Chance The Rapper performed his new track “Child Of God” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The song initially arrived in late March and featues vocals from Moses Sumney.

The original music video saw Chance rapping in the same room his 2021 music video for “The Heart & The Tongue” was filmed in. The visuals feature artist Naïla Opiangah in the background painting on a canvas behind him. Chance and Opiangah first met on a trip to Accra, Ghana and recently debuted their joint contemporary art project titled Child Of God at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. In his performance on Colbert, Chance brought Opiangah’s artwork with him to set the stage. Opiangah’s painting can also be seen as the single’s cover art.

Elsewhere in the interview, Chance spoke about collaborating with Sumney and meeting the musician in Ghana to record the song. Prior to the release of the song, the rapper took to Instagram to tease his return with a number of posts showcasing his writing and recording sessions. Just last month, the rapper unveiled snippets of a new social commentating track where he rapped about the death of the first American president George Washington.

Elsewhere in music, Pusha T talks to Charlamagne Tha God about his experience working with JAY-Z, Pharrell and Ye.
