The breakthrough Chicago rapper teamed up with the Canadian megastar on 'Confident.'
Fresh off his 'The Worst Guys' collaboration with Childish Gambino, Chance The Rapper is back with a new collab and this time his partner is none other than Mr. Justin Bieber, the Canadian teeny bopper who is trying very hard to re-adjust his brand so that it includes the concepts "adult" and "cool" and, ideally, "bad boy."
Over the past few weeks, Bieber has been dropping new tunes as part of his #MusicMondays campaign; this Chance collab, 'Confident,' is the final installmant. (Perhaps worth noting: Bieber's only other #MusicMondays collaborator was R. Kelly whom, like Chance, is from Chicago.) 'Confident' is a fun, bouncy tune about a confident woman who has Bieber's full attention. Chance does not really do much. He has a short verse that lasts about 30 seconds.
One thing Chance's Bieber and Gambino collaborations have in common is that both do not contain very much Chance. But that's okay because we prefer Chance when he does his own stuff anyway, which is why we recently named his 'Acid Rap' mixtape one of the 15 Best Rap Mixtapes of 2013. That's also why we named him one of the 20 Breakthrough Artists of the year.
'Confident' and 'The Worst Guys,' however, were not Chance's only new collab tracks to drop in the last few days. He also appeared on 'Suitcase,' a new tune with fellow Chicagoan Vic Mensa, whose 'INNANETAPE' was alongside 'Acid Rap' in our Best Rap Mixtapes list. Chance has much more room to stretch out and rap here with Vic. Listen to 'Suitcase' below.
