Following a week that started with a pneumonia scare, Chance the Rapper has given his fans new music to dive into this Friday. The rapper released “Coloring Book”, which is his latest and highly anticipated mixtape, and it can now be streamed or downloaded.
“Coloring Book” dropped exclusively for streaming on Apple Music Friday morning.

The rapper gets some help from Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, Future, T- Pain and many more. Below you can see the “Coloring Book” track list and cover art:

“Coloring Book” is the rapper’s third mixtape, which follows 2013’s “Acid Rap” and 2012’s “10 Day.” He began teasing new music from the mixtape in October 2015 when he premiered “Angles” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” He also performed on “Saturday Night Live” in December where he dropped “Somewhere in Paradise.”
After making “Coloring Book” an Apple Music exclusive, Chance the Rapper has joined other major artists in hip hop to have exclusive releases this year. Kanye West released his new album “The Life of Pablo” exclusively on Tidal in February before making it available everywhere in March. Beyoncé has made her recent release “Lemonade” a Tidal exclusive for streaming, but it can also be purchased on iTunes. Drake also made “Views” an Apple Music exclusive for two weeks, before it joined other streaming services on Friday. Will Chance follow in Drake’s footsteps or will the mixtape remain solely on Apple Music?
