Watch Childish Gambino Debut Another New Song, 'Saturday', On Saturday Night Live

Donald Glover on SNL Watch Childish Gambino Debut Another New Song, 'Saturday', On Saturday Night Live
Hannah Rogers | 07 May, 2018, 11:49

This weekend brought Donald Glover to Saturday Night Live to make his debut as both host and musical guest (under his Childish Gambino hip-hop moniker).

"They're at Chrissy Teigen's house", host Donald Glover says at one point, to which Cecily Strong responds, "No, Kanye".

The best-executed pop culture spoof of the night, though, may have come in a pre-taped segment that parodies recent horror hit A Quiet Place.

Excited to have your favorite sketch comedy series back on the NBC network tonight?

There are also comparisons between Glover's movements and expressions and the Jim Crow character, an offensive representation of black people in America.

"This is America" marks the first music released by Childish Gambino since 2016's "Awaken, My Love!".

Glover stars as Lando Calrissian in the highly anticipated film Solo: A Star Wars Story, in theaters Friday, May 25. The vibe was particularly upbeat and reminiscent of Harry Belafonte's "Day-O".

As you can see (above), watch Childish Gambino's ambitious and interesting video for the politically charged track!

Glover is expected to release a new album in 2018, and it could very well be his last.

Today, Glover is also known for his acclaimed FX series Atlanta, which earned him a Golden Globe and two Emmys past year. He is also seen shooting a church choir.

Glover, who largely kept politics out of his SNL hosting duties, performed "This Is America", on the live show, which highlights the problem of gun violence consuming the country. "Look how I'm livin' now / Police be trippin' now / Yeah, this is America / Guns in my area (word, my area) / I got the strap / I gotta carry "em".
