Childish Gambino is paving the way to become one of the greatest to ever do it. He succeeds in pretty much everything he does whether it’s music, acting, writing or directing. Most recently, he sparked a national conversation following the release of his latest single, “This Is America.” The “Redbone” singer performed it on Saturday Night Live before releasing the video that same evening. It didn’t come as much of a surprise that it ended up launching to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. However, “This Is America” and his performance on “SNL” helped all three of his albums re-enter the Billboard 200.
Childish Gambino’s latest single and his appearance on “SNL” has helped three of his albums re-enter the Billboard 200. In addition, his album sales have spiked up by 419%, according to Billboard. Their report indicates all together, he moved 11K copies in comparison to 2K from the week prior. Awaken, My Love! reaches number 45 on the Billboard 200 with 12K equivalent album units moved within the week while Because Of The Internet follows at no. 61 with 10K units moved. Camp sits at the tail end of the charts at no. 197 with 500K units.
In addition, his streams have gone up 487% which also includes the 65.3M he gained through his latest single, “This Is America.” Hopefully, he’ll be announcing his new album soon.
