Chance the Rapper, besides being one of the hottest up-and-coming rappers, is also pretty young and kind of a weirdo. The result of the latter two facts is his newest single, “Wonderful Everyday: Arthur.” Yep, it’s a cover of the theme song of the Canadian/American cartoon about a young boy-aardvark. (It’s mostly Chance singing, so we also suggest you hear his rapping-rapping if you haven’t before.) The result is a strange joy. To add in the strangeness and joyfulness, Wyclef Jean and Jessie Ware contribute vocals. Will it singlehandedly result in Hollywood fast-tracking an Arthur movie? Let’s say yes.
