Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Is Officially the No

Hype Williams Compares Childish Gambino's 'This Is America' Video to Nas and Puffy's 'Hate Me Now'

Donald Glover's musical alter ego, Childish Gambino, has scored the multi-talented performer his first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his new hit "This Is America", Billboard reports.

Additionally, the viral video for the song, directed by Hiro Murai, features a cameo by SZA, while the track features background vocals from Young Thug, 21 Savage, Quavo, Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jxmmi and BlocBoy JB.

Donald Glover is setting himself up to be the star of the summer. The video for "This is America" is also tied for the 5th fastest music video to reach 100M views in YouTube history, reaching the mark in under 9 days. This means it's Glover's highest charting song as Gambino, beating out the four-times platinum "Redbone", which peaked at No. 12.

The track also topped Billboard's weekly chart of digitally downloaded songs with 78,000 downloads.

The track unseats a 15-week reign at the top of the chart from Drake's latest singles, "Nice For What" and "God's Plan".
