Chance the Rapper had another one of his random Twitter musings over the weekend. This time, it was centered around his cravings for Wendy’s discontinued spicy chicken nuggets, which spurred a viral campaign to bring them back.
“Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today,” the rapper tweeted on Saturday.
A couple of hours and a few thousand retweets later, the fast-food chain responded to the rapper’s plea with a promise to bring back its much-loved spicy nuggets—only if its tweet reached two million likes.
Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance.
The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.
Let’s freakin’ do this! https://t.co/qrtvWXjj9V

Chano’s legion of fans and other Wendy’s spicy chicken nugget devotees immediately jumped onto it, and in less than 48 hours, the tweet surpassed two million likes. Wendy’s later confirmed that its nuggets are expected to return to its menu imminently.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy!

To celebrate the good news, Chance revealed that the follow-up to 2016’s Coloring Book “comes out in less than two months,” confirming his earlier tweet about a possible July album drop.
