Adele says she "adores" Childish Gambino and praises his "greatness"

  • Donald Glover hosted 'SNL,' starred in a commercial and released 2 new songs all on the same day

For his second song, "This Is America", Gambino was introduced by actor Daniel Kaluuya of Get Out and Black Panther fame. From there, Gambino's joined by dancing school kids and a gospel choir, who sing until he mows them down with what appears to be a semi-automatic rifle.

For Glover to re-emerge from his hip-hop chrysalis as a poignant voice on issues of social significance more or less completes the circle of Childish Gambino as modern rap's best thought experiment. Look at how I'm livin' now. He dances around giddily before taking breaks for a couple of point-blank shootings.

Directed by "Atlanta" director Hiro Murai, the video is pretty surreal and packed full of messages. It's obvious what he's trying to say here - gun violence needs to stop.

A large ensemble cast features the camera weaving in and out as it follows Glover around the space. "This Is America" references numerous country's recent mass shootings from the Charleston, SC church shootings to Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School. "He is saying that is how America distracts the people", the tweet read.

Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live and gave Star Wars fans a treat when he previewed his take on Lando Calrissian from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Unfortunately for us, he's flagged that his next Gambino album will be his last.

My 2 cents: Some facts about Cinco de Mayo
In many cities in the United States, there are parades and festivities featuring mariachi music, dancing and Mexican food. While the holiday's roots are in Mexico, it's actually a minor holiday there and is celebrated much more in the U.S.

Childish Gambino's forthcoming fourth (and potentially final) album is expected to release this year.

The sketches were some of the most creative and funniest we've seen all season, exhibiting a wide range of silliness, originality, smart commentary, and great writing.

Glover, 34, said it himself during his opening monologue on "SNL". Glover also revealed that he auditioned for the show back in the day but hadn't made the cut, pointing out how things sometimes work out in the end.

"No! Kanye, leave Chrissy Teigen out of this", Cecily said during the sketch.
