Childish Gambino drops political video for new single 'This is America'

We know that Glover / Gambino love to try out new things, and with that in mind we're really impressed that he made a decision to come out tonight and perform a brand-new song.

"Saturday Night Live" took on "A Quiet Place" with a taped segment on the May 5 episode in which shocked reactions to Kanye West's increasingly wild tweets kept getting cast members killed.

Childish Gambino has had a busy weekend.

Anyone who is a fan of Atlanta will see similarities between the show and this video.

Host Donald Glover was among a small group of survivors in the sketch, which also included Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson and Cecily Strong. He also picked up Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy and Outstanding Director for the episode "B.A.N".

Donald Glover appeared on Satuday Night Live to promote his new film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he plays a young Lando Calrissian.

Attempts to rescue trapped Sibanye-Stillwater miners continue
One of the seismic events reportedly occurred about three kilometres from where the rescue team had been operating. Another employee had been located, but two remained unaccounted for Friday morning.

The actor also voiced Simba for Disney's upcoming The Lion King remake.

Glover is expected to release his new album, and very possibly his last, later this year.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Glover said, "Being a rapper is super awkward". "I really can do anything".

The video ends with Glover seemingly running for his life. The lyrics go from lighthearted ("I know you wanna party") to heavy ("This is America, police be trippin' now").

Glover can be now be seen on FX's Atlanta, which airs Thursdays at 10 p.m.
