The creator of Atlanta damn near broke the internet this weekend. At one point, the actor/musician’s gig as host/musical guest on SNLled to both Donald Glover and Childish Gambino to trend on Twitter.
Then at midnight on Sunday, Glover tweeted out links to a new music video for “This Is America.” The song’s title became another trending topic, and the vid garnered shout-outs from fellow artists such as Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, and Kanye West
A lot of non-celebrities also took interest in Gambino’s new visuals too. “This Is America” collected over 10 million views on YouTube in its first 24 hours on the platform.
Plus, the single shot up to the top of the iTunes Songs chart. Glover debuted another new record titled “Saturday” on SNL as well
