Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Tops Billboard 100

Donald Glover's musical alter ego has pulled off a neat trick: Childish Gambino's "This Is America" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart after he performed it on Saturday Night Live on May 5.

Baristas Fired Over Playing Young Dolph On Campus
Then, the baristas got fired. "I know for a fact that the VP at that school, he get money, but he don't get money like Dolph". He's now working on a way to get Simmons and Brown back as employees at Joe Van Gogh and heard about their recent cash flow.

"This Is America" has dominated the conversation online since it came out, so it's not all that shocking that it's hit No. 1. The video is what attracted a lot of the attention because of the matters it tackled. The song will finally replace Drake as the top artist on the chart, who possessed the last two number one songs in "God's Plan" and "Nice For What".

Trump's Iran Policy Is Blowing Up His Energy Agenda

When we came in, we were in the bottom three, and we've ended up in 13th so I would have taken that all day long, that's for sure".

As a result of the accompanying buzzing and socially-conscious visual, the track gave Gambino his first Hot 100 No. 1 and first track to break into the Top 10; his previous high was "Redbone" at No. 12 last August. "This Is America" also sold 78,000 downloads within the first five days of its release. The video earned 85.3 million views in its first week on YouTube, making it the biggest first week debut of any video this year and #1 on the YouTube Songs chart in 11 countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and more. (Of course, many top-streaming songs lean hip-hop and are, thus, not in the wheelhouse of pop radio until they've proven mass appeal over multiple weeks.) By the time these songs become unavoidable on the airwaves, the Spotify and Apple consumers of the world have already moved on to the next sensation, or maybe even the one after that. His video took the country by storm due to its graphic and honest depiction of gun violence and police brutality.
