After dropping his politically-charged track “This Is America,” Childish Gambino lightens the mood with two new songs — “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer.”
On “Summertime Magic,” which he co-produced with Ludwig Göransson, Gambino compares his lover to the warm season.
“You feel like summertime / You took this heart of mine / You’ll be my valentine in the summer, in the summer / You are my only one / Just dancin’ having fun / Out in the shining sun of the summer, of the summer,” he sings on the feel-good track.
“Feels Like Summer” is a reggae-inspired track that was also co-produced by Gambino and Göransson. On the midtempo groove, Gambino describes how his lover makes him feel like summer.
“Every day gets hotter than the one before / Running out of water, it’s about to go down,” he sings.
“Summertime Magic” and “Feel Like Summer” were released as part of Glover’s Summer Pack. Both songs are expected to appear on Gambino’s forthcoming album that will release later this year on Wolf+Rothstein/RCA Records.
On September 6, Gambino will kick off his North American fall tour in Atlanta with special guest Rae Sremmurd. The tour will hit major cities including Washington, D.C., Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, before wrapping up on September 30 in Vancouver.
