Chance The Rapper has seen a huge spike in his Spotify streams overnight following his success at the Grammys last night (February 12).
The Chicago-born rapper, who released his third mixtape ‘Coloring Book’ last year, had a very successful night in LA, picking up a total of three awards (Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album). He also performed a medley of songs from ‘Coloring Book’, backed by a gospel choir – which you can watch below.
The after-effects from Chance’s billboard day are now being registered, with a reported 200% increase in his Spotify streams being reported in the hours after his appearance at the Grammys (via The Fader). Streams of the ‘Coloring Book’ song ‘How Great’ – which was performed as part of the aforementioned medley – have soared by 406%.

Picking up the award for Best New Artist, Chance thanked both his faith and his family in an emotional speech.
“I claim this victory in the name of the lord. I thank God for my mother and my father who have supported me since I was young,” Chance said. “And for all of Chicago.”
