Watch Chance The Rapper’s “How Great” Video, Shot On An iPhone
The official video features a live take with Jay Electronica, Francis and the Lights, and Chance’s cousin Nicole.
A lot has been made of the heavy gospel influence on Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book, and now the most explicitly gospely song from the record has its own visuals. Chance shared the video this afternoon via Twitter, before taking it down temporarily and reupping shortly after.
The official video, shot entirely on an iPhone, is a series of straightforward black-and-white live performance shots. The song is essentially the same, except for live vocal takes, including a stunning one from the song's star, Chance's cousin Nicole. It's a cool, subtle subversion of the "official video" concept, with a personal touch. Watch above.
