Childish Gambino Drops 'This Is America' Video

May 6, 2018

Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, has released his first music since the Grammy Award-winning 2016 album "Awaken, My Love!" 

Glover was the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” on May 5, where he performed a new song called “Saturday.” 

He also debuted the new track "This Is America." The music video, directed by Hiro Murai, arrived on YouTube. Shot in a huge, empty warehouse, it opens with a shirtless Donald Glover dancing until he stops and shoots a man.

The video is full of moments of violence and glee, like a gospel choir singing "Get your money black man" before Glover opens fire, and people dancing amid police cars and flames.

See if you can spot the brief SZA cameo at 3:21.
