A few months ago, we were gifted the now-iconic “This Is America,” bringing back Childish Gambino and hopefully spelling a new project on the way. Today, our hopes become just a little more concrete as Donald Glover has released two brand new songs and it’s really feeling like summer. Not only because of the heat wave we just got over but also because Gambino came through with some absolute fire. For those that were a little disappointed when Glover decided to mostly rap on his last single, “Feels Like Summer” has the artist flexing his vocal chops as a singer, impressing immensely in the process.
Out of nowhere, Childish updated his YouTube page with two brand new tracks, brightening our days a little bit and making the middle of the week much easier to get past. With true summertime vibes, Gambino sings that on a day this hot, it certainly feels like summer and from the sounds of it, he was in Los Angeles in the last few weeks when he recorded this. A smooth offering, “Feels like Summer” is reminiscent of vintage soul songs, making full use of the singer’s influences and vast range of experience.
With both new tracks officially out, do you think we’ll get a crazy “This is America”-esque video for either of the joints soon?
