Video: Chance The Rapper and Saba Perform “Angels” on ‘Colbert’

Chance The Rapper kicked off the week by performing his new song on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Shortly before hitting the stage Chano dropped “Angels” and before we could fully digest the new track, just moments later we get its television debut.

These dudes absolutely killed their performance, bringing it like if they performing this one in front of an arena and not a studio audience.

See the performance above.
