Chance the Rapper is on track to have his biggest year ever—and so far, that’s meant pursuing the unexpected. There was the Madonna/Mike Tyson track, and now? An earnestly crooning Chance over the jazzy stylings of his band The Social Experiment, singing a Valentine’s ode to his “Lady Friend.” The track showcases the 21-year-old MC’s softer side, his voice wavering a little as he sings about his “Ben & Jerry friend.”
This could be another track from Chance’s upcoming collaborative record with Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment, Surf…or it might just be a festive one-off. Download the track below, and look for out for more soulful sounds from Chance—he’s been hanging out with Erykah Badu, after all.
