Childish Gambino Debuts Thought Provoking Visual for New Single, “This Is America”

Donald Glover, musically known as Childish Gambino, had quite the weekend. After hosting Saturday Night Live (May 5) and performing a brand new song, he surprisingly debuted the official video for “This Is America.”

The thought provoking visual, which became one of the internet’s biggest trending topics within minutes of its release, opens up beautifully with Gambino alongside a guitarist and a soothing vocal arrangement that soon turns left with riots, chaos and firearms. All the while, Gambino gleefully joins a group of uniformed teens for a dance arrangement. Not to mention a closing appearance from SZA.

While we continue to unpack all of the symbolism throughout Gambino’s latest video, watch it for yourself above and listen to the track below.
