By Shannon Carlin
On Chance the Rapper’s latest track he proves if we can learn to work and play and get along with each other, it will be a wonderful kind of day.
The Chicago rapper teamed up with a few of his musical friends that he’s calling the Social Experiment for a cover of the theme song from the animated children’s show Arthur.
To celebrate everyone’s favorite 8-year-old aardvark, Chance enlisted Wyclef Jean, Jessie Ware, Elle Varner, Francis and the Lights, Eryn Allen Kane, the O’my’s, Peter Cottontale and Donnie Trumpet to get together with him and make things better. You know by working together.
This isn’t the first time Chance has covered the theme, most recently he threw it into his Governors Ball set.
“I’m soaking in their energy,” he said. “These are seasoned, awesome eclectic artists that know a lot that I don’t know. Working with them and getting to see their process is making me a lot better.”
