Childish Gambino avoided internet after This Is America video release

Fortnite This Is America Hype Williams Compares Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video to Nas and Puffy's 'Hate Me Now'

Driven in large part by its buzzy, socially-conscious video, Childish Gambino's new single "This Is America" should challenge for a No. 1 on debut on next week's Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 19); the Hot 100 blends weekly streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music. The latter's track "Redbone" hit No. 12 en route to three Grammy noms including Record of the Year and a win for Best Traditional R&B performance.

While the video by the rapper/singer/actor has been analysed for all its underlining message both in imagery and lyrics on the state of America, Arbour thought it would be a good idea doing a parody of it called the women's edit. Now it seems as though Childish will pull through, with a number one debut on the chart.

As a result, Childish knocks Drake's "Nice for What" from the top spot to number two and also effectively ends Drizzy's reign of 15 weeks at number one on the Hot 100.

Basketball: Experience key against league-best Houston Rockets, says Steve Kerr
Chris Paul is probably the NBA's second-best point guard, but he's a tier below Curry, who's won two MVP awards since 2015. Quotable: "If you can go in and get a road win in Game 1, it changes the whole dynamic of the series".

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). As of today, the video on YouTube stands at a whopping 108 million views.

His recently released "This Is America" has officially topped the USA song charts, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"This Is America" isn't explicitly a protest song, but its lyrics - from the "This is America/ Don't catch you slippin' now" refrain of the verses to the "Get your money, black man" chant of the chorus - bear the obvious weight of recent news headlines and social debates, on topics like gun violence and racially charged police confrontations.
