Chance the Rapper is having (another) big year. Grammy wins, festival headlining slots, continued good deeds in his (and our) native Chicago, and now: Chance the Rocker. Billboard reports that Chance has appeared on the rock charts for the first time in his storied career, as his collab with pals Francis and the Lights, “May I Have This Dance?” has debuted at No. 48 on the Rock Airplay chart. Chance and Francis are homies from way back, and Francis previously jumped on “Summer Friends” from Chance’s Coloring Book.

The tune originally appeared Francis’ 2016 debut Farewell Starlite!, and earlier this year Chance blessed the remix with a verse. Adding Chance has enhanced the song’s profile (of course), and it has been picking up steam on the radio ever since. This is also Francis and the Lights’ first appearance on the rock charts.

Check out the video — which also prominently features Chance — for the remix below.
