Synth-funk track sees Gambino attempt to win a young woman's interest
Childish Gambino has released a new video for the track “Sober”.
The piece sees Gambino – real name Donald Glover – show off his wild dance moves as he attempt to impress a disinterested young woman in a café. Click above to watch.
The track is taken from the rapper’s recent release “Stn Mtn/Kauai”, which is named after his hometown Stone Mountain and the Hawaiian island Kauai.
In addition to recording under his Childish Gambino moniker, Glover is perhaps best known for starring in the sitcom Community and as a writer on hit show 30 Rock. He is currently set to create, produce and star in a new comedy set against the backdrop of the Atlanta rap scene.
The show, titled Atlanta, will depict two ambitious cousins and their attempts to succeed through their budding hip-hop careers. Glover will play college drop-out Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks who “sets out to seize the life he imagined for himself when his estranged cousin becomes a sudden star”.
US TV network FX has thus far only ordered a pilot to be made, which will be co-produced by Paul Simms (Girls) and Dianne McGunigle of Schiff Co.
