This past week, Donald Glover’s great FX show Atlanta returned to TV, and Glover will have his biggest big-screen role ever this spring when he shows up in the Star Wars prequel Solo as Lando Calrissean. You’d think this might lead Glover to put his musical alter-ego Childish Gambino on the back-burner for a little … More »
Donald Glover is the creator of Atlanta, easily the best new show that’s been on TV in the past few years. But ever since its first season ended, Glover has been playing either Childish Gambino, his musical alter-ego, or Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming Star Wars prequel Solo. So it is tremendously exciting that … More »
The second season of Donald Glover’s mindblowing, understated, loosely music-related FX series Atlanta — subtitled Robbin’ Season — premieres 3/1. That’s only 16 days away! Yet it still doesn’t feel soon enough now that I’ve watched the latest trailer and been transported back into the Emmy/Peabody/Golden Globe-winning series’ unique headspace. Unlike previous teasers, … More »
Before this year’s Grammys, news broke that Lorde would not be performing at the ceremony, since the producers wouldn’t let her sing one of her own songs — an invitation extended to all four other Album Of The Year nominees, all of whom were men.

Donald Glover’s Childish Gambino project picked up five nominations at the Grammys this year for “Awaken, My Love!”, including for Record Of The Year (“Redbone”) and Album Of The Year.

They probably will; they always do. Yet thanks to a somewhat promising slate of nominees in the major categories, a similarly half-decent … More »
One of hip-hop’s beloved, Childish Gambino, has signed a new record and label deal under RCA Records. As he previously released his past three studio albums, Camp, Because the Internet, and Awaken, My Love!, under Glassnote, he will be moving forward to join the likes of G-Eazy, A$AP Rocky, and Yo Gotti under his new contract. RCA Records is an American record label owned by Sony Music, a subsidiary of Sony Corporation of America. It is one of Sony Music Entertainment’s three flagship record labels, alongside Columbia Records and Epic Records.
Last year, the producer had announced that Awaken, My Love! would be the last of his musical productions, however, the multi-talented actor, comedian, and director has now divulged that there is more music to come in 2018. According to Variety, new Childish Gambino music is expected “later this year,” and in a statement, he called the new record deal “a necessary change of pace.” He is also set to perform at the 60th Grammy Awards on Jan. 28.
