Childish Gambino – ‘Heartbeat’

Our rating:

Myopic bleating

“[i]I got a heart, but the artichoke/Is the only thing girls want when you in that stroke[/i]”. Presumably this line refers to the contents of the Gambino trouser. Sexism of the sort peddled by Gambino is never appealing, and it’s doubly tiresome when combined with the self-loathing that characterises this whinge. Even an interesting synth sound that’s a bit like an impression of Justice’s ‘Water Of Nazareth’ won’t rescue this silly little man’s myopic bleating.
