In the four-minute commentary on gun violence, Gambino starts out grooving along to the beat of an acoustic guitar player, only to end up in committing murder, as he grabs a gun and shoots a man in the back of a head.
Then, it happens again as he opens fire on an entire choir of gospel singers. The video's choreographer, Sherrie Silver, retweeted a comment, perhaps in agreement, from someone who argued: "Childish Gambino's dance moves distracted all of us from the craziness that was happening in the background of the video & that's exactly the point he's trying to make". And despite the handsome distractions in life, it's important to acknowledge and stay focused on the injustices that surround us at any given second.

This repeated exposure to acts of violence - even when that exposure comes vicariously through the media - has had a numbing effect on Americans. This is a jarring listen punctuated by sweeping structural and sonic dissonance: lovely, choral folk melodies are carefully gestated and then cut abruptly, substituted for surgical, sonicboom bass pulses and Gambino's harsh verse.

Its jarring universe is redolent of "The Sunken Place" in Jordan Peele's 2017 social horror-thriller Get Out.

"This is America" has already set the bar for his swansong album. It's important as both a statement of artistry, and for the context in which it arrives, and we should break those things down piece-by-piece.
