Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino is the alter ego of multi-hyphenate American entertainer Donald Glover, who is also known for acting roles on television shows like Community and the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Atlanta, as well as the film Solo: A Star Wars Story.

As Childish Gambino, Glover refined his off-kilter brand of hip-hop on his 2013 breakthrough album Because the Internet, before making a sharp turn toward R&B-inspired funk, which won him a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance in 2017 for the single ‘Redbone’.

In 2018, his politically-charged song ‘This Is America’ debuted at No.1 in the US charts, buoyed by a viral music video that addressed gun violence and racial injustice.

The success of those two projects launched him into a creative burst, which led to the release of his genre-defying, mind-bending 3.15.20 album in 2020.
