Childish Gambino Finds Inspiration in London

Good news Gambino lovers. Donald Glover decided not to close the musical book on his alter ego, Childish Gambino. During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Glover explained that living in the United Kingdom allowed him to open a fresh box of musical inspiration.

Glover has been residing in London since January 2017 to film the new Star Wars movie. He told Clara Amfo of BBC Radio 1 that London has been “very instrumental” to his music.

Glover said he’s been keeping close tabs on UK-based talent, but he hasn’t tapped anyone to collaborate on his upcoming work. “I have met a bunch of UK artists and definitely listened to some of their music,” he shared with Amfo. “I’m trying to see who is available for certain things but I haven’t asked anybody.”

So what is Glover waiting for? Perfection … maybe? “I want to make sure it’s ready,” he explained.

If you recall, in June, Glover told Governors Ball attendees he plans to put Childish Gambino to rest: “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album.” He later explained to Huffington Post he was weary of his musical work becoming too mainstream.

One could argue that Gambino is definitely on everyone’s radar, especially since Redbone appeared on the soundtrack of the hit horror flick Get Out.

In June, Redbone which is the second single from, Awaken, My Love! went double platinum. The song peaked at No. 12 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. (August 19, 2017)

It turns out living in London is also giving Glover an opportunity to create the second season of Atlanta. “It’s almost ready,” he shared during the BBC Radio 1 interview. “I think it’s better than the first season. You just have to wait a little longer.”

Dear Mr. Gambino, We are all patiently waiting.

Sincerely,
