Childish Gambino recently performed an unreleased song at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. This was completely unexpected considering the rapper announced that he was going to stop making music earlier this year in February.
Gambino’s absence on social media helped securely keep the performance a secret, shocking fans not only at the festival but worldwide. The new track is obviously a sign that Gambino is up to something. Could the rapper be possibly constructing the last album ever under the name of Childish Gambino? Or was he just putting up a front only to give his music more exposure? Regardless of his intentions, the song sounds mad dope. His clear falsetto singing conquers this song. The signature synth embellished R&B production is present, but it seems like he’s switching up to a more groovy sound. The transition was full of energy and soul, almost kind of Jimi Hendrix. If Gambino’s last album consists of the same sensation given off here, he’s definitely going out with a bang.
