Here Are the Rappers Who Contributed to Childish Gambino's "This Is America"

Donald Glover goes shirtless for This Is America video and gets over 10 million views in 24 hours

Hiro Murai, Glover's frequent collaborator on Atlanta, directed the video.

The video has garnered more than 13million views on YouTube since its release barely 24hours ago, making it one of the biggest first day views this year.

Director, actor, producer and musician Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, has given his chart-topping new music video a distinctly South African twist, performing the local dance, "Gwara Gwara".

With "This is America, " pop culture's most important multi-hyphenate confronts many issues now facing "the land of the free and home of the brave" - racism, gun violence and police brutality.

It's a confronting look at the horrifying gun violence ravaging the United States, and the ease at which it's ignored.

Everybody is talking about Childish Gambino's music video "This Is America", which tackles heavy political issues, particularly gun violence.

After a revisiting the record a few times, we've pinpointed some of the lines in which Gambino is assisted.

This repeated exposure to acts of violence - even when that exposure comes vicariously through the media - has had a numbing effect on Americans.

According to The Rolling Stone, "This Is America" features vocals from " Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Migos' Quavo as well as Rae Sremmurd's Slxm Jimmy and BlocBoy JB".

Numbers of spectators also delved into the hidden meanings of images that came up in the background that many may not have noticed due to what was happening in the foreground of the music video. It's worth noting that when Glover performed "This Is America" on Saturday Night Live - pretty much around the same time as the video dropped - Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya introduced him.
