Chance also spoke about meeting a Gabonese artist, Naila Opiangah, in Ghana whose painting shaped the way he presents his new song, “Child of God.”

I also actually met the artist who did the art piece that represents the song she’s a Gabonese painter by the name Naila Opiangah who I met in Ghana’ 

On how he was inspired by Naila’s painting, The 3-time Grammy-winning rapper said:  ”The original title of the song was ‘Do Your Thing Child’ but after seeing this finished 6ft x 12-foot giant beauty of work with all these bodies ascending I had the idea to change the song title I was inspired by her to change the title of the piece to Child of God which is very radical” he explained.

‘Child of God’ features Moses Sumney while the accompanying video stars Gabonese painter Naïla Opiangah, with whom Chance is staged a contemporary art project, also named Child of God, at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
