Chicago rap wunderkind Chance the Rapper hasn't dropped any solo releases since 2013's truly great mixtape Acid Rap, but he's working on a collaborative album with the musician Donnie Trumpet, who plays in Chance's live band, the Social Experiment. That album is called Surf, and one of its first singles was "Sunday Candy," a jazzy, jittery song featuring that classic Chance yalp and a hummable chorus from Jamila Woods.
Musical candy for your Sunday
The song is big and optimistic, almost like a Broadway number, so it makes sense that its visual nods to musical theater. The video, labeled a "short film," was directed by Austin Vesely, Ian Eastwood, and Chance himself. It features a '50s-style candy shop(pe), suspenders, White Sox varsity jackets, and some really great choreographed dance moves. Also, I don't know if you realized this, but today is also Sunday. Grab some gumdrops and enjoy.
