Awaken, my love! / Childish Gambino.

Glover, Donald, 1983- (composer.). Childish Gambino, 1983- (performer.). Göransson, Ludwig, 1984- (composer,, performer.). Jones, Brent (Musician), (performer.). Best Life Singers, (performer.).


"What is most striking about Gambino's newest album is its departure from the low-key rap flows and electronic textures that characterized his previous work. Rather, Awaken My Love! is steeped in '70s funk, from its close-up face cover image (reminiscent of Funkadelic's Maggot Brain) to the guitar-heavy sounds that fill the disc. Most notably of all, Gambino generally departs from rapping in favor of singing."--Black Grooves, December 2016.
