Following the release of acclaimed Coloring Book mixtape in May, Chance the Rapper announced the Magnificent Coloring World Tour.
The North American portion starts August 7th through October 21st. It includes stops in most major cities and a recently announced appearance at Philadelphia’s Made In America festival. At the moment, a show in Chance’s hometown of Chicago is listed as “TBD.” On Twitter, the rapper suggested that the European dates will also be announced this week.
Coloring Book debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart without selling a single copy. The album, which included contributions from Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Justin Bieber, Kirk Franklin, the Chicago Children’s Choir, and more, was streamed 57.3 million times the week it came out as an Apple Music exclusive.
In the past, streaming-only releases were not eligible for Grammy awards – to be recognized by the Recording Academy, music had to come in physical or downloadable form. But in a change that recognizes the importance of streaming platforms in the modern music landscape, the academy recently ruled that streaming-only releases can be nominated for Grammys as long as they are made available on a service that has a paid-subscription tier and audio quality comparable to that of a CD. Chance’s latest tape is likely to benefit from this rule change, which takes effect at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on February 12th, 2017.
