Shortly after he took the stage to host and perform on Saturday Night Live, Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, released a (literally) breathtaking visual for his new track, "This Is America."
In the four-minute clip, Gambino goes from dance meditations to murder in the blink of an eye -- and that's the point. What starts with the actor/musician grooving along to the beat of an acoustic guitar player sitting nearby turns into an instantly murderous moment, as Gambino picks up a gun and shoots the man, now hooded, in the back of a head 53 seconds into the video.
The first words out of his mouth? "This is America. Don't catch you slippin' up."
