Chance The Rapper surprised everyone with a new song yesterday and we couldn’t be happier, we’ve been jonesing for some music to surface by the Chicago musician for months now. From his live Social Experiment set he has decided to release “Arthurs Theme,” originally written by Ziggy Marley as “Believe in Yourself.” Of course, we all know this tune as the theme from one of our favorite childhood shows Arthur. Chance brings along Wyclef Jean, Francis & The Lights, Jesse Ware, Elle Varner, Eryn Allen Kane, The O’my’s, Peter Cottontale and Donnie Trumpet to feature on this track with him and the concoction of sounds is beautiful. Steering away from his go-to hip-hop sound, this song is more of a melodic jazz rendition on the original and will have you smiling from ear to ear even on the worst of days. Definitely give it a listen – I have had it on repeat since yesterday. Oh, and don’t forget that Chance will be performing a live broadcasted set on Sunday August 3rd at Lollapalooza. This is something you don’t want to miss! Listen below:
