Chance the Rapper Has a ‘Lady Friend’ on Valentine’s Day Single

Chicago youngster enlists his Social Experiment band for another standalone track

Chance the Rapper and his band the Social Experiment are deep in the midst of prepping their debut album Surf, but being the sweethearts that they are, they decided to release a track for Valentine’s Day on Saturday afternoon. There’s no word yet on whether “Lady Friend” will end up appearing on the record, but its a laid-back piano ballad that seems appropriate for the occasion. The Acid Rapper mumbles throughout the hook about how his lady, before launching into a typically elastic verse that makes reference to cuddling and Ben and Jerry’s. Oh, and there’s enough schmaltzy saxophone to make it the sort of Hallmark-y effort you might expect from a Valentine’s Day track. You can listen to the whole thing below, which portends big things for Surf, whether it ends up included or not.
