En Vogue opened up the performance before Chance The Rapper ran out on the stage wearing a lifeguard shirt alongside dancers who wore bright neon-colored ’80s era gear.

Gospel singer Kierra Sheard then joined Chance and En Vogue on stage wearing colors that complimented the dresses that En Vogue wore.

Palm trees, beach tables, beach balls, and surfboards adorned the stage with a huge beautiful ocean sunset on a screen that was behind the artists, giving off summertime and vacation vibes.

During the visit, Chance also discussed his paternity leave, fatherhood, and more with Kimmel.

Chance talks about mentioning Jimmy in a song, having a new baby, choosing to take paternity leave, Kanye West being his spiritual advisor, collaborating with great artists on his new album, performing stand-up comedy at The Laugh Factory, and he reveals how his wedding inspired him musically.

“People make the diaper part much more tough,” Chance said. The “No Problems” rapper said that he’d much rather change diapers than get up in the middle of the night.
