Both hosting duties and musical guest duties on "Saturday Night Live" have typically gone to household names, i.e. celebrities who have totally confirmed their status as both musician and actor. Justin Timberlake comes to mind. So many SNL viewers were a bit thrown by "Atlanta" star Donald Glover also being the musical guest this past weekend, especially since when he's rapping/singing he's doing it as "Childish Gambino."
The performer dropped a brand-new single and music video, running with the hosting gig timing, and the song has people talking all around the country. We simultaneously see contrasting images like joyful dancing taking place against a backdrop of violence. Oh, and the song is titled "This Is America."
