And while all this is happening in the background, Donald Glover struts, high-steps and dances his way in front of it all - a pointed reminder that society chooses to ignore what's really going on behind in front of our eyes.

During his double-duty gig on this week's episode of Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino unleashed an intensely powerful video for his new record "This Is America". Glover plays Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters May 25, and Glover's FX show Atlanta, which he created and stars in, has its Season 2 finale on May 10.

Donald Glover just released a new song and video, "This Is America" which many believe is a scathing attack on America's ignorance towards violence. Some viewers have pointed out that the people chasing him are not black, and so it may be another comment on race and police brutality.

The Grammy-winning artist also received praises from social media for his cryptic video.

He couldn't have picked a more poignant time to throw his hat into the discussion on gun violence in America.

He followed up the SNL performances by unleashing a thought-provoking music video for "This Is America" which has been trending on Twitter since its release.

A new album is expected later this year, with Glover set to appear in fall wit Rae Sremmurd and Vince Staples.

Glover, 34, said it himself during his opening monologue on "SNL".

This is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill music video with flashy cars and flashing money. Glover also revealed that he auditioned for the show back in the day but hadn't made the cut, pointing out how things sometimes work out in the end. "Jesse. Tyler. Ferguson", Donald Glover added.
