Chance the Rapper Talks About The Voice Experience
Chance told Audacy host Julia that his experience on The Voice “felt a lot like camp,” adding, “You meet all these cool people, get to know each other, get some inside jokes, get some cool nights out, and you build something great together.”
When asked about something he never expected when he signed on, Chance said he was surprised by how much time he got to spend working with the artists on his team. He said he enjoyed “having fun with music” through his time on the show.
As for what song he would choose for his own audition, Chance named “Thong Song” by Sisqó. He explained, “You have to do something you know the words to … You want to be able to flex the runs. That’s very important, especially on a show like The Voice.”
Season 23 was Chance’s first time as a coach. He ended up making it to the finale with the sister trio Sorelle, who finished the competition in fourth place.
Chance Teased His Upcoming New Album
During his conversation with Audacy, Chance also gave an update about his highly anticipated new album Star Line Gallery. The rapper has teased that fans can expect the album next year, and that each song will have a physical art piece to go along with it.
“It’s one of my proudest projects in terms of writing and artistic vision,” Chance shared. “There’s an immense amount of work to be done with it. But it’s cool ‘cause I feel like with the love and intentionality that goes into making each physical art piece gives me an opportunity to show people in these museum spaces what I’m working on as I go, the highs and the lows, kind of like a preview to the project.”
The album gets its name from the Black Star Line Festival, which Chance hosted with Vic Mensa in Ghana earlier this year. The festival will be back for a second year in Jamaica.
