Childish Gambino – Heartbeat Official Video

Yesterday evening, this video 'HeartBeat" by Childish Gambino premiered on BET 106 & Park. I HEART the simplicity of this video! Sexy and refreshing. Instantly, the video felt so Miguel-esque. I also felt a bit of Pharrell and Kanye in his delivery of his rhymes.

Strangely, at the time of the premiere of the Childish Gambino video I was searching for Miguel's music on Youtube. Simply because I had posted a video by a new female rapper Azealia Banks on FB. (Soon will post here now that I've mentioned her. 'Though her song is raunchy as hell but I am a fan. I should probably call this Music Saturday). Anyway a friend asked if he could steal (as in share) Azealia's song, also asking if I listened to Miguel's entire album. A suggestion given to me a few weeks ago that I had not yet fulfilled.

... And even stranger, earlier in the day, I remembered seeing Miguel perform, "Lotus Flower Bomb"  with D.C rapper Wale on the Wendy Williams Show. Miguel changed up the way he sang those notes. LOVED IT. I can't tell you how much I love Wale's "Lotus FLower Bomb" except for "Let me teach you all the sounds of love. Ahhhh, ayyyyy, eeeeee, ahh ohh ooo!" LOL.

By evening and the premiere of "HeartBeat", I had watched Miguel's "Sure Thing" video again.  And it's hard not to notice the girl in that video. She is fine!  My friend went on to say, and I have to agree, "Yep. Miguel definitely owns his style ... and his selection for his videos is impeccable. :-) ... unlike dat boy Drake, can't do a video to save his life though his songs are tight."

So I started to Google, Childish Gambino ... 

Actor-turned-rapper Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) is a comedy writer for the show 30 Rock with Tina Fey. Late last year, in an interview with Rocsi and Terrence, he spoke about doing some collaborations and admits that he loves Miguel. He has even made it to the stage of the Late Show with David Letterman.
