Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, is a comedian, actor, and recording artist from Los Angeles, California. He currently stars in the FX series Atlanta and will also play the young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars movie. Awaken, My Love! is his third studio album release.

Glover's unique style on Awaken, My Love! marks a refreshing turn from his previous hip-hop work. At first, the record comes across scattershot and odd, but once you settle in you'll find yourself totally engaged. The songs flourish with intoxicating kaleidoscopic landscapes and bouncy laidback rhythms. It's an absorbing mix of funk, soul, psych rock, and R&b with vocals that sounds like this crazy fusion of Prince, Blood Orange, and Lenny Kravitz. Awaken, My Love! is just awesome in a whole lot of different ways. Some of the most memorable tracks include "Me And Your Mama," "Have Some Love," "Boogieman," and "Baby Boy." Fans will notice something different this time around, and it's so creative, exhilarating, and hypnotically wondrous that you have no choice but to give yourself over to it completely.
