YouTube star 'whitewashes' Childish Gambino's #ThisIsAmerica with women's edit

The video, which dropped alongside the song, has been responsible for much of its success, as the Hiro Murai-directed visuals delivered stark images of dancing and violence, exploring the senselessness and commoditization of black violence in America. Drizzy has spent last 16 weeks in a row on top of the chart - 11 weeks with "God's Plan" and 4 weeks with "Nice For What". As of today, the video on YouTube stands at a whopping 108 million views.

Donald Glover is setting himself up to be the star of the summer. Her privilege also allowed her to miss the point (s) made in Glover's video which references minstrel shows, Jim Crow and the idea that guns have more rights in America than Black bodies. On the download side of things, "This Is America" wrapped up the week with 78,000 in sales. Many hailed the video as a necessary statement for the politically and socially muddy times of 2018, others decried the clip as inflammatory and asked if Glover even understood what statement he was really making with it. As it stands now, the single also holds the top spot in streaming songs with 65.3 million streams in the week ending May 10, according to Nielsen Music.

Radio isn't essential to hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 anymore.
