Download: Childish Gambino – This Is America

“This Is America” is a song by top American rapper Childish Gambino. Co-written by Donald Glover, Ludwig Göransson alongside Jeffery Lamar Williams and produced by Glover and Göransson, it was released on May 5, 2018, at the same time that Gambino was hosting that day’s episode of Saturday Night Live.

The instructive song features background vocals by American rappers Young Thug (who also has writing credit as Williams), Slim Jxmmi, BlocBoy JB, Quavo, and 21 Savage. The song addresses the wider issue of gun violence in the United States, the high rate of mass shootings in the United States, along with longstanding racism and discrimination against African Americans.
