American actor, comedian, writer, director, rapper, and DJ Donald McKinley Glover Jr. who goes by a number of aliases but is most notably recognized on the music scene as Childish Gambino stuns fans with another message packed track straight out of the blue. This one he titles, “Feels like summer”.
The brains behind the viral “This is America” video which left all media abuzz and inspired a number of cover versions which were just as well received (Nigerian artist Falz’s, “This is Nigeria” and SA artist Jovislash’s “This is South Africa”) is causing some buzz again on the music scene.
His new track, “Feels like summer” was posted to streaming services last week along with another song titled “Summer time magic” in a two track package called, “Summer pack”.
A sharp contrast from the politically charged “This is America”, “Feels like summer” is a breezy and heavily melodic piece.
Set vaguely like an attempt at a modern update of the “I Want You” -era Marvin Gaye, Childish Gambino’s latest summer track spots a lightly tropical atmosphere with un-ironically descriptions of the joys of summertime; being someone’s valentine; and the like.
Though still currently dealing with a legal dispute with Glassnote Records over unpaid royalties, and was (unofficially) accused of plagiarizing parts of “This Is America” last month, many have speculated that Summer Pack may be part of a project that Childish Gambino has in the works.
Whether this speculations turn out to be true or not, that the awesome feel on “Feels like summer” is definitely going to remain the same is sure.
