Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover aka maybe the hottest name in entertainment at the moment, performed his only public concert of the year on Saturday, helping to close out night two of Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City. The rapper tore through a handful of songs from his latest Awaken, My Love! album in addition to some older material, but it was an announcement during the performance of “Redbone” that had fans buzzing.
As the 33-year-old singer wrapped up his 19-song set across the field from where Phoenix was headlining the main stage, he revealed that there may only be one last album under the Childish Gambino moniker left to be released.
“I love you New York!” the rapper can be heard saying near the end of the video above. “Thank you. You’re in my heart. I’ll see you for the last Gambino album.”
Fans shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that he may not have a lot left in the Childish Gambino tank. There’s probably a calculated reason that his equally famous identity (Donald Glover) is taking the year off from touring in support of his alter-ego’s latest LP. In addition to continuing his hugely successful Atlanta television show, the actor also plans on voicing Simba in an upcoming remake of The Lion King, and taking over the famous sci-fi role of Lando Calrissian in an upcoming Star Wars spinoff film.
