Chance the Rapper wanted to make this year's Fourth of July a truly memorable one, and he did that by asking his longtime girlfriend Kirsten Corley to marry him.

A new Instagram video posted by The Shade Room captures the special moment when Chance — real name Chancellor Jonathan Bennett — dropped to bended knee, took Corley's hand and proceeded to propose.

The artist posed the engagement question in a different way, saying to Corley, "Will you make me a man and be my wife?"

The video cuts out before Corley could respond, but Chance did not leave his fans in suspense.

Over on Twitter, he shared the good news with his followers using the simple words "She said yes."

The now engaged couple started dating back in 2013, according to People.com, but the relationship was not without its challenges. The two reportedly separated in May 2016.

As a result of the separation, Corley sought "sole caretaker" status of their daughter, Kensli, from the court and also requested child support from Chance.

The separation proved temporary as Corley withdrew her court filings a few months later and the pair began seeing each other again.

Chance and Corley have not talked much about their relationship in public, though the rapper has expressed gratitude to his now fiancée on a few occasions.

While accepting the Grammy Award for Best New Artist back in 2017, Chance thanked her for her presence in his life.
