Childish Gambino Throws It Back on ‘Sober’: Listen

Childish Gambino‘s new song takes him back a couple decades.

The song, “Sober,” was released onto the rapper’s Soundcloud page yesterday (Sept. 14). It finds Donald Glover departing a bit from his usual rhyming, trading them for a smooth R&B croon.

“Sober” features ’80s-esque synths of varying sounds and the occasional electric guitar beneath Gambino’s higher register, which sings that “now that it’s over, I’ll never be sober.”

Briefly, the song veers into more abrasive territory, seemingly setting up Gambino for a quick rap verse. But after the quick sidestep, it jumps back on course to showcase Glover the singer.
