Chance The Rapper has teamed up with Nike and written an uplifting song for the US Olympics basketball team titled 'Unlimited Together'
Chance the Rapper has penned a track for the USA Olympics basketball team.
The 23-year-old hip hop star has teamed with Nike, who have designed the side's kit, on the song as part of their Nike Unlimited Campaign to celebrate their journey in the Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Titled 'Unlimited Together', it's produced by D. Phelps, Jack Red, and Smoko Ono and kicks off with a piano melody and the Chicago artist speaking the lines "we want some heroes in our story, we need highlights for a night light we need glory for a while, we want results we want results".
The inspirational track continues: "People, people, we the people would like you to know that wherever you're going we're right by your side."
Greg Hoffman, Nike Chief Marketing Officer said: "Our Nike Unlimited Campaign celebrates both the everyday athletes and the champion athletes who push their limits daily and who are proving their unlimited potential, whether that's on the world's greatest stage this summer, or just in a pickup game in the park.
"The USA Basketball teams are an amazing example of athletes who come together to pursue their goals for their team and their country."
The US won the men's Olympic Gold in London in 2012 after scooping the crown at the 2008 games in Beijing.
The video has been directed by Hiro Murai and features the players - including stars of the team Brittney Griner, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony and Maya Moore - and the 'Cocoa Butter Kisses' hitmaker.
Chance, 23, released his third studio album 'Coloring Book' this year.
