Childish Gambino Drops This Is America and Is It Ever

In America, a lot of people get shot. Like, all the time. And in Childish Gambino’s new video for This Is America things are no different. The video starts off with a seemingly carefree Childish Gambino, the musical alter ego of Atlanta creator Donald Glover, dancing in an empty warehouse. Right up until he executes a man. The rest of the video is peppered with similar incidents of extreme fun and extreme violence, culminating in Gambino fleeing a pursuing crowd. This is Childish Gambino’s first new release since his 2016 Grammy-award-winning album Awaken, My Love! Glover has also said that his as-yet-unnamed upcoming album will be his last under the moniker. So, you could say he’s going out with a bang.
