Childish Gambino — This Is America

В официальном музыкальном клипе, безусловно, есть политический подтекст, связанный с насилием и оружием. В условиях политических и культурных потрясений, ролик «Это Америка», похоже, является комментарием о жизни чернокожих граждан в Америке и американской культуре в целом. Сочетая счастливые, беззаботные хоры и тёмные, агрессивные стихи, клип демонстрирует контраст восприятия и реальности.

Этот контраст может также ссылаться на циклические сдвиги в настроении, когда в Америке происходит стрельба. Одна секунда — вся нация возмущена, а следующая — все счастливы и беззаботны, умиротворены тенденциями поп-культуры.




Сингл «This Is America» дебютировал на первой позиции чарта Hot 100, отмечая первый раз Gambino в первой десятке Billboard. Видео на песню собрало 100 миллионов просмотров на YouTube в первую же неделю и 36 миллионов потоков на Spotify.
