Hallelujah. Fresh off his performance with Alicia Keys at Keep a Child Alive’s Black Ball, Chance the Rapper gets spiritual in the black-and-white video for his Coloring Book cut “How Great,” which was shot entirely on an iPhone.
After prompting users to lock their screens, viewers are greeted by Chance’s cousin Nicole, who sings the praises of God on the gospel opener.
Then the orientation flips and a female choir joins Nicole before Chance—clad in his “3” hat and jacket—jumps in to bless the track. Jay Electronica follows, entering from a makeshift door to spit his verse alongside Chano before throwing up the Roc.
I'm stalling on the video cause it's so different from my other videos. idk if this is one of those videos everyone will love instantly lol

At first, Chance was apprehensive about releasing the video. “I’m stalling on the video cause it’s so different from my other videos,” he tweeted. “idk if this is one of those videos everyone will love instantly lol.”
Take it to church with Lil Chano and friends.
