If you’re like us, you’re still tingling from Childish Gambino( also known as Donald Glover) ‘s jaw-dropping This Is America music video.
In case you somehow missed the revolutionary visual, the 34 -year-old quadruple threat made a strong posture against gun brutality, as he spotlit how automatic artilleries are gave more delicately than human life in the U.S. Of track, the video didn’t stop there, as the Hiro Murai-directed project likewise stroked on other social question, like police barbarism and race.
Unsurprisingly, the vid garnered quite a bit of -Alist praise following its sometime nighttime release on Saturday. Everyone from Taraji P. Henson to Adele to Bruno Mars have drawn sure to give Gambino/ Glover a shout-out on social media.

Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been consecrated beyond words in “peoples lives” as yet. Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 times with me. My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie. Last night was the best light of “peoples lives”. Here’s a duo pics. I’m perfectly fucked , not sure I’ll make it out the members of this house again! Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much better greatness on so many scaffolds. I admire you xA post shared by Adele (@ adele) on May 6, 2018 at 4:41 pm PDT

Childish Gambino’s video descended out the heavens like Nicolas Cage in City of Angels. So grateful for this potent and thought-provoking video after such a yikes ass week in hip hop.
