Chance the Rapper lends two verses to a new commercial for 1800 Tequila.
The rapper teamed up with Octave Minds to contribute music for the brand’s latest ad, titled “Hands.” The commercial follows a man who spends his days practicing in a boxing ring and his nights playing piano at a fine jazz establishment.
Chance’s meter mirrors that split. “One foot in the door, one foot in the grave/ One stepped on the floor, two stepped out the way/ Two glares up at one, what y’all wanna say?/ One stares back at two, two is unafraid,” he raps, reflecting the jazz piano’s staccato rhythm before he explodes into a cadence that mirrors the punches the man throws.
