Chance the Rapper gave fans a treat today -- and it wasn’t Kit-Kats. Instead, the Chicago native premiered the music video for his track "Same Drugs" on Facebook Live.

Chance took to Twitter prior to the reveal to tweet, “Does anyone have facebook live? I'm about to premier a new music video on there in 10 minutes ok? Ok,” and linked to his Facebook page.

The video opens with Chance playing piano in his signature "3" cap with a life-size female puppet lying against him. As he comes upon Eryn Allen Kane’s verse, the puppet sits up and begins to duet with him, eventually lying down again. This alternate version of the song also features vocals from John Legend, Francis Starlite, Yebba, and Macie Stewart.

As the outro begins, it starts to snow and Chance rises from the piano, walking from the stage and through the studio, revealing puppets are in charge of the filming and controls.

Before the premiere, Chance announced the video would drop next week but then changed his mind and said it would drop at 3:30 p.m. “Chicago time.”
