Critical reception[edit]

Rolling Stone named "No Problem" one of the 30 best songs of the first half of 2016, stating: "This streaming-only star sounds like he's giving an ultimatum to the record industry: 'If one more label try to stop me / It's gon' be some dreadhead niggas in your lobby.' But the gospel choir in the background makes it feel more like an ecstatic celebration of his blessings."[3]

"No Problem" was included on several best-of-2016 song rankings. Billboard ranked it at number 13 on their "100 Best Pop Songs of 2016" list,[4] while Pitchfork listed it at number 12 on their 100 best songs of 2016.[5] Later, they ranked it at number 162 on their "200 Best Songs of the 2010s" list.[6] Village Voice, in their annual Pazz & Jop mass critics poll of the year's best in music in 2016, ranked "No Problem" at number 11.[7]

Music video[edit]

The song's accompanying music video premiered on May 26, 2016 on Chance's YouTube channel.[8] Directed by Austin Vesely and Chance the Rapper,[9] the video features celebrity appearances from DJ Khaled and Young Thug, among others.
