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.
