Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video Tackles Gun Violence and Black Life

Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video Tackles Gun Violence and Black Life

Glover does another musical parody, this time offering an 1980's-inspired stalker song targeted at the entirely wrong person.

Ironically, Glover may have accidentally proven that he's good at SNL monologues in the process as keeping the monologue under five minutes and having it move throughout the studio is always a titanic achievement.

The whole thing ends with Glover running in slow motion through a dark passage, highlighting that the dark forces at play throughout the video may have finally taken hold of him.

Last night, Saturday Night Live spoofed the hit film A Quiet Place and rapper Kanye West's sensational week in the media. He also won the Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy.

Fans were delighted when Glover wasn't just limited to "Saturday Night Live".

Performing the sunny track, he croons, "Saturday, all I wanna do is make you dance, girl, and fall in love".

(During the show he shared a bleak new Hiro Murai-directed music video for the latter.) Since Glover couldn't very well introduce himself, Zoë Kravitz and Daniel Kaluuya from Get Out did the honors.

The video has garnered more than 13million views on YouTube since its release barely 24hours ago, making it one of the biggest first day views this year. Later, he guns down a gospel choir in a scene eerily reminiscent of the 2015 terrorist attack at a Charleston church that killed nine people attending a bible study.

If you listen closely to Childish Gambino's newly released single "This Is America", you'll realize it wasn't exactly a solo effort. "Look how I'm livin' now / Police be trippin' now / Yeah, this is America / Guns in my area (word, my area) / I got the strap / I gotta carry "em".
