Donald Glover’s former record label is taking him to court over streaming royalties.
According to TMZ, Glassnote Entertainment Group has filed a lawsuit against Childish Gambino, claiming that the “This Is America” rapper has made over $700,000 in streaming money and hasn’t paid any to them.
According to the report, Glassnote paid Glover nearly $8 million in royalties and is expecting to pay him another $2 million over the next three months. The label also claims Donald demanded $1.5 million from them to resolve streaming royalty disputes.
Childish Gambino released three albums on Glassnote—2011’s Camp, 2013’s Because the Internet, and 2016’s Awaken, My Love! In January, he signed a new deal with RCA Records, where he is set to release his next album.
