Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) channeled the legendary pop icon Prince for his sweet, soulful performance of the song “Redbone.”
Glover stood on a darkened stage illuminated by deep red lights and blue lasers, as he crooned in a high, yearning falsetto, mixing in some Al Green soul on the Awaken, My Love!
The album debuted at No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart (dated Dec. 24), moving 72,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 8, according to Nielsen Music. “Redbone” also reached a new peak, re-entering the Hot R&B Songs chart at No. 8 after originally landing on the Dec. 11 chart at No. 11.
