Fans, understandably, are freaking out, and turning to the caps lock key and that beloved Community GIF of him carting a stack of pizzas into a room engulfed in flames with abandon. While many were thrilled to see his first body of work since 2016’s Awaken, My Love!, the current context wasn’t absent from the discussion and a few voiced their relief at finding that he was trending across various social media networks because of the new songs instead of a coronavirus diagnosis.
Others noted that the chaotic artwork for Donald Glover Presents is fitting considering the global coronavirus pandemic.
Check out the some of the most enthusiastic reactions across the internet to Donald Glover Presents below.
