Childish Gambino has released the video for new single ‘This Is America’.
The video, which was released over the weekend and quickly went viral, is a politically-charged four-minute, single-take video full of metaphors about race and gun violence in America. Directed by Atlanta’s Hiro Murai, the video features a gospel choir, a cast of dancing school children, and a brief cameo from SZA at the end.
Earlier this year, Childish Gambino signed a new deal with RCA Records - joining the likes of SZA, Justin Timberlake and more on the label - meaning the follow-up to his third album ‘Awaken, My Love!’, released in 2016, could be on the way this year.
