Sunday night (Jan. 28) at the 60th Grammy Awards, Donald Glover who is also known as Childish Gambino took the esteemed stage and gave a stellar performance, performing “Terrified” with J.D. McCrary-who co-stars with Glover as young Simba in the 2019 Lion King and soon after accepted his first Grammy award for best traditional R&B performance for his hit single “Redbone.”
Post the prestigious ceremony, Glover revealed to the media that after his upcoming project which will be his fourth studio album, he plans to retire the Childish Gambino identity. This means, his upcoming fourth studio album, which is currently in the making will be his final music project.
While admiring his profound Grammy award, Glover proclaimed to the press, “I stand by that,” after his recent claims about retiring came into query. Basically, Glover is standing strong on his decision to retire from music and is apparently ready to unleash the new chapter of his journey as an entertainer. “I’m really appreciative of this. I’m making another project right now, but I like endings, I think they’re important to progress,” said Glover.
The Because the Internet rapper went further on to explain his own testimony on why it is necessary to bring great things to an end. “I think if a lot of things had death clauses in them, we wouldn’t have a lot of problems in the world, to be honest. I think ending are good because they force things to get better.”
Just last week, Gambino announced his partnership with RCA records, confirming he will release new music in 2018. But, apparently, this RCA deal is not a lengthy one, but will certainly be instrumental in this chapter of Childish Gambino’s career.
