Album Review: Chance The Rapper – The Big Day

With the album coming out late on Friday, he is still predicted to debut at #1 with about 110k-125k first week. Chance’s “Hot Shower” is leading on the streaming platforms, sitting Top 5 at Apple Music and holding the #7 spot at Spotify. This is actually sad, and a reflection of today’s poor taste in music. Out of all the great music on Chance’s album, the general perfect picked the one song where he dumbs down his lyrical content to match today’s mediocre rap styles of DaBaby.

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged, but to be honest, there hasn’t been much that has caught my attention lately.

But this Chance album has GOT ME!

Chance has released his debut album and it was well worth the wait. Filled with top notch features, melodies, and most importantly REAL RAP! It is so very refreshing to hear an album that celebrates what the everyday man can really appreciate. He talks about rededicating his life to God, finding true love with his wife, loving his brother, and more. These topics are so different than your everyday rapper now.

Out of all the great music on Chance’s album, the general perfect picked the one song where he dumbs down his lyrical content to match today’s mediocre rap styles of DaBaby.

Other features on the album was the quite impressive Nicki Minaj. With not 1 but 2 verses on the album, she offered up some of the best verses that she has had in years. There are many songs that provide the long missing R&B vibes of the 90s, some provided by legendary divas SWV and En Vogue. Megan The Stallion‘s feature on “Handsome” was a surprise, and like “Hot Shower“, it wasn’t too impressive. Her bars are very amateur and repetitive. I’m anxiously awaiting the day that she elevates her skillset and has the lyrical content that matches her flow.

Overall this is an impressive body of work, and I look forward to see how it fairs at the Grammys. It’s very deserving of more Grammys.

When Aaron hit the stage his electrifying performances compared him to the greats the came before him which is exactly why Nick Cannon and so many others saw the star power in him. In no time he was co-hosting ‘The Night Life’ alongside Nick on Nickelodeon where the also gave him the opportunity to become a special celebrity correspondent on Teen Nick. It was clear that his star was steady on the rise, but as label politics changed his time at Def Jam was over, but that only fueled him to continue his success as an indie artist. Over the years he’s also found success as a songwriter working with K-Pop stars EXO and NU’EST which kept him fulfilled, but his fans were ready for him to return to music. Now he’s back and better than ever with the release of his latest single ‘Tabanca’ as he teamed up with Ronnie Young Jr and Micky Monday on the track. The buzz worthy single is just the re-introduction he needed to show the world his new and refreshing sound.
