Childish Gambino releases a new single, entitled, “Redbone”

Childish Gambino is fresh off the success of Atlanta. Not too long ago, he took listeners on a soulful and Funkadelic journey with “Redbone“, a song off of his “Awaken, My Love!” album.

Childish Gambino

“Awaken, My Love! began with a childhood memory. I remember listening to songs my dad would play — albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic — and not understanding the feeling I was feeling. I remember hearing a Funkadelic scream and being like, ‘Wow, that’s sexual and it’s scary.’ Not having a name for that, though; just having a feeling. That’s what made it great.” – Gambino, in an interview with Billboard

Some critics are calling Redbone Gambino’s greatest musical creation, and others are still savoring over its tasteful sound.

“The song is called Redbone, it’s funky and soulful and sad, and it’s easily the greatest song Childish Gambino has ever recorded.” – USA Today

“The soulful harmonies on this record sound as sweet as crackling bacon grease on a Sunday morning as Gambino takes us on a smoky and spacy ride.” – Vibe
