RCA RecordsChildish Gambino's smash hit "This Is America" has debuted at number one on Billboard's Hot 100, making it the rapper's first #1 on the chart.

"This Is America" will handily top Childish's other highest topping song, "Redbone", of his last album, Awaken, My Love!

Donald Glover is setting himself up to be the star of the summer.

The debut is a huge achievement for Gambino - a.k.a. cross-platform phenom Donald Glover - and also a particularly telling one for where both the Hot 100 and pop music in general are at in 2018. His previous best was number 12 past year with "Redbone".

Featuring scenes of gun violence, racism and police brutality, it quickly became a talking point and led to a surge of interest in the promo online.
