Donald Glover Ignores All the Controversy Around 'This Is America'

A still from Childish Gambino's

Driven in large part by its buzzy, socially-conscious video, Childish Gambino's new single "This Is America" should challenge for a No. 1 on debut on next week's Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 19); the Hot 100 blends weekly streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music. "Something people could play on Fourth of July".

Childish Gambino's "This Is America" has been doing some huge numbers and sparking quite the conversation ever since he debuted the music video for the song last weekend.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel he said: 'Some friends have sent a couple [of the pieces], but, for real, I haven't been on the Internet since [it came out]. "I'll just let it be".

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

"It's bad for me - I'm really sensitive", Donald joked. "I'll like, go into their Instagram and be like, 'You not so great! That baby's not even that cute!"' he quipped.


The video features topics deeply affecting the black community in America. Last night Glover's series "Atlanta FX" would have it's finale while Glover's newest film "Solo: A Star Wars Story" would have it's premiere.

Glover spoke about his role in Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which he stars alongside Alden Ehrenreich and Emilia Clarke.

"I called my dad first and told him, and that was a big moment", Glover said of when he first found out he got the job.
