Chance the Rapper Debuts "Angels" Single, Performs on "Stephen Colbert": Watch

Chance the Rapper crashed the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night (Oct. 26) to perform "Angels," a kinetic new single that he and Colbert had teased as a collaboration. The Colbert guest verse never happened, but "Angels" is a doozy.

"I ain't changed my number since the seventh grade / This is for my day one, 10 years, seven days / A week, n---as never tired, on they Kevin Gates / And if they rest in peace, they bunny-hopping heaven's gates," Chance spits in the second verse of "Angels," which features Saba on the hook. Prior to the Social Experiment–assisted Colbert performance, "Angels" was released on iTunes and Apple Music as a free download.

Chance The Rapper has been teasing the release of his third mixtape, which would follow 2013's Acid Rap as well as Surf, his free album with Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment from earlier this year. The Chicago native is one of the main draws at this year's Voodoo fest, taking place in New Orleans Oct. 29 - Nov. 1.
