Music Video: Childish Gambino – “Feels Like Summer”
Donald Glover (street name Childish Gambino) is back with another video that is nakedly intentional in its bid for viral success. “Feels Like Summer” depicts this black celebrity utopia where everyone seems to be getting along: Michelle Obama embraces Kanye West; Dr. Dre, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and Jay-Z do a dance routine while Gucci Mane sunbathes; Oprah and Tiffany Haddish braid Lil Uzi Vert and Kehlani’s hair, respectively; and my personal favorite, Nicki Minaj builds a house with toy blocks only to have Travis Scott pull one of the them, sending the whole thing crashing. The shade.
There are a ton of other celebrities in it (all of whom have been tagged in this post). As expected, the internet is already rushing to the “genius” label because Donald Glover clearly has a spell on you people. That being said, I’ll concede that I like the video a lot — if only for the fact that it distracts you from the song, which I have never liked. I definitely prefer it to “This Is America,” which had the whole internet cappin’. Peep the clip below.
