Chance The Rapper (Again) Teases New Music With Childish Gambino

"Me and Donald [Glover] have more songs together."

For years, we've known that Chance The Rapper and Donald Glover have been planning to release a joint project, even going so far as to tease the existence of a collaborative EP, but as both artists have continued to literally grow independent of one another, the likelihood that the pairing will actually deliver a full-length body of work has dramatically decreased.

Late last week, however, in a live stream on Instagram, Chance confirmed that not only was he recently in the studio with Glover (and Fetty Wap!) but that the pair has recorded new material. "Me and Donald have more songs together," said Chance.

In June, Glover announced that he plans to retire his Childish Gambino alias, so it's possible the pair is trying to make good on their new music promise before Glover's rap moniker is no more.

On top of their various endeavors inside and out of music—Chance launched a nonprofit called Social Works in 2016, while Glover is involved in various movie projects and is writing and producing the second season of his Golden Globe-winning sitcom Atlanta—both artists also recently became parents. As a new parent myself, I can tell you one thing for certain: there is never enough time in the day to accomplish everything.

Based on Chance's latest comments, on a scale of 1 to Kendrick and J. Cole's imaginary joint album, let's readjust our collective expectations for a Chance x Gambino project and bump it up from "yeah, that's totally never happening" to "so, you're tellin' me there's a chance."

If nothing else, we might at least be the recipients of a few loose records.
