There is now an official trailer for The Lion King where we can hear Beyoncé Knowles and Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) singing and harmonizing on the classic, “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” Check it out here. Pretty safe to say this is going to be a massive movie and theatrical event for a […]
The festival features eight different stages to cater to fans of rock, indie, country, folk, electronic, and hip-hop, so regardless of one’s musical persuasion, this lineup features something for everyone.
Pink has never fit in — so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels. It’s a weird thing to say about … More »
Remember when Childish Gambino was retiring? God, those were the days. Instead, Donald Glover has seemingly doubled-down on his music alter ego, performing at Coachella and launching a mediocre movie, Guava Island, that co-starred Rihanna. More »
Childish Gambino performed his headlining slot at Coachella Friday night/Saturday morning in coordination the release of his new movie, Guava Island, directed by “This Is America” Grammy-award winning director, Hiro Murai.
The energetic performance was met with dips and dives of energy, as seen in the clip below where Donald Glover’s performing alter-ego hit festival goers with an intense new song possibly called “Warlords” (according to a leaked setlist) followed by a ambient, gospel rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” The new song covers tribal influences and energy through primal chanting, megaphone sounding vocals, and brooding tones.
Other highlights from the set included smoking a joint with a fan during “Late Night In Kauai;” dedicating “Riot” to Nipsey Hussle, Mac Miller, and his father, and the audience; and hugging Janelle Monáe after “This Is America.”
Before it became Childish Gambino material and an Arcade Fire music video, Black Orpheus was a pretty good movie. The 1959 Brazilian drama was a re-interpretation of the Greek tragedy imbued with enough imagination to not simply be a blacker Orpheus.

The film is directed by Hiro Murai, who directed the Grammy Award-winning “This Is America” music video along with numerous episodes of Atlanta, further building anticipation for the star-studded love affair. Rihanna plays a character named Kofi who falls in love with a singer, Deni, portrayed by Donald Glover (Chilidsh Gambino) himself. Deni begins to gain fame, dealing with the business woes and politics of throwing a festival. During the film, Glover’s character even perform’s Childish Gambino’s “This is America” and “Feels Like Summer.” He also sings a new song called “Red’s Cargo.”
Billed as “A Childish Gambino Film,” the film’s distribution method and release teasers through Amazon Prime are certainly derived from the creative mind of the renaissance artist.
