Chance the Rapper Took Over Colbert’s Late Show, Turning it Into a Joyous Dance Party

So Chance the Rapper and Stephen Colbert have supposedly had a secret collaboration brewing. Many hoped the fruits of those labors would be unveiled Monday night, during the former’s appearance on the latter’s Late Show. That was only kind of the case, as Chance world-premiered his latest single, “Angels” (watch below), while Colbert sat by politely, a halo heaped atop his heavenly coiffed head. The divine record features Saba on the chorus, with the sounds of Chance’s Social Experiment providing the backing and complementing what is a very fun, mostly upbeat hit — one that will make you mourn summer if you haven’t done that enough already. “Angels” is available for a free download here, and the future hopefully holds more (especially Chance-Colbert–wise). Good news: It’s 2015, so be prepared for whatever, whenever.
