Childish Gambino – Sober
Childish Gambino or as most people my recognize him Donald Glover, has been making waves in the hip hop scene lately with the release of his album Because the Internet. However with this song he makes a huge style change from lyrical rhymes to a more soulful vocals. This reminds me of a lot of the early RB and 80s pop hits with a simple bass and smooth melody carrying the song while the hook of the song is sung over and over. This departure of from his more traditional rap style is a welcome change and will diffidently resonate with a large audience. Sober could be compared to Pharrel William’s happy in that hey both a have a hip hop artist displaying a high vocals over a soft track and they are very likely to get stuck in your head.
