New Music: Childish Gambino – Sober

by: Kyle Smart

Donald Glover is up to something as he posted a new “rough” track to his Soundcloud. In it, we have Childish Gambino sining, and just singing, with a poppy piano and funky synth in the back. His lyrics and execution are a complete ode to Michael Jackson/ Jackson 5 as the R&B melody hits the chorus, we get a Prince-esk guitar, which holds to the rock of Gambino. For a moment you think we are getting a rap out of Donald where the beat drops, and the song gets heavy, but it pulls back out into a bubbly rock. Maybe the rap is to come when this “rough” track is done?
