Childish Gambino's Explosive 'This Is America' Scores 16M Views Overnight

Childish Gambino Releases New Song & Video 'This Is America' — Watch

The actor, singer, and writer made a serious impression on the sketch show, to make up for how they'd rejected him before.

Praiseworthy tweets for the Atlanta-native continued pouring in from the late night until early Sunday morning. But, in triumphant fashion, he ended up appearing on "SNL" anyhow. Childish Gambino performed two brand new songs, "Saturday" and "This Is America".

Among the fresh horses under consideration are Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip and Federico Tesio victor Diamond King. But Baffert isn't going there yet. "That's the best Kentucky Derby-winning performance that I brought up here".

He appeared in nearly every segment, including this sketch where he skewers the lack of black characters in films and television shows about outer space. In that sketch, he asks the big question: "Where the hell are all the black people in space?" However, when you play the music video back, it's obvious Childish Gambino is serving as a decoy from what's going on around him.

As for SNL, for his first performance, he was introduced by Zoe Kravitz, who held a red Solo cup as she walked over and joined a party on stage, as Gambino performed the new track "Saturday". The vibe was particularly upbeat and reminiscent of Harry Belafonte's "Day-O". The vibe was particularly upbeat, as he crooned, "Saturday, all I wanna do is make you dance, girl, and fall in love".

Reactions to "This Is America" - directed by Gambino's long-time collaborated Hiro Murai, and choreographed by Sherrie Silver - are pretty much what you'd expect: absolutely, unequivocally floored.

In less than 24 hours, the complex and layered music video received over 10 million views on YouTube.
