Chance The Rapper Sings With a Very Large Puppet in 'Same Drugs' Video
    • TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 07, 2017

    After showing the song title, "Same Drugs," the screen opens up to an old school-style shot with Chance The Rapper and a scarily large puppet sitting together at a piano. Chance is wearing his iconic baseball cap as they're drenched in the colors of the Coloring Book album cover, and the puppet starts singing to one of the female vocals. The whole thing is simple and innocent - and it kind of looks like the cover coming to life.

    The background changes to a blue as Chance stands up and it starts snowing. After embracing the fake snow for a second, Chance walks off screen and the camera follows, the quality suddenly changes to look like we're back in 2017, and we see that all of the camera operators and onset workers are also puppets. Gospel vocals (from Eryn Allen Kane, our favorite singer Yebba, John Legend, Francis Starlite and Macie Stewart) come soaring in, causing chills as he walks, making it feel like a truly triumphant moment. Is Chance the only real person in an industry filled with (metaphorical) puppets? Does Chance feel alone? Is he on a different wavelength than everyone else (well that's obviously true, in a good way). Whatever the message behind the video is, it made us feel something... And we're pretty sure Chance grows to be more and more lovable each and every day.
