Chance The Rapper has recently won 3 Grammy’s without selling any of his music. So dope! Although, that might change next time around when he releases his first official debut album. Yes Coloring Book was not his “debut”, despite it being his third solo project.
Could Chance be signing to a major label too? Only time will tell as he sits down for an interview with Complex about the next album, Grammy wins , and of course being a dad.
“I might actually sell this album. That’s, like, a big step in itself. I kind of hate the fact that I can’t chart, really. I can chart, but the way they have the streaming shit set up is weak as fuck. It’s unfair,” he told Complex. “1,500 streams is the equivalent to one [album sale], and that’s just that’s unfair. Nobody listens to their songs [1,500] times when they buy it—fuck outta here! So, it makes it hard. I can’t really compete with other people. Not that the charts matter at all, but c’mon.”
Chance also admitted that he didn’t have a new album in the works yet, but he’s envisioning it to be something different from his previous efforts:
“I want to make something that’s got a wider scope. 10 Day was all about getting suspended. Acid Rap was a lot about acid. Coloring Book was a lot about being a father and God. I think whatever this album is, it wouldn’t be so centered. Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book was like a trilogy in itself. One aesthetic, one goal. Whatever my next thing is, it’ll be a bit bigger. Like, maybe there’ll be some type of visual component to it. Like it’ll be a movie, or it’ll be a play, or some type of tour. But something a little bit different than Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book.”
