Examining the song as a standalone piece of music yields equal reward. Each time there's a gun-related tragedy, we grieve, debate and then go back to smiling and dancing until it happens again.

Glover also used his appearance on the show as an opportunity to release his powerful new single, "This Is America".


The video instantly became a hit, getting more than 11.6 milllion views in 24 hours on YouTube.

What does this say about Childish Gambino as an artist?

"Don't catch you slippin' now".

This project began as Glover's critically panned alter-ego, and has become something different entirely, and entirely brilliant.


Unsurprisingly, Glove was also his own musical guest. The track addresses everything from gun violence to terrorism while acknowledging the very human experience of "just wanting to dance" through it all.

From sketches that tackled America's obsession with Kanye West's Twitter feed to a hilarious take on diversity in sci-fi films, Glover made his mark. The underlying message - stay woke and don't give into distractions. You can rely on them for duties like "that thing where you roll the ball up the court to save time" and the pick-and-roll (i.e., picking up LeBron's laundry and rolling it on over to his house). The conversation of gun violence has re surged, as it is almost impossible for anyone with a pair of working eyes to be oblivious to the blatant message being allocated. Some saw the rapper's playful antics as a nod to the fictional Jim Crow cartoon while others believed he offered social commentary on how hip-hop has essentially turned a blind eye to pretty much everything going wrong in America.

"I'm sorry I hurt you". America' arrives right now because it provides a buffer and counterpoint. Hell, Marlon even tried a few of the moves on camera with us.
