Awaken My LoveWith each album, Donald Glover and Childish Gambino edge ever closer to becoming the ultimate superbeing – soon enough, he’ll ditch the pseudonym altogether.

Boogieman sounds like it wouldn’t be out of place as the intro on Glover’s new show Atlanta, and the evolution and soulful progression of truth only continues on Baby Boy. If you’re on the hunt for the furthest departure from 3005, you’ll wanna check out the groovy, almost urban backbeats of Me and Your Mama – the lead single, and probably the rhythmic outlier on the album. If you’ve come to “Awaken, My Love!” expecting Because The Internet era Gambino, you will be left wanting, but not disappointed – this fresh, funky direction is a welcome one.

“Awaken, My Love!” is out now via Universal.
