Childish Gambino is definitely one of the breakout American Sweethearts of 2017, after years in the entertainment and music industries. With his junior LP, Awaken, My Love !, Gambino hit it out of the park, producing an album with classics such as the now triple platinum track, Redbone.
Released last November, the album is inspired by the sounds of Funkadelic and is drenched in sexy, sultry vibes. Before Redbone reached its triple platinum seal of approval, the track as well hit another accolade, reaching the #12 spot on on the Billboard Hot 100, before becoming the artist's third platinum single.
In his own name, Donald Glover, Childish Gambino has also been talked about for his talents as a producer and actor, winning this year's Emmy for Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series for his work on FX's Atlanta.
