Chance continues on the overt religious themes present throughout Coloring Book on “How Great.” During his AMA on Reddit, Chance said that “How Great” is his favorite song on Coloring Book, saying:
How Great, The setup, the children’s choir, JAY!!!!!! My grandmother passed away a few weeks before we recorded and my cousin nicole sang How Great Is Our God and it crushed me, a week later i had her come in the studio. recorded her and francis did his harmonizer thing. Its so close to my heart.
The track has strong Biblical themes, as Chance focuses on Christian theological references such as Jesus Christ and “faith the size of a mustard seed”.
The song’s intro features Chance’s cousin Nicole, who interpolates Chris Tomlin’s “How Great is Our God.”
