Last night, Chance the Rapper stopped by Jimmy Fallon to debut “Blessings” from his upcoming mixtape Chance 3. He also announced that the new music will be available May 13.
“The Internet’s going to go nuts for this one,” said Fallon, and rightly so. The performance included a gospel choir and took the Tonight Show audience to church, as the musicians sang, “When the praises go up, the blessings come down.” Hallelujah.
“I don’t make songs for free, I make them for freedom/ Don’t believe in kings, believe in the kingdom,” rapped Chance during the song.
Fans have long wondered about the status of Chance’s first studio album. Despite high-profile collaborations and massively popular mixtapes, a debut album has been elusive. Last year, the rapper described Chance 3 as the final installment of a mixtape “trilogy.”
