Childish Gambino performs 'This is America,' new song

The Grammy victor also debuted another track called Saturday - his first new music since his 2016 album Awaken, My Love! Directed by Hiro Murai, it seems to be a commentary on the gun control debate that has been raging in America in recent months.

It's. weird, but brilliant.

For his second performance on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live", Donald "Childish Gambino" Glover premiered a new song called "This Is America". Glover spent his monologue asking cast members what they did for their audition and trying to measure up.

Its video and lyrics switch between serious and amusing, making comments on American life and current issues, including police violence, racism and gun crime.

Bill Cosby's wife speaks out calling conviction 'mob justice'
She complained to the show's top producer, Chris Licht , but asked him not to tell human resources about it. She and Bill Cosby had five children - two of whom have died - and she served as his business manager.

The juxtaposition between lighthearted and disturbing is shocking throughout the video and some viewers may find it distressing. Whereas Awaken My Love was heavily influenced by psychedelic funk and didn't feature any rap, "This Is America" feels like a return to Glover's rapping roots, but it's also more political than Glover's past output.

Childish Gambino is letting his voice be heard through artistry and aggression.

Unfortunately being on the other side of the world, we Aussies don't have access to their Youtube channel but we do have GIFS.

According to Billboard, Glover plans on retiring the Childish Gambino name after he releases his upcoming fourth album.
