The Chicago Sun-Times reports that nearly 7 million of the Grammy Award-winner’s Instagram followers watched. Chance talks to them from the front passenger seat, with his daughter asleep in the back and his child’s mother, Kirsten Corley, driving the vehicle.
“Just want y’all to be here in case it gets out of hand. Should be good though. Should be straight,” he says, adding that he has “great faith in humanity and the men and women that put on the badge—but you know, you can’t be too careful.”
