Childish Gambino drops powerful music video

Donald Glover on SNL

John kicks off the new week with a review on the newest "Saturday Night Live", hosted by Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino.

Donald Glover unexpectedly released the first video from his upcoming - and by all accounts, final - album as Childish Gambino, the politically charged 'This Is America'. Theories about what it all means have started stacking up. Watch the music video and SNL performance below. One of the lyrics is "Grandma told me: get your money, black man".

Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.

Another highlight of the SNL skit is when Donald Glover is singing his song about intergalactic love, he's backed up by the one and only Max Rebo from Return of the Jedi.

The imagery also has sparked conversation about several other themes including police brutality, social media and what people are really paying attention to in the United States.

The references in the video, directed by Glover's Atlanta collaborator Hiro Murai, are quick and sharp, prompting viewers to keep the music video on repeat.

During his double-duty gig on this week's episode of Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino unleashed an intensely powerful video for his new record "This Is America".

However, that was SZA making a cameo at the very end, giving us hope that future collaborations are coming. The conversation of gun violence has re surged, as it is almost impossible for anyone with a pair of working eyes to be oblivious to the blatant message being allocated.
