The track could appear on Chance’s forthcoming LP ‘Surf’, which will be a collaboration piece with Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment.

“It’s a big step for all of us all putting our heads together and letting Nico [Segal, aka Donnie Trumpet] hold the reigns and carry it,” the rapper previously said of ‘Surf’. “There’s a lot of great instrumentation. A lot of input from cool writers.”

Speaking about the collaborators he has worked with recently, though not stating that they are necessarily involved with ‘Surf’, Chance continued: “We worked with Migos. We worked with J. Cole. We did some work with Emily King just last week. Somebody who helped us out a lot with just getting into the project was Rick Rubin. And Frank Ocean. There’s been a lot of just people in the studio watching us work almost like a house band. People come in just to watch us jam out.”
