Watch Chance the Rapper’s New iPhone-Filmed ‘How Great’ Video

Clip features rapper’s cousin Nicole, Jay Electronica, Francis and the Lights

Chance the Rapper has unveiled his new video for “How Great,” which hails from his excellent Coloring Book mixtape-LP. The gospel-tipped tune features the rapper’s cousin Nicole, Jay Electronica and Francis and the Lights.

Shot entirely on an iPhone, the black-and-white clip opens with Nicole singing a cappella before an all-female backing gospel choir provides spine-tingling accompaniment.

Chance makes his appearance, first in shadow, before he struts into frame to the beat and delivers his verses. Later, Jay Electronica makes his grand entrance through a side door while rapping and Chance adds vocal interplay alongside him for the uplifting clip.

While the video is viewable in other formats, it’s optimized for cell viewing in a locked portrait orientation.

Earlier this month, Chance performed a reworking of his “Blessings (Reprise)“on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The rapper has also been tapped to perform at the White House’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting on December 1st.
