(Video) Chance The Rapper Might Be Selling His Debut Album

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 8:30 AM


Chance The Rapper is fresh off of winning 3 Grammy’s without selling his music. Although, that might change next time around when he releases his first official debut album. Yes Coloring Book was not his “debut”, despite it being his third solo project.

Does this mean Chance will sign with a major too ? Only time will tell as he tells all in this interview with Complex about the next album, Grammy’s, and of course fatherhood:

“I might actually sell this album. That’s, like, a big step in itself. I kind of hate the fact that I can’t chart, really. I can chart, but the way they have the streaming shit set up is weak as fuck. It’s unfair,” he told Complex. “1,500 streams is the equivalent to one [album sale], and that’s just that’s unfair. Nobody listens to their songs [1,500] times when they buy it—fuck outta here! So, it makes it hard. I can’t really compete with other people. Not that the charts matter at all, but c’mon.”

Chance also admitted that he didn’t have a new album in the works yet, but he’s envisioning it to be something different from his previous efforts:

“I want to make something that’s got a wider scope. 10 Day was all about getting suspended. Acid Rap was a lot about acid. Coloring Book was a lot about being a father and God. I think whatever this album is, it wouldn’t be so centered. Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book was like a trilogy in itself. One aesthetic, one goal. Whatever my next thing is, it’ll be a bit bigger. Like, maybe there’ll be some type of visual component to it. Like it’ll be a movie, or it’ll be a play, or some type of tour. But something a little bit different than Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book.”
