Three of his albums re-enter the Billboard 200 chart, led by "Awaken, My Love!"
After a busy week for Donald Glover, and his musical alter-ego Childish Gambino, the latter’s album sales gained a whopping 419 percent in the U.S. in the week ending May 10, according to Nielsen Music. Glover hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live on May 5 and, during the show, performed his new buzzy single “This Is America" and released its much-discussed music video.
Collectively, Childish Gambino’s catalog of albums sold 11,000 copies -- up from just a little more than 2,000 in the week previous. (None of those albums include the Billboard Hot 100-topping “This Is America,” though it is presumed to be featured on his forthcoming new album.)
