Chance The Rapper Makes Debut on Billboard’s Rock Airplay Chart
Chance The Rapper is breaking new barriers. The Chicago MC recently made his debut on Billboard's Rock Airplay chart, after his collab with Francis and the Lights, "May I Have This Dance," premiered on the ranking this week.
The song landed at No. 48 on the chart, according to Billboard. The original version of the track was first released on the group's 2016 project, Farewell, Starlite!. But the single received a bump in its stock earlier this year when Chano was added to the remix and featured in the music video.
This isn't the first time the two have linked up. Francis appeared on the track, "Summer Friends," off Chance's most recent offering, Coloring Book.
In other Chance-related news, it was recently announced that the Acid Rap rapper will be curating and performing at the upcoming Obama Foundation Summit concert.
Taking place in Chicago on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, the two-day event will draw leaders from all over the country to discus pressing issues. It will close out with a show featuring Chance and also Gloria Estefan, the National and some special guests. Chano revealed the news via a YouTube video. "As soon as I heard about the summit I jumped at the opportunity," he noted. "There’s a lot of great things going on Chicago and I love the collaborative effort of being able to be at some of these talks and hear what people have going on and figure out how I fit in.”
He added, "I'm excited to see Gloria Estefan and The National and...well I can't say right now. But, all my friends that are coming. It's gon' be fire."
Chance has also been nominated for a 2017 Soul Train award.
