NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts have become an institution, but they don’t often feature actual superstars. This time, they got one. Chance The Rapper stopped by NPR’s Washington, DC offices before a recent show at the massive outdoor shed venue Jiffy Lube Live and performed a couple of songs for NPR’s cameras. In his Tiny Desk Concert, Chance did a laid-back version of the glowing Coloring Book deep cut “Juke Jam” and covered Stevie Wonder’s 1974 classic “They Won’t Go When I Go,” both with his touring band backing him up. In between those two songs, Chance recited a new poem called “The Other Side,” which he’d written specifically for the occasion. When the office intercom interrupted him, he started over again. Watch the video below.
The self-released Coloring Book is out now.
