Last night Donald Glover served as the host on SNL and his alter ego Childish Gambino was the musical guest. The actor, television producer and Grammy Award-winning artist took the oppurtunity while hosting SNL to premier his new single and get us ready for what is to come for his new album roll out.
Shortly before SNL went live-to-air, Gambino debuted his new single titled “This Is America.” The record comes with an accompanying music video, directed by Hiro Murai. The brilliant video is a raw, graphic and eye-opening visual that takes jabs at how our social and government issues in the United States look completely ridiculous. The production is crisp and hard hitting with Gambino’s lyrics backed up by ad-libs from Young Thug, 21 Savage, A$AP Rocky and BlocBoy Jb. TDE’s SZA also makes a cameo in the visual. The record is expected to appear on Childish Gambino’s fourth and final studio album. Purchase the song here and watch below.
