(Watch) Chance The Rapper and Jeremih Release Holiday Album

GRAMMY Award-winner Chance the Rapper released his highly anticipated joint album project with Jeremih, Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving. You can stream the album HERE.

The album features two new original songs by Chance – “The Return” and “Who’s To Say” – and is packaged together as the perfect gift resurfacing holiday hits from the previous underground fan-favorite, Merry Christmas: Lil Mama volumes 1 and 2 mixtapes by Chance and Jeremih (released in 2016 and 2017 respectively). The special collection of songs is a gift to the fans celebrating the Holidays and New Year and is available for the first-time ever across all streaming platforms.

Ahead of the album release, Chance shared the all-new original Christmas song and video for “The Return.” The track finds Chance rapping about the joys of giving over laid-back production, “It’s the return of the gifted gifter/the Secret Santa grab bag sifter,” he raps on the track. “The smile bringer/the joy inside the child lingers.”

The album release  follows the heart-warming news that Jeremih recently overcame weeks-long Covid-19 battle resulting in a harrowing case of the current global pandemic virus. The Chicago-native was released from a local hospital on December 4, 2020. To celebrate and express a moment of gratefulness for Jeremih’s recovery, Chance and Jeremih started to liven up the Holiday season with the first video release of  “Are U Live” from Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving. “Are U Live” popularized the “Woah” dance which stormed social media and soon became a viral sensation which Chance shared on Twitter.

Merry Christmas Lil Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving is a modern take with a nostalgic nod to Christmas classics, with Chance and Jeremih taking listeners on a unique journey by reimagining Holiday music to create both fun and family-oriented sonic moments while centering Chicago’s rich musical history. The album of all original music festively blends hip-hop, R&B, soul, funk and blues and flips the script on the traditional Holiday songs.

By releasing on all streaming platforms, Chance and Jeremih’s Merry Christmas Lil Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving has officially cemented its place as a classic holiday album for years to come.
