Childish Gambino drops harrowing video for new track This Is America

Donald Glover, who performs under the musical stage name Childish Gambino, released a music video for his new song, This is America over the weekend.

The video for This is America sees Bino dance erratically through a warehouse, interacting with scenes going on behind him - including a auto on fire, a horse riding past and schoolchildren dancing.

Donald Glover is all anyone is talking about this Monday.

"This Is America" lit up social media after its debut.

The video was directed by Hiro Murai and in the last few frames of the video, fans are convinced they've spotted SZA sitting on a auto.

It's pretty expansive and filmed in a warehouse, which allows for lots of action. If you're a Gambino rookie, you need to pay attention. "This is America/ Police be trippin' now/ Yeah, this is America/ Guns in my area", he raps.

Glover's music video, directed by long-time collaborator Hiro Murai, is a visceral and metaphorical representation of violence, especially interracial violence, in America over the years. Glover, meanwhile, continues to gleefully dance away, performing some of the trendiest dance moves like the Hustle and Gwara Gwara while he ignores the chaos, violence and riots that erupt in the background.

At the video's end, he appears to be chased by a white mob.

On Sunday, the singer Instagrammed some photos of herself on set.
