Chance the Rapper Shares Thoughts While Working on Upcoming Album: 'There Truly Is No Joy Like Making a Project'

Just a few months after Chance the Rapper got his fans hyped by announcing his new album will be arriving in July, he took to Instagram on Wednesday (April 10) for a little update.  

Alongside a photo of a refrigerator stocked with lemonade, Chance revealed that he's "been really happy the past few weeks." He noted that his pregnant wife, whom he tied the knot with in March, gave him the green light to focus on his music. "Its been a lil hard at times, I obviously miss Chicago and family and working on other stuff, but there truly is no joy like making a project," he explained. "Somehow I always forget that i’m so, so good at this. And every night i surprise myself again. July is gonna be bittersweet because as much as i can’t wait to be done, the process is the best part!" 

"Yall should thank Kirsten cause she dont gotta share me wit NOBODY," he continued "But she knows what i do and is handling this pregnancy and our family with so much grace. Babe I have to appreciate u supporting me all these years and I swear i can’t wait to get juked on to these new songs."

The project will be a follow up to 2016's Coloring Book. See Chance's post below.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’ve been really happy the past few weeks. My wife gave me the go ahead to put everything else on hold and really go to work on my debut album. Its been a lil hard at times, I obviously miss Chicago and family and working on other stuff, but there truly is no joy like making a project. Somehow I always forget that i’m so, so good at this. And every night i surprise myself again. July is gonna be bittersweet because as much as i can’t wait to be done, the process is the best part! Yall should thank Kirsten cause she dont gotta share me wit NOBODY. But she knows what i do and is handling this pregnancy and our family with so much grace. Babe I have to appreciate u supporting me all these years and I swear i can’t wait to get juked on to these new songs. --------
