This weekend was nothing short monumental for Donald Glover. The jack–many-trades finally nabbed a hosting slot on Saturday Night Live (May 5), while debuting two new tracks as the musical guest under his rapper alias, Childish Gambino. Adele, among countless others, is a big fan.
Along with its television performance, Glover released a jaw-dropping video for “This is America” Saturday. For those who've somehow yet to watch, the clip serves as a startling four-minute statement regarding violence and gun control in the Land the Free, accumulating massive praise. Even from across the globe in her British homeland, Adele couldn't make it through her birthday Instagram caption without expressing amazement.
The “Hello” singer tagged her compliments onto the end a lengthy caption in which she thanked her loved ones for throwing a Titanic-themed party for her “Dirty 30th” birthday. “Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to fer us so much greatness on so many platforms,” she wrote. “I adore you.”
Adele joins the club with many fellow musicians who've declared their love for 'Bino, including Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe and Hozier. Although she mentioned in her caption she's “not sure what she's] going to do for the next 30 years,” we can imagine blasting “This is America” on repeat might be on her to-do list.
