SOTW | Childish Gambino – Redbone

Childish Gambino drops the second single from his upcoming album.


Everybody in this world loves a bit of Donald Glover. The dude has killed it in all kinds of media (I personally discovered him as the loveable Troy Barnes in Community. #sixseasonsandamovie) and looks set to return to his roots under the Childish Gambino name. Gambino seems to be heading into a funkier vibe with his sound according to his 2016 output so far, with ‘Me and Your Mama’ becoming a slick behemoth of grooves. However it’s the latest track that’s got us a little hot and bothered, and that’s Redbone.

With deep bass drums, slick synthesisers and pulsating basslines Redbone immediately creates an atmosphere that’s perfect for a round of body appreciation time. A dash of piano add a touch of sensuality to the mix, and the subtle submissions of excited breath in the background tips this track over the edge into prime sexy music. Gambino’s pitch shifted vocals provide the perfect direction to really ease things into play, and I simply cannot get enough of it.

Redbone is a wonderful track from Childish Gambino. It’s nearly six minutes of pure sexy vibes and superb soul sounds. It’s a track Prince would’ve wished to have created, but either way I’m glad it exists. Hot damn.
