Shirtless Donald Glover debuts intense 'This Is America' video, song on 'SNL'

What Did You Miss on Saturday Night Live This Week? Donald Glover Proves He Could Have Done It! Plus Martin Short, Jimmy Fallon, Ben Stiller, ScarJo, and Stormy Round Out Star Studded Episode

Childish Gambino in a still from "This is America".

The song debuted as Glover hosted Saturday Night Live, and was performed after an introduction from Daniel Kaluuya.

As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background. Gambino ties all of these ideas together with school children dancing, recording activity on their cellphones, a Black choir and police chaos.

He couldn't have picked a more poignant time to throw his hat into the discussion on gun violence in America.

One can also make the assumption that Glover's character is being chased because he murdered 11 people over the course of the video.

He followed up the SNL performances by unleashing a thought-provoking music video for "This Is America" which has been trending on Twitter since its release. If you think anything other than gun and police violence, you obviously need to catch up on your celebrity politics.

Childish Gambino's forthcoming fourth (and potentially final) album is expected to release this year.

During his opening monologue on the show, he noted that rather than be seen as a triple threat, he views himself as just a threat.

The actor, singer, and writer made a serious impression on the sketch show, to make up for how they'd rejected him before. Glover was charming and amusing, brought Star Wars starpower, and Atlanta brilliance.

Many fans are skeptical of the Solo movie, but several agree that Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian is already a standout.
