Childish Gambino avoided internet after 'This Is America' video release

Childish Gambino avoided internet after 'This Is America' video release”

While the video by the rapper/singer/actor has been analysed for all its underlining message both in imagery and lyrics on the state of America, Arbour thought it would be a good idea doing a parody of it called the women's edit.

The track unseats a 15-week reign at the top of the chart from Drake's latest singles, "Nice For What" and "God's Plan".

Billboard reports that the music video for "This Is America", which now has over 110 million views on YouTube, accounted for a whopping 68 percent of the song's total streaming.

"This Is America" has dominated the conversation online since it came out, so it's not all that shocking that it's hit No. 1. He's really not making music after this.

The track is also at the top of the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts.

The run of God's Plan, Nice For What, and This is America makes history on the Hot 100, marking the first time three songs have consecutively debuted at number one. Even "God's Plan" - which debuted almost four months ago at this point - is still stuck at No. 3 on the chart (behind Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey's "The Middle" and Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to Be"), having climbed there four weeks earlier, after having already given way to "Nice for What" atop the Hot 100.

"This Is America" is Glover's first top 10 single on the chart. His video took the country by storm due to its graphic and honest depiction of gun violence and police brutality. Gambino said during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!".
