Late Saturday night, just as he was wrapping up his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino dropped a music video for his new single ‘This Is America’.
To say the video politically charged is an understatement: ‘This Is America’ is a confronting look at gun violence, police brutality, and the fractured social state in the US right now.

In just four minutes, and with help from frequent Atlanta director and longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, Gambino manages to highlight the 2015 Charleston mass shooting, the Black Lives Matter movement, and America’s gun epidemic.
And while all this is happening in the background, Donald Glover struts, high-steps and dances his way in front of it all — a pointed reminder that society chooses to ignore what’s really going on behind in front of our eyes.
