Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Hits No. 1 Spot In First Week

Hype Williams Compares Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video to Nas and Puffy's 'Hate Me Now'

Donald Glover's musical alter ego has pulled off a neat trick: Childish Gambino's "This Is America" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart after he performed it on Saturday Night Live on May 5. Her privilege also allowed her to miss the point (s) made in Glover's video which references minstrel shows, Jim Crow and the idea that guns have more rights in America than Black bodies.

"This Is America" is the lead single from Glover's upcoming fourth Childish Gambino album, and only the latest creative effort from the TV, film, and music star. Now it seems as though Childish will pull through, with a number one debut on the chart.

Canadian YouTube star Nicole Arbour is being slammed for "whitewashing" Donald Glover's This is America, a video that tackles prejudice, police brutality and violence against Black people. The song will finally replace Drake as the top artist on the chart, who possessed the last two number one songs in "God's Plan" and "Nice For What".
