#TuesdayMotivation: Watch Chance The Rapper Perfrom "Blessings"

Opinions about Chance The Rappers' latest album vary. Many were taken back by the idea that it has been dubbed "A Gospel Album, With Cursing". Irregardless of fan backlash and polarizing views, one cannot deny the meteoric rise of the Chicago born Rapper. Just last night, Chance the Rapper stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform a special stripped down version of his spiritual single "Blessings."
                            
Chance was joined on stage by fan favorites Anthony Hamilton, Ty Dolla $ign, Raury, D.R.A.M. and full Gospel choir for the “Reprise” version of the single, which was different from the version of “Blessings” he performed on the show back in May.

It should be noted that even though the two versions differ musically and lyrically, the message however stayed the same. The refrain of this version featured Chance and his background singers leading the choir in the chorus, “Are you ready, for your blessings? Are you ready for your miracle?"
