Chance The Rapper new Blessings performed on The Tonight Show
Chance The Rapper stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday to perform “Blessings,” off his recent release, the excellent Coloring Book.
But he didn’t perform the original studio version, featuring Jamilah Woods, which he debuted on The Tonight Show back in May. Instead, he introduced fans to the alternative, slowed down reprise with help from Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, Anthony Hamilton, and D.R.A.M.
The track appears as Coloring Book‘s final song and still features a gospel choir, but here, Chance raps lyrics like “Kanye’s best prodigy/ He ain’t signed me but he proud of me,” “The people’s champ must be everything the people can’t be,” and “Call me Mister Mufasa, I had to master stampedes.”
