During Chance’s Lollapalooza set in 2014, he brought out Kelly as a surprise guest. In 2015, Chance made a cameo in Kelly’s “Backyard Party” video as well featuring Kelly on his track “Somewhere in Paradise.”

While in hindsight he regrets working with Kelly, Chance’s full interview drew criticism after an excerpt from it suggested he didn't “care” to believe the numerous women who have accused Kelly of sexual abuse "because they were Black women."

The rapper quickly clarified his intentions on Twitter.

Chance wrote: "...the truth is any of us who ever ignored the R Kelly stories, or believed he was being set up/attacked by the system (as lack men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls. I apologise to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out." He also added, “Regardless of the proximity of beneficial BW in your life, or being black yourself, we are all capable of subconsciously discrediting BW and their stories because its indoctrinated.”

Research has shown that Black girls are perceived by adults as much less innocent than white girls and are sexualised from an early age. So, given the truth in Chance’s initial comments, some social media users commended the 25-year-old for being honest and apologetic about his own biases. Others weren’t satisfied with his explanation.
