Childish Gambino AKA Donald Glover has just released a new track 'This Is America'.
With the announce of his PHAROS tour, and no releases since his unreal album 'Awaken My Love', many have specualted the release of new music, and finally here it is.
'This Is America' carries some pretty heavy political undertones, much to the theme of a lot of big artists' music lately, such as Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, and heaps of others, given the current political climate in the United States.
The video depicts Gambino dancing through an array of chaos, and after every act of gun violence, he then looks down the camera to repeat the line "This Is America".
The song is very much old style Gambino, reminscent of his previous Camp and Because The Internet albums. Definitely something to vibe to despite the heavy content involved.
He first premiered the track on SNL:
His performance on SNL was that of a similar style to the music video.... just minus all the special effects.
Nonetheless, it's fucking dope to see another artist using their platform to ignite discussion.
The video is graphic. You have been warned.
