Director, actor, producer and musician Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, has given his chart-topping new music video a distinctly South African twist, performing the local dance, "Gwara Gwara".
The Grammy Award nominee delivered a master class in simplicity as the video shot in a warehouse covers a lot of layers and behind the scene themes delivering great art at a much needed time. And if that's not enough, he released a poignant music video for his new song "This Is America". The visual served the palpable reality of being black in America, with gun violence and police brutality as the focal point.
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
Donald Glover unexpectedly released the first video from his upcoming - and by all accounts, final - album as Childish Gambino, the politically charged 'This Is America'. This definitely won't be the last we hear from him. The accompanying music video for the more serious "This Is America" dropped online shortly before the episode aired.
According to The Rolling Stone, "This Is America" features vocals from " Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Migos' Quavo as well as Rae Sremmurd's Slxm Jimmy and BlocBoy JB".
"This is America" is the most powerful and pointed reality check in the form of a music video, since Kendrick Lamar - standing upon a graffiti-covered police vehicle with a threadbare American flag waving in the background - so beautifully articulated in his seminal 2015 album, To Pimp a Butterfly, the preeminent protest song of our generation - "Alright". Gambino ties all of these ideas together with school children dancing, recording activity on their cellphones, a Black choir and police chaos.
