Childish Gambino Shares New Funky Single ‘Redbone’


Childish Gambino has shared the second song off his forthcoming album, Awaken, My Love!

“Redbone,” which sounds like a blend between pop and funk layered with Gambino’s squeezed vocals that almost sound chipmunk infected, made its debut on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show Thursday, as a Hottest Record.

This just comes weeks after Zane Lowe recently debuted the album’s first song, “Me and Your Mama,” on his Beats 1 show, playing the track six times in a row. That track is now No. 3 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart and No. 4 on the streaming service’s U.S. Viral 50 chart.

Awaken, My Love! will be Gambino’s first studio album since the release of the twice-Grammy nominated because the internet in 2013. The rapper followed that with mixtape Kauai in 2014.

Awaken, My Love! is set to release on Dec. 2. Listen to “Redbone” below.
