Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Is Officially the No

Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Is Officially the No

It's also debuted at number one on Billboard's Hot R&B /Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs, marking Gambino's first #1 on both of those charts as well. Drizzy has spent last 16 weeks in a row on top of the chart - 11 weeks with "God's Plan" and 4 weeks with "Nice For What".

CHILDISH GAMBINO has explained why he is too "sensitive" to check out the reaction to his controversial viral video "This Is America".

Donald Glover's musical alter ego, Childish Gambino, has scored the multi-talented performer his first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his new hit "This Is America", Billboard reports.

A chance encounter gave Webb Simpson edge for Players win
Sawgrass on the eve of the tournament a year ago that Simpson had a chance meeting with Tim Clark, the injured P.G.A. Australian Jason Day (68), with two wins already this season, and Jason Dufner (68) were tied for fifth at 13 under.

Billboard reports that the music video for "This Is America", which now has over 110 million views on YouTube, accounted for a whopping 68 percent of the song's total streaming. "This Is America" also sold 78,000 downloads within the first five days of its release. Donald Glover laid bare the conversations that are often being held outside of the music world, and delivered them through haunting imagery and in a form even White America couldn't ignore.

But Mr. Glover may be one of the last artists to benefit from chart rules that counted free streams from outlets like YouTube on a basis equal to paid streams from subscription services like Apple Music or Spotify's premium tier.

His latest film, "Solo", in which he plays a young Lando Calrissian, opens in theaters May 25 and is expected to be the No. 1 film that week.
