Supermodel Cara Delevingne Stars In Chance The Rapper And The Social Experiment’s Album Teaser
With fans eagerly awaiting the debut album from Chance The Rapper's band, The Social Experiment, the group seems to have dropped a teaser for their highly anticipated Surf: a one-minute teaser video called "Nothing Came To Me." The clip, backed only by a contemplative trumpet line (apparently courtesy of Nico Segal), depicts Cara Delevingne apprehensively making her way to a stage of some sort. Maybe period piece, maybe noir, maybe hinting at new music, the video is stylized and ambiguous in the way Chance has been since he dropped Acid Rap in 2013.
Shortly after that mixtape marked his national breakthrough, the 2014 XXL Freshman relocated from his native Chicago to Los Angeles, where he initially shacked up with singer-songwriter James Blake. The move also marks a sharp break in Chance's music. Where Acid Rap and the preceding #10Day were defined by a whip-smart, language-obsessed inversion on Lil Wayne and Kanye West's vocal tics, the 21-year-old has since gone the auteur route, preferring loose song structures and the focus shifted onto The Social Experiment.
This experimentation has so far yielded a variety of different sounds, from "Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)" to the whimsical "Sunday Candy."Chance also made waves for recruiting a litany of performers for "Wonderful Everyday," a re-imagining of the theme song from the television show Arthur. The year hasn't been all genre-bending, though, as he joined his fellow Chi-town reporters Common and Lil Herb on the remix to "Fight Or Flight," a resolute cut that put the tragedy in Ferguson, Mo. into a decidedly human context.
There has been no official word as to whether "Nothing Came To Me" implies an imminent album release, but we can be sure to expect more news shortly.
