I don’t know how Donald Glover does it. It’s hard enough sustaining one job, let alone acting on a hit television show (Community) and creating music. Though his debut album received mixed reviews last year, Glover’s rap alter-ego Childish Gambino has not slowed down. In fact, it seems as though the criticism has pushed the lyricist to create better music. Case in point: “Silk Pillow,” a new track featuring Beck.
The tune sounds like it could have been released in 1994, as Beck sings in his old half-rapping style that made Mellow Gold such a large hit. Listen to “Silk Pillow,” below.
