After a short delay, Chance The Rapper's highly anticipated debut studio album is finally here. The Big Day hit streaming services shortly after 1 p.m. ET on Friday (July 26), which marks the first release of a project that the Chicago native will make for sale.
Chano initially made the announcement last week (July 16) during a guest appearance on Fallon. The 26-year-old revealed the album, or "owbum" as Chance says, to be titled The Big Day, as well as the translucent CD-ROM styled artwork. “I haven’t sold my projects before. All my mixtapes were free,” he explained.
Those that purchase the 22-track LP over at ChanceRaps.com will have priority access to pre-sale tickets to Chance The Rapper's upcoming world tour. Dates for the trek are yet to be announced, but should be on the way soon.
