The Big Day is coming soon. That’s the title of Chance The Rapper’s long-awaited debut studio album, which is scheduled to arrive next week on July 26th.
The Chicago rapper used The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as a platform to unveil the cover art, title and release date of his forthcoming set, but only after the TV host pre-ordered the album during their chat. The new LP is a big deal for Chance as he noted “I haven’t sold my projects before. All my mixtapes were free.”
The hip-hop star made history in May 2016 with his independently-released mixtape Coloring Book, that went on to become the first streaming-exclusive project to peak at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. His earlier efforts Acid Rap and 10 Day were made available via retail and streaming services for the first time in late June.
