Childish Gambino Drops Dope New Album ‘Awaken My Love’ [STREAM]
After releasing two funk-laced, soulful singles, Childish Gambino has released his new album Awaken My Love!
The album is compact, at just 11-tracks long and has no features. The project finds Gambino stretching himself musically and vocally, showcasing how deep his talent runs. On the sultry, mid-tempo "Redbone," he offers a love script to his woman.
“Daylight, I wake up feeling like you won’t play right/I usually know but now that shit don’t feel right/It made me put away my pride/So long/You made a n— wait for some so long,” he sings over a track that pays homage to Bootsy Collins’ classic, “I’d Rather Be With You.”
While on the lead track, for which he just released a virtual reality video, "Me and Your Mama," he draws on Prince and the Funkadelic to deliver a raw, funk-fried love song.
“They want us to see us falling apart / You know that I love you / So let me into your heart,” he sings.
Awaken My Love!, is his first album in three years since releasing Because The Internet in 2013.
