Childish Gambino Takes Four Grammys for “This Is America”
Childish Gambino on Sunday grabbed his fourth Grammy of the night, the coveted Record of the Year prize for best overall song, for his politically charged hit “This Is America.”
The trap gospel song packed with social commentary from Childish Gambino — the alter ego of actor and recording artist Donald Glover — beat fellow category heavyweights Drake, Cardi B and Lady Gaga to nab the award.
Childish Gambino did not attend Sunday’s ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Earlier, he won Grammys for Song of the Year (best songwriting), Best Music Video and Best Rap/Sung Performance.
