Chance the Rapper has Barack Obama’s phone number.

The “Cocoa Butter Kisses� hitmaker has revealed he has close connections with the former President of the United States as well as music royalty JAY-Z, and joked they are quite similar to contact – both speaking through their assistants and private phone numbers.

“I don’t have his number, but I have a number for him. I have a person I could call that will say, ‘OK, I’ll have him call you.’ It’s the same way with JAY-Z,â€� the rapper shared speaking to James Corden in an installment of Carpool Karaoke on “The Late Late Show.â€�  “He and Barack Obama are very similar. Both of them have an assistant that you have to call, and then you get a call from a private number, and it’s either JAY-Z or Barack Obama on the phone. I never know which one is calling when I get that call back number.â€�

And the 26-year-old rapper is close to Kanye West too.

“I hosted a thing in New York once, and he was there, and he said, ‘Gimme your number, man,’ we were backstage. … We’re having a party later at a studio in New York, do you want to come?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah!’ But then, he sent me a text at 3 a.m. saying, ‘We’ll be getting there in about an hour.’ I was like, ‘What do I do? Do I get dressed and go out at 4 a.m.?’

“I’ve been in that same kind of place. Kanye’s the kind of dude where, like, you’ll meet up with him to do one thing, and then he’ll be like, ‘Oh! I gotta go to Milan right now, let’s get on this jet.’ And you gotta make a decision right there. Like, ‘Am I about to follow Kanye to Milan or go to this date that I have planned?’â€�
