Chance The Rapper is truly on top of the rap world. Building on his powerful “Same Drugs,” Chance recruited Eryn Allen Kane to sing opposite him in the music video, improving an already beautiful song. The video was premiered on Facebook live, yet another example of Chance using his independent status to his advantage.
Does anyone have facebook live? I'm about to premier a new music video on there in 10 minutes ok? Ok. https://t.co/TRRxLBhZBc

According to Genius, “Same Drugs” is about the relationship between Chance and a girl from his childhood. Realizing that they no longer share the same interests and experiences that they did as children, Chance reflects nostalgically on their shared youth and explores his own feelings of loss in regards to growing up.
In his Reddit AMA, Chance said that “Same Drugs” had “like 20 versions and was the hardest to write.”
