Lady Blue's Cover Of Chance The Rapper's "Same Drugs" Is A Refreshing, Feel-Good Musical Experience

If you've ever wondered what would happen if you mixed Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book mixtape with a choir, we've got your answer.

That's right, Duke University's all-female group Lady Blue has just released their new cover video for Chance the Rapper's hit song "Same Drugs" and it really opens your eyes (and ears) to a world of possibility in terms of what music can be.

The song has the same emotional fervor felt in a hip-hop track with all the elegance of a choral delivery. Lady Blue opens the video with a dramatic and artistic vocal and visual flair, almost if the group is revving up to perform a stirring spiritual piece. This only lasts for a brief moment of the performance before the group unleashes a slick beat and turns up the energy that is wonderfully groovy.

The most interesting quality of the song is Lady Blue's captivating choral foundation that is felt heavily throughout. Every syllable is perfectly shaped, dynamics are masterfully incorporated (most notably in the bridge) and the overall sound is what you'd expect from a professional organization.
Each stanza is full of color and vocal depth!

This is why Lady Blue's rendition has staying power. The a cappella group brings something unique and fresh to Chance the Rapper's insanely popular song, making the listening session exhilarating, and ultimately distinguishing the cover from anything you've ever heard.
