Chance, born Chancelor Bennett, also wrote a short message to express his feelings about his birthday. 

The performer’s statement read: ‘Best gift u can get me is showing someone they’re a child of God today.’ 

The rapper’s message appeared to allude to the title of his newest single, which was released on March 24.

Chance’s track was the result of a collaboration with singer Moses Sumney, as well as artist Naila Opiangah, who designed the release’s cover art.

The songwriter also wrote a short message that was shared to his Instagram account just before the song’s release to share his thoughts about the track. 

The hitmaker made a point of noting that the recording was ‘about confidence, purpose and process.

Chance also publicly expressed his gratitude for Opiangah’s contribution to the release.

He thanked her for ‘believing in me and working with me to create this very vulnerable piece, I am eternally grateful for and in awe of your gifts.’

The performer’s most recent album, entitled The Big Day, was made available to the public in July of 2019.

Chance’s record, which also served as his full-length debut, followed his thoughts leading up to his marriage day, which occurred in March of that year.

The album also featured numerous guests, including Megan Thee Stallion, Shawn Mendes and John Legend, among others.

The Big Day was met with a generally positive reception from critics, although many of the rapper’s longtime fans were alienated by the uplifting subject material featured on the record.
