When Chance the Rapper met Kanye West is not quite the rom-com that When Harry Met Sally… was, but we can hope that this encounter will lead to a a little music.
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.
“I’ve been working with Wyclef and did a little work with J. Cole,” Chance said, “and obviously James Blake. Everyone. Boys Noize, Jessie Ware.”

“Upon rising on Sunday morning, Chance was running a 104 degree fever and could not speak due to the inflammation of his throat,” his manager wrote. “He was rushed to Hollywood Presbyterian hospital where he was put on an IV drip and medicines were introduced to help control his body temperature and pain caused by his illness.”
The song was released as a bonus track on THEMpeople’s new “Smoke Breaks IV” compilation.

And out of nowhere, we finally have his debut album Recess, which you can stream in a variety of ways.
Pia Mia might be new to the music scene, but she’s getting a grand introduction, thanks to the Divergent soundtrack.
