Childish Gambino Debuts New Song "Saturday" on 'SNL'

  • Is Saturday Night Live on tonight, May 5th, 2018?

Titled This is America the video, directed by Hiro Murai, shows Donald Glover dancing amidst scenes of chaos and violence. The visuals echo the equally unpredictable lyrics, which vary from "I know you wanna party/ Party just for me/ Girl, you got me dancin" to "This is America/ Police be trippin' now/ Yeah, this is America/ Guns in my area".

If this new cut is indicative of shift in content for Childish Gambino, we're certainly not mad at it.

Glover isn't a stranger to sketch comedy though. After writing, producing and starring in a number of shorts, Glover caught his big break when he joined the writer's room of Tina Fey's NBC hit 30 Rock. The role was originated by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. If this really is the end for Childish Gambino, it looks like he'll be going out with a bang.

Continue for the story behind Gambino's "Awaken, My Love!" headpiece below. He also signed a deal with RCA Records in January.

Glover gave audiences a little taste of what his take on the younger version of Lando would be like as he appeared as chairman for the first-ever "galactic summit for all black humans", which he said started from the question "Where the hell are all the black humans in space?" "I'm making another project right now, but I like endings, I think they're important to progress".

Don't miss an all-new Saturday Night Live tonight at 11:30/10:30c on NBC!
