Chance The Rapper is making big moves all 2019.
The Chi-town native has been heavy on everyone’s radar since late last year. Back in November, Chance unexpectedly dropped two singles, “My Own Thing” and ” The Man Who Has Everything,” one of which was about his now-wife, Kirsten Corley.

— Chance The Rapper Album in July (@chancetherapper) March 6, 2019
The longtime couple tied the knot just a couple months ago, and is in fact Chance’s inspiration behind his debut album. According to an interview with Zane Lowe, the “No Problem” rapper said everything from the dancing, to the people he celebrated with sparked the drive for his very first album. With the news of the project arriving in July, it is safe to say that the independent rapper is working harder than ever to complete it, and quickly at that.
Adding on with more to celebrate this year, Chance gave fans an unexpected surprise last night delivering a new track titled, “GRoCERIES.” The Murda Beatz-produced song features TisaKorean, and is expected to be on the album, which he has been referring to as #owbum. He played just a snippet of the track on Instagram, merely hours before blessing his followers with the full song. But in full Chance style, the release of “GRoCERIES” is followed by an opportunity for him to give back. The Coloring Book artist posted on socials that he will pay 10 people’s groceries for a whole year, if they post a video of themselves dancing to his latest release.

It is hard to believe that this is Chance’s debut album, considering how well his last mixtape, Coloring Book, did on the charts. Released in 2016, Coloring Book immediately made it to the No 8 spot of US Billboard’s Hot 100. But we are sure Chance will deliver nothing less for his upcoming debut project.
Keep a look out for the album, come July, and stream “GRoCERIES” below!
