Chicago rapper features in the pop star's new promo
The pair’s track ‘Confident’ was first released in December as part of the Canadian pop star’s 10-week Music Monday series, in which he unveiled material from his 2013 album ‘Journals’ each week.
Chance The Rapper – real name Chancelor Bennett – released his acclaimed second mixtape ‘Acid Rap’ in April of this year (2013). Earlier this month, Chance revealed to NME that he is moving in with James Blake to work on music together in LA. The pair have previously collaborated on a remix of Blake’s song ‘Life Round Here’.
Earlier today, news broke that Justin Bieber has been charged with assaulting a limo driver. The pop star turned himself into a Toronto police station over the alleged incident yesterday (January 29), and was charged with one count of assault. The singer’s lawyer says he is innocent.
The charge comes a week after the pop star was arrested for a different incident in Florida and charged with drink driving after a police officer pulled him over on suspicion of racing a hired yellow Lamborghini on a public street. He was later released on bail of $2,500 (£1,500).
In January, police in California searched Bieber’s home after he allegedly threw eggs at his neighbour’s house. The outcome of the search is still unclear.
Yesterday, a petition filed on the White House website by a member of the public requesting Bieber’s deportation from the US gained 100,000 signatures.
