The original song, from Chance’s album Coloring Book, is a jubilant opening song featuring Kanye West and the Chicago Children’s Choir. SBTRKT’s version is much heavier, featuring harsher instrumentation and a faster beat.
About the remix, the producer said in a statement on SoundCloud, “It’s been on my drive for a year or so…. [I] was shared the vocals by Chance and Pat, his manager, back in late 2016. [I’m a] big fan of Chance and the original song, so [it] was fun to give it my own take.”
SBTRKT has been gaining traction in the last few years, releasing Save Yourself, in 2016 which featured hip-hop artists like The-Dream and D.R.A.M.
