Right on schedule—or just a few hours late, Chance the Rapper's long-teased album The Big Day is here.
Although most fans had been expecting the massive, 22-song LP to arrive at earlier at midnight, as most albums tend to arrive, it wasn't until early Friday afternoon that Chance's record was finally available on streaming and digital platforms.
Following three mixtapes, this new project is billed as Chance's official debut album—yes, seven years after the release of his 10 Day tape.
The Big Day is loaded with guest appearances, including Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, who had teased a Chance collab for years, as well as Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Francis and the Lights, Nicki Minaj, Smino, Timbaland, Shawn Mendes, MadeinTYO, DaBaby and more.
Late last month, Chance assured fans the record would indeed be coming in July when he made his previous mixtapes available across streaming platforms. He also announced plans to release those projects on vinyl.
