Chance The Rapper will join more elite company this winter. Starbucks has just announced Chano will be featured on their holiday gift card.

The Chicago lyricist will join Lady Gaga and Metallica as selected recording artists that will lend their likeness to the uber-popular spending cards. As with every one of his recent moves this partnership is deeper than caramel lattes.

Chano has partnered with both Spotify and Starbucks so a part of the proceeds go to his Social Works non-profit organization. Additionally, the coffee giant will also donate a combined $1 million dollars to the foundations of all three musicians.

Starting Nov. 28, Starbucks and Spotify will debut three limited-edition Starbucks Cards featuring Chance the Rapper, Lady Gaga, and Metallica. In the spirit of Starbucks ‘Give Good’ holiday campaign, which encourages goodness of all kinds throughout the holiday season, Starbucks and Spotify are donating a total of $1 million divided among these iconic artists’ three charities that benefit youth empowerment, education and veterans.

The collectible cards will be available at participating company-operated U.S. Starbucks stores with a minimum load of $25, while supplies last. Customers who buy or receive the card as a gift are also eligible for a Spotify Premium trial offer.*

Chance looks at the campaign as another opportunity to give back to the community. “Our goal at SocialWorks is to empower the youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement. Many thanks to Starbucks and Spotify for working with us to create more opportunities to build dreams, inspire creativity, and let the youth be themselves!”

Hit up your local Starbucks to support.
