Childish Gambino Scores First Number 1 Single

Drizzy has spent last 16 weeks in a row on top of the chart - 11 weeks with "God's Plan" and 4 weeks with "Nice For What".

"This is America" becomes Childish Gambino's first number 1 single on the Hot 100. It immediately struck a chord with music fans, thanks to the video's haunting images of black oppression and gun violence. "Because of who Puff was and where he was going, he needed a release so he had no restraints filming this video", he continued.

"This Is America" is already the biggest hit of Glover's music career, beating out his 2017 hit "Redbone", which peaked at No. 12.
