This is become a pattern for Chance, in 2014 he worked on the remake of the theme song of the animated series classic, Arthur —and even preformed his version on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside the theme song’s original writer and performer, Ziggy Marley and Jon Batiste. Earlier this month on Instagram, Chance teased a new theme song for the upcoming return of the Nickelodeon sketch show, All That.
Original All That cast members will be making appearances on the show including, Kel Mitchell, Josh Server, and Lori Beth. Kenan Thompson will add executive produce to his already busy schedule.
The Steven Universe: The Movie will premiere in the Fall and will feature original music by a number of artists including, Estelle, Gallant, and of course, Chance the Rapper.
Chance will share executive producer credits with Kat Morris, Joe Johnston, Alonso Ramirez Ramos, Ian Jones-Quartey, and series creator, Rebecca Sugar.
