Chance recently gave a stunning performance of “Eternal” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and “I Got You (Always And Forever)” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Fans also couldn’t get enough of his performance this weekend at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV – playing crowd favorites and new songs from his debut album.
Chance The Rapper’s debut album, aptly titled "The Big Day," perfectly encapsulates the magnitude of his first for sale offering and the marriage to the love of his life. Fresh off of the release of his mixtape trilogy to streaming services, "The Big Day" is a landmark progression for Chicago’s hometown hero. Inspired by all of the different emotions he felt on his wedding day, the album serves as a reminder of Chance’s importance and relevance to the canon of contemporary music. With "The Big Day," Chance takes cues from the rawness of 10 Day, the lyrical prowess of Acid Rap, and the wide-eyed optimism of Coloring Book to create his most dynamic body of work to date.
Lil Yachty is a 21-year old Atlanta native and a Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, producer, creative designer, branding genius and fashion icon. Yachty has been one of the most prolific names in music during his meteoric rise. He’s earned three Top 10 albums on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and 12 songs on the Hot 100 charts. With all of these accomplishments and over 3 billion streams across his music catalog, Lil Yachty has established himself as a marvel of music and pop culture with an undeniable presence. Since releasing his viral video for “One Night” in December 2015, Lil Yachty has been releasing music at an almost unbelievable pace: Following his initial mixtapes, 2016’s Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2, that were released less than a year apart. His studio album Teenage Emotions was released in May 2017 and his second studio album Lil Boat 2, was released March 9, 2019. His third studio album, Nuthin’ 2 Prove, was released on October 19, 2018.
Taylor Bennett is the fast-rising star of hip hop. Aside from being the talented younger brother of Grammy Award winning artist Chance the Rapper, Taylor Bennett at the age of 22 is a hugely successful hip-hop artist, philanthropist, model, entrepreneur, songwriter, and producer.
Taylor’s debut album, Broad Shoulders, was released in 2015 and featured tracks with artists such as King Louie, Joey Purp, Chance the Rapper and more. The buzz around his first project also fueled a 13 minute short film that was released in 2017. His sophomore album Restoration of an American Idol released in 2017 featured A-list collaborations with Jeremih, Raury, and Lil Yachty among others. Taylor is currently out promoting his latest project "The American Reject”, the completion to his trilogy of EP’s. 2019 has been very bright for Taylor hosting him at over 15 festivals this year.
