Chance The Rapper’s New Song Is Dedicated To Team USA

Part of a new Nike campaign

The official 2016 Olympic theme song may be “Alma e Coração” by Thiaguinho and Projota, but Chance the Rapper teamed up with Nike for a special dedication of his own — specifically for the USA men’s and women’s basketball team.

The ad features new rhymes from Chano and appearances by many of the major names on the teams, from Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to Diana Taurasi and Elena Delle Donne.

“Our Nike Unlimited Campaign celebrates both the everyday athletes and the champion athletes who push their limits daily and who are proving their unlimited potential, whether that’s on the world’s greatest stage this summer, or just in a pickup game in the park,” Greg Hoffman, Nike chief marketing officer, said, according to Billboard. “The USA Basketball teams are an amazing example of athletes who come together to pursue their goals for their team and their country.”

Between this collaboration with a brand and a rap dedicated to his girl for the #SoGoneChallenge (see below), there’s a healthy heap of new Chance rhymes to enjoy today.
