Know what God said when he made the first rainbow
Just throw this at the end if I’m too late for the intro

― Kanye West (Ft. Chance The Rapper, Kelly Price, Kirk Franklin & The-Dream) – Ultralight Beam


The pair were united to perform the LP track on Saturday Night Live this weekend (February 13). Watch the performance in the player below.

Previously, Hot New Hip Hop, West took to Twitter to explain the missing record to fans.

“It’s Chance’s fault the album not out yet… he really wanted Waves on that Bitch… we in the lab now…” he wrote.


The track ‘Waves’ was originally due to appear on the record, also called ‘Waves’ at one point, before West changed the tracklisting.

Chance The Rapper has also tweeted about adding the song to the album, saying: “I fought everyone to keep Waves on the album. I spent all night finishing it. The world is better because of it.”

He then posted a picture of the album’s new tracklist with ‘Waves’ included, captioned “Done. #TLOP”.
