In July 2018, Chicago artist Chance the Rapper announced that West was coming to Chicago to produce for his seven-track debut studio album. [a] West was seen in the city at the end of August 2018, and confirmed to Fox News that the two of them were recording music together. West later stated that his recording sessions with Chance the Rapper had helped him reconnect with his roots and faith in Jesus. That same month, West released the non-album single “XTCY”, which was cut from Ye, while he released “I Love It” in September 2018, a collaborative single with American rapper Lil Pump. [b] In September 2018, West reactivated his Instagram account after a half-year absence, with indications that he was working with producer Ronny J, and Chance the Rapper, alongside the latter’s brother Taylor Bennett, and G Herbo. Through his Instagram, West confirmed that he was collaborating with American rapper 6ix9ine and began posting snippets of new music. Ant Clemons, who had previously worked with West on Ye and K. T. S. E. , was invited to Chicago where he recorded his vocals for “Everything We Need” and an earlier version of the track “Selah”. West also announced that he was permanently moving back to Chicago, which his wife Kim Kardashian was not aware of until she heard about West’s announcement through social media, and that he was actively working on a collaborative album with Chance the Rapper titled Good Ass Job. West didn’t move back to Chicago and Good Ass Job never materialized.
