2018 Grammy Award Winner!
• Best Traditional R&B Performance: "Redbone"
Electrifying Psychedelic Soul, Funk & R&B On Vinyl LP!
Donald Glover, aka "Childish Gambino", has shown his talents as an actor,
writer, rapper and singer. He has made appearances on the NBC television show
"Community" and plays a lead role on "Atlanta" for FX. He has even been cast as
a character for a Star Wars film. But acting isn't all that he can do. This
performer has also released his own albums: Camp, Because the Internet and now
his third project, "Awaken, My Love!". In 2015, he was nominated for two Grammy
awards. With "Awaken, My Love!", Glover steers away from his usual hip hop
approach to music and instead, performs 11 songs with psychedelic soul, funk and
"When lead singles 'Me and Your Mama' and 'Redbone' rolled out with their
obvious connections to P-Funk freakouts and Prince’s climactic falsetto, it felt
like a purposeful step in his creative process, rather than a playful shift...
The album’s production is majestic, aiming squarely for the cosmos depicted on
its striking cover artwork. Like the cosmic soul it emulates, the atmosphere is
lush, full of period ambiance... The tracks are embellished with intricate
details throughout, like the delicate xylophone on 'Terrified.' 'Redbone' builds
from a slow jam into a peak of futuristic guitar and forceful staccato piano
chords." - Brian Josephs, SPIN
"On Donald Glover’s latest project as Childish Gambino, he ditches rap for
lovingly produced funk worship, resulting in his most enjoyable project yet."
- Matthew Strauss, Pitchfork
"For his third album, 'Awaken, My Love!', Gambino delves into the kind of
grungy stanklove that OutKast once indulged in on their magnum opuses...
listeners were stunned at the epic six-minute track ['Me and Your Mama'], its
soaring gospel chorus and the raggedly intense feeling he summoned with ease."
- Mosi Reeves, Rolling Stone, Rated 4.5/5
