Chance the Rapper is heaping high praise on Justin Bieber’s upcoming album, comparing the work to Michael Jackson’s 1979 classic Off the Wall.
During a livestream promoting the release of Justin’s new track “Holy,” the Chicago born rapper took his review of Bieber’s latest work to ostentatious levels.
"I will say, this is no cap at all, I said this to you in Chicago, it's some of the best music I've heard, period," Chance said.
"It reminds me of when Michael Jackson made 'Off The Wall.' Everybody's who's listening... I promise you, it's literally groundbreaking music."
Jackson’s post-disco groove album sole more than 20 million copies worldwide. It’s a landmark work that displayed the range and quality of his talent. Needless to say, fans took to Twitter expressing opinions on Chance’s hot take.
“It’s just hard to explain and I don’t want to give away the drawings and all that stuff, but you went crazy,” Chance went on saying during the stream. “I’m just excited everyone gets to hear this.”
JB’s latest single, “Holy,” features Chance the Rapper with a slick music video directed by Colin Tilley. The video portrays Justin as an oil-rig worker whose plant gets shut down due to a “global situation.”
Joined by actress and singer Ryan Destiny, the two deal with pretty heavy stuff during the five and a half minute video. But after luckily encountering a kind stranger played by Wilmer Valderrama, things start to look up.
