Fans were excited to hear that Chance The Rapper would be performing new music on Monday night's episode of The Late Show, but they didn't know just how new the music was. During the performance, Late Show host Stephen Colbert tweeted that the song, which features Daniel Caesar, was written just two days before (the day after his appearance, Chance tweeted out the song's title: "#FirstWorldProblems.")


Speaking to Colbert in an interview before the performance, Chance explained how he came to be playing a brand new song on the show.

"I was supposed to do "Grown Ass Kid" tonight and I called you up and said I couldn't do that anymore for reasons I don't want to go into [on TV]," he explained. "We had to come up with a song in a matter of days and I wanted to do something fresh. Not to lie, I've been in the studio a lot lately, cooking up some yammers. They're honestly great. I premiered "Angels," the first song off Coloring Book, here [Late Show] so why not do a new song for you tonight."

The Chicago rapper has been featured on several tracks this year, but hasn't dropped any new material of his own. Caesar, on the other hand, is coming off of the release of his debut album Freudian shared last month. If you missed the live performance, watch a video of the performance below.

On September 26, this post was updated to reflect the announced song title.
