“Are U Live” was featured on Jeremih and Chance’s SoundCloud mixtape Jeremih & Chance’s Merry Christmas Lil Mama: Rewrapped that the Chicago natives released on Dec. 15, 2017. Now after Chance and Co. have “been trying to clear this record for THREE years,” as he noted on Twitter, the song has arrived on streaming services for the very first time with an accompanying Lyrical Lemonade visual.
The three rappers get the party started, commit a couple of party fouls from broken glass to unsuccessful daps, and dance the night away in the Cole Bennett-directed clip, which reminds viewers how the song helped popularize the “Woah” dance craze.
Last month, Chance requested prayers for Jeremih on social media after the R&B hitmaker was hospitalized in a Chicago ICU, where he was using a ventilator to assist with his breathing, while battling a severe case of COVID-19. The “oui” singer was later transferred out of the ICU and into a regular hospital room. His family told CNN in a statement that the virus “viciously attacked his body” and added they felt “very grateful for everyone who is praying.”
The Coloring Book rapper expressed gratitude on Twitter yesterday (Dec. 3) for being able to speak with Jeremih on the phone and for his reported release from the hospital today. “I AM FILLED WITH PRAISE RIGHT NOW I JUST HEARD MY BROTHER JEREMIH’S VOICE ON THE PHONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST A MONTH HE WILL BE OUT THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW WE GIVE ALL GLORY TO THE FATHER IN JESUS NAME,” Chance wrote, later thanking the staff at Northwestern and those who prayed on Jeremih’s behalf “when it seemed so grim” in a separate note.
