Fresh off his dual hosting and performing gig on SNL, Childish Gambino dropped his new single, 'This is America', from his forthcoming album, which is set to be his last -- Although we've heard that song before. He also performed new song, 'Saturday', which takes on a much lighter tone than 'America'.
The accompanying video shows a dancing Gambino, who shows off his slick moves while effortlessly popping off a few rounds into some unexpecting victims. Gun violence is a hot button to press right now, but his nonchalant use of guns reminds us how numb we are to the issue. Though this is exactly his point. This is America.
Gambino kicks off his North American tour on September 6 and is said to be touring with new music. No word on when the album drops, but this could be another shot for Gambino to pick up another Grammy at next year's ceremony. 'Redbone', from the Album of the Year nominee, Awaken, My Love!, snagged the award for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
Check out the video for 'This Is America', complete with a cameo from SZA.
