Childish Gambino Releases Graphically Violent New Video "This Is America"

07 May 2018, 12:24 | Clyde Nash

This new song, aptly titled "Saturday", is vastly different than "This Is America" and stays with the funk and soul roots that were present on Gambino's 2016 album "Awaken, My Love!".

The video, directed by Glover's constant collaborator Hiro Murai, sparked a range of reactions -including a lot of emotional tweets from folks breaking down what "This Is America" means to them.

It's. weird, but brilliant.

From there, Gambino's joined by dancing school kids and a gospel choir, who sing until Gambino mows them down with what appears to be a semi-automatic rifle. Last night he proved to Lorne, the Saturday Night Live cast and fans everywhere that he would have been a great addition to the cast, delivering one of the best episodes of Season 43.

Following the release, Glover performed the song on SNL in the same performance-style as the music video... minus the assault rifle. He also picked up Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy and Outstanding Director for the episode "B.A.N".

Come May 24, Glover will also be in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a young Lando Calrissian.

The actor also voiced Simba for Disney's upcoming The Lion King remake.

"I know, Kanye was just on TMZ, and he said slavery was a choice", Glover's character said, once again breaking the silence and endangering the group. "I'm really appreciative of this".

The video ends with Glover seemingly running for his life.

Glover can be now be seen on FX's Atlanta, which airs Thursdays at 10 p.m.
