  • Check out Childish Gambino's brilliant new video for surprise track 'This Is America'

See the full video below, which was directed by Hiro Murai, who has worked on several episodes of "Atlanta".

If you listen closely to Childish Gambino's newly released single "This Is America", you'll realize it wasn't exactly a solo effort.

After a revisiting the record a few times, we've pinpointed some of the lines in which Gambino is assisted.

"In the video, he Represents Jim Crow and his Dance moves which his entertainment distracts The Children and Us as viewers from the Riots and Chaos in the background". Some viewers have pointed out that the people chasing him are not black, and so it may be another comment on race and police brutality.

Pyongyang Time is no more, North Korea syncs clocks with South
South Korean aviation officials are still weighing the proposal, which was requested by North Korea in February. "As I said yesterday, stayed tuned".

Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.

Chrissy had a baby shower last week and despite a dispute between her husband John Legend and Kanye West over West's support of President Donald Trump, both Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian West attended Chrissy's shower. The camera is deliberately focused only on Gambino dancing and rapping in the foreground while the chaotic scenes of unrest play on in the background. "This Is America" references numerous country's recent mass shootings from the Charleston, SC church shootings to Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School.

While Glover debuted the song during his "SNL" performance, it was the subsequent visuals that sent tongues a-wagging.

Childish Gambino's forthcoming fourth (and potentially final) album is expected to release this year.
