Chance The Rapper – The Big Day
On July 26, 2019, Chance the Rapper debuted his first album release entitled “The Big Day.”
The project features a host of artists, from prior collaborators Francis and the Lights, to Nicki Minaj, R&B sensation Ari Lennox, and pop star Shawn Mendes. At the core of the album is Chance’s account of life as a recently married man (hence the title “The Big Day”), and what it means to commit to the special someone in this day and age. Evidently, Chance nods to higher powers for the outcome of a seemingly happy and plentiful life. The Chicago rapper offers a slew of different flows and moods, with such contrasting songs as groovy ‘Eternal’ and trap-like ‘Big Fish’ and ‘Handsome’ (featuring break-out star Megan Thee Stallion), or the melancholic ‘We Go High’.
Despite mixed reviews from fans of Chance the Rapper, this project makes for an interesting listening experience.
