Chance the Rapper surprise releases two new songs
The rapper dropped 'The Man Who Has Everything' and 'My Own Thing,' featuring Joey Purp, on Friday morning
Chance the Rapper continues to release new music, one song at a time. Following up his four-song drop this summer, Chance unleashed two new singles at midnight on Friday morning: “The Man Who Has Everything” and “My Own Thing,” the latter featuring Joey Purp.
Chance’s last album was 2016’s highly-acclaimed Coloring Book — his third release, the rapper often celebrated it by wearing hats emblazoned with the number “3.” So far he hasn’t officially announced a follow-up, but with six songs released in five months, it sounds like he might be gearing up for another. If so, this hypothetical fourth Chance album would probably sound a bit different than Coloring Book‘s gospel-infused optimism. Like some of the July songs, “The Man Who Has Everything” has a somber mood, as the rapper reflects on his massive success. “My Own Thing” reunites Chance with fellow Chicago rapper Joey Purp; the two previously collaborated on Purp’s “Girls,” where Chance became one of the first rappers to use Ta-Nehisi Coates’ name as a punchline.
