Late 2016 was the year that Childish Gambino released his 3rd full length album called Awaken, My Love! and the first track off the album, ‘Me and Your Mama’ was debuted by Zane Lowe as a Beats 1 World Record. Zane even played the song 6 times in a row, which was a record for the program.
Awaken My Love! is a sonic evolution and has been described as “R&B meets Pink Floyd,” because of its rock, funk, and soul influences. It is a groundbreaking next step following the genre blending STN MTN / Kauai mixtape and the twice-Grammy nominated rap album, because the internet. Breaking the mold and creating fully-formed, alternate worlds is a trademark of Childish Gambino, who presented Awaken My Love! first at his PHAROS festival in Joshua Tree, CA that took place in that year.
