"How the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness?"

Adele has responded to new music coming from Childish Gambino, saying she “adores” the artist, while praising his “greatness”.

At the weekend, Childish Gambino (aka musician/actor Donald Glover) released a video for new track ‘This is America’. It marked the Atlanta creator’s first new material since 2016’s Grammy-nominated album ‘Awaken My Love!’.

The political video is directed by Hiro Murai and sees Glover cause chaotic scenes before dancing around them. Glover released the video during his appearance on Saturday Night Live, where he served as both the host and musical guest.
