Chance The Rapper covers Coldplay’s “Fix You”

Chance the Rapper cosores feature

Back in August, Chance The Rapper offered up an intriguing take on Kanye West‘s “All Falls Down”, mixing things up with weird pronunciation and a manic sense of pacing. During last night’s show in Syracuse, NY, the young MC took a real chance by covering Coldplay’s 2005 single “Fix You”. Though his excellent Acid Rap mixtape features some singing, there’s nothing quite like this performance: lots of attempts at achy falsetto notes and some oddly guttural moans, like Chance attended the Yoko Ono School of Singing. Some of it’s pretty (see 1:13 and 1:45), and some of it not so much (see 0:43), but it’s just refreshing to see another rapper exploring his voice (and displaying an affinity for Coldplay). Watch the replay below.
