Chance the Rapper returns with new single 'Child of God'

Chance The Rapper has returned on his confident new single, ‘Child Of God’.

The Chicago rapper has been teasing new material for some time, and it’s finally arrived. Last year in an interview with Far Out, Chance promised that new music would be released in 2022 and told the publication: “Oh, yeah, eventually. I don’t know if it’ll be like another three years. Well, I guess three years from 2019 would be next year.”

The new release features gorgeous vocals courtesy of Moses Sumney. Additionally, the video revisits the same room featured in the visuals for 2021’s ‘The Heart & the Tongue’, and Naïla Opiangah is also seen painting behind the rapper.

When Chance went to Ghana earlier this year with Vic Mensa, he met the Gabonese painter, Opiangah and ‘Child of God’ was born. Alongside the track, the pair have opened the doors of their contemporary art project, also titled Child of God, at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, which ends on March 29th.

On the track, he raps: “At every corner store, bodega, delicatessen, stands a big-head kid learning delicate lessons,” he raps. “Half-sized, chastised dolls with glass eyes, talked down, tossed down, the world just pass by.”
