ever since he played with the idea of dropping a project ahead of the 2018 Special Olympics. While that didn't happen, Chance's friend Kanye West confirmed that their joint album Good Ass Job is in the works.
Chance The Rapper later confirmed that his upcoming album will be his long-awaited debut album. After his brief announcement, Chano offered a vague glimpse at what to expect from the LP. He also added a calendar emoji that has the date July 17 in it, which could allude to the album's release date. Check out what Chance has to say about the album below.
