Chance the Rapper Releases Joyous ‘Somewhere in Paradise’ With R. Kelly, Jeremih

Chance the Rapper continued his late-night show circuit on Sunday, but rather than debuting a new song onstage — as he did with “Angels” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week — this time SPIN‘s 2013 Rapper of the Year gave listeners some advance notice. Complex points out that Chance posted “Somewhere in Paradise,” featuring Jeremih (who brought out Chance for his Chicago set this week) and R. Kelly and co-produced by Purity Ring’s Corin Roddick and the Social Experiment, at midnight on Friday night. He then brought the gospel-tinged song’s clattering castanets to Saturday Night Live, where he also performed Surf standout “Sunday Candy.” Watch both performances here and download “Somewhere in Paradise” for free below.
