Artist Spotlight: Childish Gambino

Source: Salon

Hey guys! So instead of doing an electronic artist this week I decided to focus on musician, singer-songwriter, actor, and comedian, Donald Glover.  Glover has been a favorite artist of mine for a while now and when performing he goes by the stage name Childish Gambino.  Glover's career started when he turned 23 and started working as a writer on the TV show 30 Rock.  He can also be seen acting on the show Community and Atlanta.  He was interested in creating music and released his first album Camp in 2011 and has been producing albums with hip hop, R&B, and electronic influences ever since.  Glover's newest album Awaken My Love! is expected to be released December 2nd (tomorrow!!) and is expected to be much different from what someone would expect of a rap album.  You can hear the singles "Me and Your Mama" and "Redbone" and experience how Glover's music has evolved since his first album.  Based on the songs that have already been released, Awaken My Love! is sure to not disappoint and will be full of soulful and intricate songs.  Be sure to check the album out and tune into 91.7FM WNJR to hear more from Childish Gambino and other artists like him!
