Justin Bieber has many fans, but we’re not sure there’s any as vocal about their support as Chance The Rapper.
The pair are currently promoting new single ‘Holy,’ which is the first single lifted from the singer’s upcoming new album. A project that’ll be arriving just months after latest LP ‘Changes.’
And while some have wondered whether the rush to release new material is due to the lack of resonance of the ‘Yummy’ led album, Chance seems to be chalking it to fate. For, he has given a ringing endorsement to the incoming record.
So much so that he’s drawn eye-brow raising comparisons to Michael Jackson.
Full story below…
In a live chat with JB, Chance – who recently vocalized his support for Kanye West‘s presidential bid – drew a link between the as yet untitled LP and Jackson’s solo breakthrough ‘Off The Wall.’
He said of the project:
“No cap at all. It’s some of the best music I’ve heard…period. Like when Michael Jackson made ‘Off The Wall.’ Everybody listening, I promise you. It’s literally groundbreaking music”

The literal definition of doing too much. Saying too much. Reaching too much.
Bieber is generally pretty unproblematic and caters to a lane that responds well to his efforts. But on his best day, with his most most successful song, the levels of qualitative brilliance established by MJ are just not in reachable or conceivable distance for him.
And that’s not even shade. Because the irony is that he’d probably say the same.
Chance really ought to do better.
