Two-time Grammy nominee and one of the 2017 Time 100 Most Influential People, Childish Gambino’s third studio album, Awaken, My Love!” was released to critical acclaim in December 2016 and marked his highest Billboard chart debut to date. The album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard 200, has been praised by fellow musicians George Clinton, Questlove, Pharrell, Drake, Usher and many more.  A sonic evolution and groundbreaking next step following his former releases, the genre blending STN MTN / Kauai mixtape and the twice-Grammy nominated rap album, because the internet, Gambino once again broke the mold.

The album’s lead single ‘Redbone’ is officially certified Platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA. The track is currently being played across six U.S. radio formats and is a mainstay on both the Spotify and iTunes charts. Out now, ‘Redbone’ is also featured in the opening credits of Jordan Peele’s #1 box office movie ‘Get Out’

Following the albums release, Gambino gave a hypnotic performance of ‘Redbone’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he exquisitely showcased his natural vocal range (watch here). This all lead to Gambino’s album being named one of the years best in a variety of 2016 year end lists and is on its way to being one of the year’s most seminal records. As the album continues to thrive and reach new audiences across the globe, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the “Awaken, My Love!” Virtual Reality Vinyl’(view here) on May 18th as well as Gambino’s return to the stage as one of this summers headline acts of New York City’s Governors Ball on June 3rd.
