Childish Gambino Just Shared Powerful New Song ‘This Is America’

In the middle of his appearance as host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,”  over the weekend, Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) dropped a video for a new song that veers between comedy, commentary and surrealism called ‘This Is America.’

Directed by Hiro Murai, the political visual shows Glover manically dancing in a large warehouse while chaotic scenes unfold behind and because of him. In the video’s closing moments, SZA makes an appearance, sitting on a car and looking briefly at the camera.

‘This Is America’ marks the first new music Gambino has dropped since the release of his Grammy-nominated album “Awaken, My Love!” late in 2016, and has said that this upcoming album will be his last under the moniker.
