The day we've all been waiting for is here
; Chance The Rapper's new album Coloring Book (previously known as Chance 3) has finally arrived.

Expectations for the album have run incredibly high, and Chance's high profile appearances—including last year's Pitchfork Music Festival, a tour of the late-night talk show circuit, and his stint as the only unsigned musician to appear on Saturday Night Live as a music guest—have only stoked everyone's anticipation.

Upon an initial listen, the album lives up to the hype. It's a star-studded affair, featuring collaborations with Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Jeremih, Lil Wayne, Future and Kirk Franklin, among others.

We'll have a more in-depth review after we've had time to fully absorb Coloring Book's charms, but until then, you can stream or download the album here:
