    Chance kept his cards close to his chest.

    Although the newly popular surprise release tactic is combatting album leaks, it still happens. Or even if there isn't a leak, there's a slow trickle of information, a producer credit, some feature guests there, a tweet revealing a title.

    With Coloring Book there was none of that. We didn't know who was on the record, or even what it was called until Chance tweeted out a link last night. He kept information very close to his chest, and even Saba, who is featured on "Angels," only found out very recently that the song was being used.

    "I didn’t know 'Angels' would be on the project," he told us "I found out maybe a few days before the rest of the world found out. Noname told me, which is how I find out anything actually."
