As well as disclosing information about his home-life, Glover took the performance in a more dramatic direction when he announced that his third studio album, ‘Awaken, My Love!’, would be the rapper’s penultimate album under the Gambino moniker.
Before exiting the stage, Glover said: “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album”. However, this isn’t the first we have heard of the comedian-musician wanting to retire from Childish Gambino.
Watch the announcement below.
Back in 2015, prior to the release of his ‘STN MTN/Kauai’ mixtape, Glover said on the ‘Today’ show: “I always wanna do music. I love music. And I wanna be putting out projects quietly everywhere, and I wanna produce. I guess Childish Gambino is a period in my art time”.
“I want to have periods in my life. I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings.”
Dinald Glover is making a big move to the small and big screens in the next year. You can catch the actor playing a younger Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo film as well as working on an animated TV series based on ‘Deadpool’.
