In a surprise move, Chance the Rapper premiered his new video for "Same Drugs" Monday via Facebook Live. Giving fans a 10-minute warning, Chance tweeted out a quick invitation before hitting FB:
Shortly after announcing the premiere, Chance shared a brief explainer on why he decided to go with Facebook Live for the "Same Drugs" unveiling. "I say, yo, I wanna put a video that I already recorded on Instagram Live, I wanna put it on Twitter Live, I wanna put it on Snapchat, and they said no," Chance said. "But would you look at that? That's Facebook Live holding me down with a countdown to an HD premiere of my shit."
The video, which thankfully includes plenty of puppets, is an extension of the visuals found on the Magnificent Coloring World Tour and utilizes an alternate version of "Same Drugs" featuring contributions from Eryn Allen Kane, Yebba, John Legend, Francis Starlite, and Macie Stewart.
Director Jake Schreier's "Same Drugs" video comes just days before Chance the Rapper is set to take the stage at the 2017 Grammy Awards, where Chance stands to bag seven honors. Additional confirmed performers for Sunday's broadcast include Sturgill Simpson, Daft Punk, Metallica, Adele, Anderson .Paak, The Weeknd, Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars, Alicia Keys, and Maren Morris.
