True Art: Childish Gambino “This Is America” Music Video

Childish Gambino put out a next year Grammy nominee music video called “This Is America.” Childish Gambino dropped this song the day of his SNL appearance.

The music video shows a theatrical Gambino dancing and singing enthusiastically while violence of all kinds takes place all around him, the lyrics act as an indictment of the very medium they’re in; music, after all, often serves as a respite and distraction from reality. The song opens with a light refrain from a gospel choir before Gambino begins in: “We just wanna party, party just for you.” But things quickly take a darker turn, both musically and lyrically, as he investigates just what that “party” really means, alluding to everything from police violence to racial stereotypes and social media obsession as components of the modern American experience.

How do y’all feel about this Video?
