Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” is Officially #1 [WATCH]

on

As expected, Childish Gambino’s new single “This Is America” has dethroned Drake’s 15-week-long “Nice For What/God’s Plan” run as the Billboard 100’s number one song. The track — which features subtle vocal additions from Young Thug, Blocboy JB, 21 Savage and more — takes aim at gun-happy America in the midst of social injustice, police brutality and racism…the accompanying video takes that up a notch with controversial images of violence and unjust (complete with Gambino and kids dancing as a clever distraction). Quite frankly, it’s an amazing piece of work from the guy also going as Donald Glover, who’s also making strides in television (Atlanta) and film (Star Wars’ Solo hits cinemas this week).

If you’ve missed it, feel free to join in on the discussion above. In related news, YouTube star Nicole Arbour recently caught flack for making a woman’s version, which — since she’s White — also opened the doors to heavy criticism from Black social media. Feel free to look at that below.
