After a short delay, Chance The Rapper's highly anticipated debut studio album is finally here. The Big Day hit streaming services shortly after 1 p.m. ET on Friday (July 26), which marks the first release of a project that the Chicago native will make for sale.
Chano initially made the announcement last week (July 16) during a guest appearance on Fallon. The 26-year-old revealed the album, or "owbum" as Chance says, to be titled The Big Day, as well as the translucent CD-ROM styled artwork. “I haven’t sold my projects before. All my mixtapes were free,” he explained.
Those that purchase the 22-track LP over at ChanceRaps.com will have priority access to pre-sale tickets to Chance The Rapper's upcoming world tour. Dates for the trek are yet to be announced, but should be on the way soon.
The effort boasts an absolutely loaded guest list that includes contributions from Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Megan Thee Stallion, Playboi Carti, Da Baby, Taylor Bennett, Lil Durk, Shawn Mendes, Smino, and more.
