Childish Gambino Debuts New Song 'Saturday' on SNL

07 May 2018, 12:27 | Erma Lawrence

Donald Glover, who goes by "Childish Gambino" in the music industry, hosted Saturday Night Live (SNL) and debuted his new song, "This Is America".

The video was directed by Hiro Murai and in the last few frames of the video, fans are convinced they've spotted SZA sitting on a vehicle. Actors Zoe Kravitz and Daniel Kaluuya introduced the performances.

Anyone who is a fan of Atlanta will see similarities between the show and this video. Despite his tremendous success, Glover believes it's time to retire his music alter-ego.

Entitled "A Kanye Place", Glover, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson, Beck Bennett and Cecily Strong are stalked by a monster in a cornfield, but can't keep quiet when they see Kanye's tweets. Gambino also seems to throw shade at other modern rappers in the business with their over-the-top style of dancing.

Come May 24, Glover will also be in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a young Lando Calrissian. What starts with the actor/musician grooving along to a beat of an acoustic guitar player sitting nearby turns into an instantly murderous moment, as Gambino picks up a gun and shoots the hooded man in the back of a head 53 seconds into the video. The movie hits theaters on July 19, 2019.

Childish Gambino's latest single, "This Is America" is available now.

It marks his first new material since 2016's Grammy-nominated album 'Awaken My Love!'. He also signed a deal with RCA Records in January. "I really can do anything". "I'm making another project right now, but I like endings, I think they're important to progress".

The video ends with Glover seemingly running for his life.

"Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will", he wrote.
