Chance The Rapper, The New Face Of H&M x Kenzo, Shares Little Known Facts About Himself
Chance the Rapper continues to have the best year ever on all fronts. So far, he’s released his wildly successful Acid Rap follow-up Coloring Book, launched a subsequent world tour, honored Muhammad Ali in song at the 2016 ESPY Awards, got the music industry to acknowledge music streams for Grammy qualification, delivered memorable performances on Good Morning America and The Ellen Show, and got the ultimate photobomb from Beyonce during an interview at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
And, just days before the debut of Magnificent Coloring Day, his first real festival outside of Chicago’s Teens in the Park, he got a major fashion placement. Chano was revealed as one of the two faces for H&M’s collaboration with Kenzo (the other being supermodel Iman), sporting a green zebra printed ensemble and matching boots with his signature “3” hat.

In the short, shot by Jean-Paul Goude, Chance reveals some surprising tidbits about himself, including that he loves screenwriting, he knows more about old movies than he does old music and, despite being so well-spoken, he truthfully hasn’t read a book since high school.
Even though the collaboration doesn’t officially release until Nov. 3, you can watch the video here.
Supermodel Iman is another one of the campaign’s figureheads and the star of her own video segment.
