Third album, third time switching up his sound. Camp, Because The Internet, and now, Awaken, My Love! In between all of his musical creations, Childish Gambino (known also as Donald Glover) embarks on other ventures and goals. For his latest album (equipped with 11 tracks), he explained to Billboard where the inspiration came from.
I remember listening to songs my dad would play — albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic — and not understanding the feeling I was feeling. I remember hearing a Funkadelic scream and being like, ‘Wow, that’s sexual and it’s scary.’ Not having a name for that, though; just having a feeling. That’s what made it great
Prior to receiving the album, were gifted two singles: “Me and Your Mama” and “Redbone.” Now the entire album is here for us to analyze, question, and hopefully enjoy. With that being said, enjoy.
