Watch Chance The Rapper’s heartfelt duet with a puppet in his ‘Same Drugs’ video

Chance The Rapper’s third full-length mixtape, Coloring Book, has many highlights – one of which being the intimate gospel ballad ‘Same Drugs’. Now the track has a visual accompaniment, featuring a Jim Henson-style puppet joining Chance at a piano.

Chance claimed on Twitter that tech companies, including Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, rejected requests to debut the video via their respective live functions (saying that the only option was to film a screen on his phone for live broadcast. Facebook accommodated the request, with the video debuting their live in HD.

The track features additional vocals from Eryn Koehn, Yebba, John Legend, Francis Starlite and Macie Stewart.

Chance The Rapper was in Australia across the 2016-2017 New Year’s period for Beyond The Valley, Origin, Field Day, and headline shows.
