Saturday Night Live host Chance the Rapper gifted America the ultimate Thanksgiving 90s-style slow jam dedicated to former President Barack Obama.
“Come Back, Barack” was performed by a fictional ’90s R&B-style boy band De-Von-Tré, which included SNL stars Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd.
“We didn’t know just what we had,” the chorus went. “Now things are looking bad. Like really bad, like World War bad, like nuclear bad.” As Chance added, “When I think of change, the only change I want is you!”
“It’s been a long time Barack, almost as long as since a guy talked over a record like this,” Thompson intoned. “For real, why would you leave us? Oh, ‘cause you had to because of the Constitution? But you can come back, right? Oh, you can’t? Because that would undermine the very institutions that we’re barely holding on to as it is? I see. I guess we’re stuck with this dude for a while then. Maybe you can come back and make a speech? How much would that cost? For real? Oh, no, we definitely can’t afford that.”
