“Positive Affirmations for today,” he tweeted Saturday, “I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today.”

Wendy’s responded to the Chicago-based rapper’s request with a challenge.


Luckily, Twitter users came to the rescue. Wendy’s tweet surpassed the 2 million like count. As of Monday afternoon, more than 2,132,000 users had hit the love button.

While it’s unclear just when (and for how long) the nuggets will be back, Wendy’s has confirmed their inevitable return.


Thank you, Chance! Don’t miss his debut album, Owbum, coming out in July.
