Chance took the stage with Toronto instrumentalist Daniel Caesar to perform a new song on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The song is so new that it doesn’t have a title and it focuses on his struggle of maintaining his family life and the life of a rap star.

During the interview, Chance talked about how he’s not interested in pursuing a run for mayor, his support for Chicago Public Schools, and how he still goes to church.

“I was gonna [perform] ‘Grown Ass Kid,’ an unreleased song from Coloring Book, and then I called on Saturday and said, I can’t do ‘Grown Ass Kid’ anymore for reasons I don’t want to talk about. We had to come up with a song in a matter of days, and I wanted to do something fresh. I’ve been in the studio a lot lately; I’ve been cooking up some yammers. I premiered ‘Angels,’ the first new song off Coloring Book, here, so I was like, why not do another new song for you guys here tonight?”

“I’m a rich excuse for a father, you just came to a toddler/She turning two, she don’t need diapers, she just need her papa/I really need a break, could really use a nap/My daughter barely recognize me when I lose the hat/You go so far, you hit a point where you can’t Uber back.”
