Brian Fresco has some pretty awesome friends. He's releasing Casanova next week on the Chicago label Save Money, and his first single is a lovely mix of Balearic vibes and hip-hop acumen. And he recruits some heavy hitters to help make that combination a reality.

Chicago mainstays Chance The Rapper (the hardest working man in hip-hop right now?) pitches in to add a wallop of swagger to Fresco's first single, "Higher." The album will also feature Chicago's BJ The Chicago Kid. (The next Marvin Gaye?)

Fresco plays The Portage Theater (4050 N. Milwaukee Ave.) on July 7. Who knows which famous friends might show up to that show?
