AceShowbiz - Chance the Rapper has given Nelly his flowers. When appearing on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", the "No Brainer" rapper revealed that he wants to collab with the "Just a Dream" hitmaker, whom he described as the "incomparable" country star.
In the Monday, March 6 episode of the show, host Jimmy Fallon told Chance that he may have a feature in country music after performing a country rendition of Nelly's 2002 hit "Hot In Herre" back in 2021. In response, the Chicago emcee said, "You know what? I would do it if I could do it with who I consider to be the most important country star of our time, the incomparable Nelly."
Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Johnathan Bennett, went on to gush, "He's an amazing artist. I remember I used to listen to - I mean he made 'Hot in Herre', which, to me is naturally a country song." He then started singing [Tim McGraw] and Nelly's 2004 smash hit, "Over and Over", while explaining his sentiments further. He stated, "He's got some country classics. Nelly's a legend."
That aside, Chance opened up about the Black Star Line festival that he created with Vic Mensa in the interview. He also elaborated how 52,000 people showed up for the celebration in Accra, Ghana in January.
"It was the largest country in the history of Ghana," Chance noted. "It was way deeper than trying to do a festival. It was an opportunity for like - for Black people around the world to get together and commune safely and like, have some good music. It was a free concert."
