Donald Glover Confirms He's Working On Final Album As Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino

Last night Donald Glover won a grammy as Childish Gambino, and we couldn’t be happier for him. After grabbing the award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Redbone”, he answered some questions touching on the statements he made in the past that he plans on retiring his Childish Gambino moniker after this next album he's working on.

After he previously stated his next album will be his last, he went on re-affirm his previous remarks:

“I stand by that. I’m really appreciative of this. I’m making another project right now, but I like endings. I think they’re important to progress. 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 endings are good because they force things to get better.” 

He just recently signed a deal with RCA records and is working on new music so we can’t wait to hear what he’s working on although it is bittersweet he plans on this being his last album as Childish Gambino. Maybe he'll take a different direction with music and release under a new name? We'll see what happens. Stay tuned for more info and be sure to check out his Grammy performance as well. Enjoy!
