Chance The Rapper Covers ‘Arthur’ Theme Song With Ziggy Marley and Stephen Colbert
The kids show Arthur made a viral pop culture appearance last year when hilarious hip-hop-related memes of the cartoon started circulating on the internet. Last night (Jan. 27), Chance The Rapper had a guest spot on The Late Night Show With Stephen Colbert, in a colorful video for a cover of the Ziggy Marley-penned intro track of the beloved kid's show.
In the clip, Colbert reminisces about how dope the show Arthur was, and falls asleep and dreams about being in a visual for the theme, along with Chance and Ziggy. In front of an animated background, the entertainers joyfully bop around while covering the happy tune. Chance even throws in some extra bars (above).
Recently, Chance has been teasing some major collabs that are on the horizon. Two weeks ago, Lil Chano was in the studio with DJ Khaled, working on the We The Best boss' upcoming LP. “IM UP TO SOMETHING ALERT!!,” Khaled captioned a photo of Chance in the booth. “Fan luv here’s a update !!! @chancetherapper is in the booth ! FAN LUV REMEMBER EVERYTING TOP SECRET !! @wethebestmusic!!!! #DJKHALED NEW ALBUM IN THE WORKS!.”
The Windy City rapper was also recently building with Anderson .Paak in the lab.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Chance and Frank Ocean will be headlining the 2017 Sasquatch Festival. The event takes place Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, and will feature additional performances from Mac Miller, Kaytranada, Aesop Rock, Joey Purp and more.
