Chance announced the video on Twitter on Thursday (Oct. 20), writing, "Can I get a witness". Francis & The Lights supplies the electronic accompaniment, an all-female choir swoops in with hair-raising harmonies, and Chance and Jay Electronica contribute their own spirited sermons.

Chance hinted that he had reservations about releasing the video.
