Congratulations are now in order to Chance the Rapper who has now been nominated for seven Grammy’s. This is the first ever nomination for a streaming-only project. Super dope! Chance is definitely making history. He has also been nominated for Best New Artist, Best Rap Song, and several nods for his work on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo. In October, Chance said if he was given a Grammy nomination, he would throw a huge party. Welp, he definitely kept his word. Chance threw a huge fiesta for the accomplishments.

During a Billboard interview, Chance spoke on how he would react to receiving an nomination. He said,

“If I get nominated, I’m going to throw a huge party in Chicago and I’ll fly in all my friends. We’ll celebrate the Grammys’ recognition of grass-roots independent artists and this new way of releasing music by nominating me. We’ll f—ing go crazy for, like, two days straight,”

Tuesday night, while at an event in Chicago, Chance made an announcement speaking on how it felt to even be nominated.

“Tonight we won, because I got nominated for a Grammy and I don’t plan on waiting until February to figure out if I won or lost. I decided tonight that because I’m surrounded by my best friends, by my family, that tonight was the winning night and I wanted to celebrate with you guys here in Chicago. If I do win any Grammy’s on that night, I promise that when I get on the stage, I’m gonna say ‘Glory be to God, I claim the victory in the name of the Lord.’”

Congrats on the accomplishments Chance!
