Last chance joint gotta be a dance joint
“A last-chance joint” and “the last Chance joint” are the two entendres here. This could be his last-ditch effort to turn a casual listener to a fan, but also talking about the hypothetical: what if something happens and this is the last song Chance ever puts out? similar to ‘live each day like it might be your last’, getting the most out of your life, he’s treating this like it’s the last time he’ll ever write a song (as said earlier).
So if it’s gonna be his last, it’s gotta be the best. It’s got to have everything. He’s got to write ‘one masterpiece that is the culmination of [his] entire life!’. Ergo, it’s gotta be a dance song, something you can make it rain to, introspective, drugged-out, but romantic, and old-school.
The beat switches up to a juke beat, a Chicago dance type beat.
