This Is America

This Is America - Childish Gambino song image


“This is America” was released on May 6th, 2018, and has been speculated to be the first single for Gambino’s upcoming album. It is his first single since the release of his 2016 studio album “Awaken, My Love!”. Released along with an accompanying music video, the song serves as a commentary on the condition of black Americans in 2018. The stark contrast between the happy, carefree chorus and the dark, aggressive verses highlights the way the black experience is perceived in popular culture versus reality. This contrast can also allude to the cyclical shifts in mood in America whenever there is a shooting – one second, the entire nation is in uproar, but the next, they are happy and unconcerned, placated by vapid pop culture trends, and the cycle persists. The song’s release coincided with Gambino’s appearance on Saturday Night Live, on which he also performed the song along with another new track, "Saturday".
