Chance the Rapper is one of the most influential artists of the 2010s. From his legendary rise to fame through social media and SoundCloud to his historic GRAMMY wins in 2017, Chance the Rapper has paved the way for independent artists.
Years before his debut studio album The Big Day, Chance the Rapper was already an international superstar thanks to his highly acclaimed mixtapes (10 Day, Acid Rap, and Coloring Book). Additionally, Chance the Rapper has served as the frontman for The Social Experiment and has released multiple collab mixtapes with Jeremih as well as Lil B.
Sorting through Chance the Rapper’s massive catalog has proved that Lil Chano has a song for EVERY SINGLE MOOD. From songs that you can duet to songs for when you’re nostalgic to songs for those summer nights, Chance the Rapper has got it all.
So if you’re wondering which Chance the Rapper track you should listen to based on your current mood, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Check out our list below of 10 Chance the Rapper songs for every mood.
Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re in a great mood: “All Night”
Key Lyrics: “Is you is or is you ain’t got gas money? / No IOU’s or debit cards, I need cash money”
The 10th track off Coloring Book is incredibly groovy—the perfect song to play when you’re in a great mood. KAYTRANADA’s production on “All Night” is a wonderful modern-day rendition of mid-to-late-’80s Chicago house style music. An additional horn arrangement from Nico Segal comes in right after two magnificent Chance the Rapper verses to end the song on the highest of high notes.
On the track, Chance raps about how people are coming out of the woodworks now due to his newfound fame. In a brilliant example of his pen game, the rapper tells stories of countless people asking him for a ride home as a metaphor for the strangers who are attempting to ride his success wave.
We couldn’t agree more with this fan.
all night by chance the rapper is such a feel good song like been on repeat for a HOT minute

Chance the Rapper songs for when you just wanna chill: “Cocoa Butter Kisses”
Key Lyrics: “Wiley up off peyote, wilin’ like that coyote / If I sip any Henny, my belly just might be outie”
Off his legendary mixtape Acid Rap, “Cocoa Butter Kisses” sees Chance the Rapper in top form. His clever wordplay may go over some listeners’ heads as they completely vibe out to this chill track.
Chance enlists the help of Chicago rappers Vic Mensa and Twista to round out the two “Cocoa Butter Kisses” guest verses. The track proved to be a breakout hit for both Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa, both of whom were—at the time—relatively unknown artists from Chicago’s SAVEMONEY hip-hop collective.
“Cocoa Butter Kisses” will forever be a classic.
cocoa butter kisses by chance the rapper still is and always will be top tier for me. 🔝🗣

Chance the Rapper songs for when you find the one: “Found a Good One (Single No More)”
Key Lyrics: “Turns out she the marryin’ kind / Very smart and she very fine”
“Found a Good One (Single No More)” is a standout track from Chance the Rapper’s latest release, The Big Day. While the entire album centers around the theme of Lil Chano’s wedding, “Found a Good One (Single No More)” sweetly encapsulates the moment that the rapper knew he had found the one.
To help build the track’s concept, the production is very happy and upbeat while the song’s lyrics see Chance gushing over his wife, Kristen Corley. Additionally, Chance the Rapper brought in the legendary R&B trio SWV for the chorus and Pretty Vee for a sweet outro.
It doesn’t matter if you’re cuffed up or single as a Pringle—“Found a Good One (Single No More” hits every time.
— L i l y (@Lilynicole28) July 30, 2019
However, it is definitely going on the wedding playlist.

Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re feeling nostalgic: “Nostalgia”
Key Lyrics: “I used to chill with the kids next door / And SpongeBob came around ’bout four / And then I’d hang with Bart’s guys / Around the bend was Smart Guy”
Every bar of “Nostalgia” could be featured above as a key lyric. Chance the Rapper spends the entire three-and-a-half-minute track reminiscing on the simpler times of childhood. “Nostalgia” is the perfect Chance the Rapper song to put on when you’re getting nostalgic for the late ‘90s/early ‘00s.
The song was originally released back in 2010 before Chance pursued a solo career. “Nostalgia” debuted on Instrumentality’s Back to School Pack EP before being re-released on Chance the Rapper’s debut solo mixtape, 10 Day.
Chance the Rapper is unquestionably the king of ‘90s references.
@chancetherapper 90’s nostalgia references are unmatched 🔥

Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re feeling romantic: “Interlude (That’s Love)”
Key Lyrics: “What’s better than rhymes, nickels, dimes and dollars and dubs / Is dialing up your darling just for callin’ her up / It ain’t nothing better than fallin’ in love”
In the interlude of Acid Rap, Chance the Rapper speaks about how love is the most powerful aspect of life. “Interlude (That’s Love)” is a short but sweet track that is boosted by GRAMMY- and Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson’s production.
Throw on “Interlude (That’s Love)” whenever you’re feeling romantic and vibe out to one of the most uplifting and inspiring songs in Chance the Rapper’s entire discography.
Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re on your workout grind: “No Problem”
Key Lyrics: “You don’t want no problem, want no problem with me”
“No Problem” is one of Chance the Rapper’s most popular songs—and for good reason. The rapper is joined by hip-hop greats Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz on a track that is incredibly hype. “No Problem” predominantly features lyrics about Chance’s independence from major labels, and Lil Chano warns the record companies against trying to start a fight.
All three rappers have immaculate flows on the track, and their high energy will have anyone singing along as they hit the gym. “No Problem” is the perfect song to work out to, and you’re guaranteed to hit a PR if you throw this track on. (Okay, maybe not, but it’ll definitely help).
“No Problem” was certified the song of summer 2016.
This song alone carried the entire 2016 summer:

Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re in your feels: “Warm Enough”
Key Lyrics: You don’t know me and love got a secret handshake and mad inside jokes / I could tell it’s knock knock when my heart beatbox use your inside vox
Chance the Rapper teamed up with fellow Chicago rapper Noname and North Carolina’s J. Cole for “Warm Enough,” and they didn’t disappoint. The track appeared on Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment‘s 2015 album Surf, in which Chance the Rapper was the frontman.
“Warm Enough” sees the three rappers appear in their rawest and most emotional forms as they cling onto the final strings of their relationships. With the subtle, dreamlike production that backs the track, the three artist’s verses come off as pure poetry.
We need these three to hop on a track again!
— HotNewHipHop (@HotNewHipHop) May 28, 2021
We’re gonna have to agree with this one.
Can we talk about SURF? Absolutely one of my favorite albums. pic.twitter.com/WpUpUYtJST

They wouldn’t know what hit them. 😭😭😭
Tmw is my first concert of the year and performing is my favorite thing in the world. I am very very happy. Any suggestions for an obscure/old song I should play?
— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) March 5, 2020
I know we’re three years late to seeing this tweet but YES RE-RELEASE “Warm Enough”!
I wonder why some songs don’t do the rounds as much as they should. @JColeNC ,@chancetherapper & @noname put together lyrical gold in “Warm Enough” and i didn’t see no buzz about it. Time for a re-release?
— Akhil Hemdev (@Akhilhemdev) June 6, 2018
I can’t think of a better song for this setting.

It should be part of our daily routine to listen to “Warm Enough.”

Chance the Rapper songs for when you wanna duet: “Sunday Candy”
Key Lyrics: “You’re my dreamcatcher, dream team, team captain / Matter fact, I ain’t seen you in a minute / Let me take my butt to church”
Chance the Rapper and Jamila Woods go together like peanut butter and jelly. “Sunday Candy” marks the first collaboration between the two artists, and it is one for the history books. Whether you’re riding in the car, singing karaoke, or performing in front of a sold-out crowd, “Sunday Candy” is the perfect song for a duet.
Additionally, the track is dedicated to Chance the Rapper’s number one fan and supporter: his grandma. The incredibly vibrant “Sunday Candy” is another track on Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment’s underrated album, Surf.

Chance the Rapper songs for when you’re in the Christmas spirit: “Joy”
Key Lyrics: “We should make snow angel doves / Outside, lookin’ Christmas and you just who I’m thinkin’ of”
Chance the Rapper LOVES Christmas. The Chicago native teamed up with Jeremih to release two mixtapes completely dedicated to the holiday season back in 2016 and 2017. If you’re tired of hearing the same Christmas classics every winter, add “Joy” (from their first Christmas-themed mixtape, Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama) to your playlist.
“Joy” reminds listeners about the most essential elements of the holiday season, and it will be a Christmas staple for years to come. Jeremih’s vocals are incredibly beautiful throughout the track, and you are in for a treat when the choir joins him for the final chorus.
Chance the Rapper and Jeremih followed up Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama with another Christmas mixtape titled Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama Re-Wrapped, featuring 10 new songs. In 2020, the mixtapes hit all streaming platforms under the name Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift that Keeps on Giving.
“Joy” is an underrated Christmas classic.🎄

Chance the Rapper songs for those summer nights: “Juice”
Key Lyrics: “Chano, Chatham’s own / Foolies glad I’m home / Even my haters kinda glad I’m on”
The second you hit play on “Juice,” Chance the Rapper and producer Nate Fox transport you to summer. The production is incredibly laid back, allowing for Chance the Rapper’s signature alliteration to be on full display.
As the first single from Acid Rap, much of the mixtape’s commercial and critical acclaim can be traced back to “Juice.” Additionally, “Juice” was one of Chance the Rapper’s most-performed songs when he toured with Childish Gambino back in 2013. If you’re looking for a Chance the Rapper song to rap along to during those summer nights, look no further than “Juice.”
“Juice” is so good that fans have been begging for it to be released on all streaming platforms for years.
@chancetherapper Please release Juice on apple music. Please. 🙂
— HECULES 🌩 (@JustHecules) June 1, 2021
