The Chicago native beat out Desiigner's “Panda," Drake's “Pop Style,” Fat Joe and Remy Ma's “All the Way Up” and ScHoolboy Q's “That Part" featuring Kanye West. This was Chance's second win of the night. The former XXL Freshman also won Best New Artist at the 2017 Grammy Awards, beating out The Chainsmokers, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini and Anderson .Paak.
"No Problem," which was a single from Chance's third mixtape, Coloring Book, was a monster hit. The song peaked at No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100 and collected millions of streams and views online. The music video, which was released in May of last year, currently has over 80 million views on YouTube.
Last year, Chance voiced his opinion for the Grammys to recognize free music. The campaign got huge support from artists and the public. Soon after, the Grammys announced they would change the way they recognize free projects. Last month, Chance went on Twitter to announce that projects released via SoundCloud would be eligible for the 2018 Grammys.
