“Daylight…I wake up feeling like you won’t play right…I used to know but now that sh*t don’t feel right…it made me put away my pride…”
Childish Gambino has just released Redbone, the second song from his upcoming album Awaken, My Love. Many may know Childish Gambino as Donald Glover, star & creator of the new hit show Atlanta. He has alternated back & forth between his on-screen persona & his rap persona for years & has garnered many fans on both sides. I personally am a big fan of his album Before The Internet & have been waiting anxiously for his return to music. Awaken, My Love will be available December 2nd. He seems to be playing around with a different sound this go round. The songs so far have been heavily influenced by Soul & Funk. If you heard this song without knowing it was from Childish Gambino, you would not know. I’m excited to see just how far he will push it. It goes, “If you want it…you can have it…if you need it…we can make it…if you want it…you can have it…but stay woke…”.
