    Chance the Rapper has released his official debut studio album, The Big Day.

    The 20-track record includes contributions from Kanye West on lead track, “Big Fish,” as well as Francis and the Lights on “Not Single Anymore.” TisaKorean also features on the LP, assisting Chano on the previously released single “Groceries,” produced by Murda Beatz.

    Back in 2017, Chance revealed The Big Day would veer in a new conceptual direction compared to his previous projects.

    10 Day was all about getting suspended. Acid Rap was a lot about acid. Coloring Book was a lot about being a father and God,” Chance told Complex then. “I think whatever this album is, it wouldn’t be so centered. Acid Rap and 10 Day and Coloring Book was like a trilogy in itself. One aesthetic, one goal. Whatever my next thing is, it’ll be a bit bigger.”

    The Big Day is Chance’s first solo release since his record-breaking Coloring Book mixtape, which won the rapper an award for Best Rap Album at the 2017 Grammys.
