Childish Gambino Drops New Song “This Is America” With Young Thug, 21 Savage, Chance The Rapper, Offset, and More

While hosting SNL last night, Childish released the new protest song.

 

The music video, which was directed by Atlanta creator Hiro Murai, features Gambino running around shirtless, dancing wildly, and shooting people. The song itself is lifted by the vocal-led production which, as opposed to traditional instruments or synths, features a choir as the main “beat”. “This Is America” is also filled with uncredited features, although most of the artists only have a few adlibs their presence is notable. So far, it’s been identified that Young Thug, Offset, Chance The Rapper, Blocboy JB, Big Sean, 21 Savage, Problem,Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi, and Smokepurpp, all contributed on the song. Listen for yourself and watch the music video above to see how many familiar voices you can hear. You can find “This Is America” from Childish Gambino on our Tasty! Jams playlists for May.
