"This is America" becomes Childish Gambino's first number 1 single on the Hot 100.

"This Is America" is already the biggest hit of Glover's music career, beating out his 2017 hit "Redbone", which peaked at No. 12. Drizzy has sat at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 15 weeks, with "God's Plan" occupying the slot for 11 weeks, while "Nice for What" claimed the top of charts for four weeks.

Singer-songwriter Childish Gambino says he avoided the internet after the release of his latest song "This Is America" as he is really sensitive about negative comments.

Watch a trailer for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, produced by Jordan Peele
The first trailer for Spike Lee's provocative drama BlacKkKlansman has arrived. And based on some early reactions from Cannes , it just might be.

During his panel talk at Red Bull's Music Festival New York Director's Series, Williams compared Gambino's controversial video with his own "Hate Me Now" visual starring Nas and Diddy (or Puffy at the time).

Here's the deets: the song received 65.3 million US streams for its opening week, and 78,000 downloads sold with a 9.4 million radio airplay audience. "This Is America" also sold 78,000 downloads within the first five days of its release.

The song, fueled by its socially-conscious video, could dethrone Drake's "Nice for What". Donald Glover laid bare the conversations that are often being held outside of the music world, and delivered them through haunting imagery and in a form even White America couldn't ignore. He also stars as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming "Star Wars" film, "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
