The Guitar Player in Childish Gambino's New Video Isn't Trayvon Martin's Dad

Director, actor, producer and musician Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, has given his chart-topping new music video a distinctly South African twist, performing the local dance, "Gwara Gwara".

This is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill music video with flashy cars and flashing money. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.

Like we said, Saturday Night Live has some writers who have been watching basketball this year.

The powerful song, a commentary on gun violence in America, is Donald Glover's first single since 2017's Terrified, off his Grammy-nominated 2016 album Awaken, My Love! .

The "Atlanta" creator and star began his Saturday night by hosting late-night sketch comedy show, "SNL".

Of Rihanna's Best Fashion Moments At The Met Gala
That's a question we expect to hear more than usual, with the 2018 Met Gala happening this very evening in NY . So it's fair to say that whatever Madonna wears for the Met Gala is going to be nothing short of spectacular.

He also appeared in a new, 30-second teaser clip for the movie, which drops May 25. The vibe was particularly upbeat and reminiscent of Harry Belafonte's "Day-O".

Reactions to "This Is America" - directed by Gambino's long-time collaborated Hiro Murai, and choreographed by Sherrie Silver - are pretty much what you'd expect: absolutely, unequivocally floored.

In less than 24 hours, the complex and layered music video received over 10 million views on YouTube. Later, he guns down a gospel choir in a scene eerily reminiscent of the 2015 terrorist attack at a Charleston church that killed nine people attending a bible study.

Marlon Wayans is a huge fan of the "This Is America" video Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, just released - not only for its message, but for what he calls Donalds' stripper-inspired choreography.
