Last night, Donald Glover’s musical moniker Childish Gambino dropped a video for his brand new song, “This is America.”

Directed by Atlanta regular Hiro Murai, the politically-charged video focuses on Glover dancing in a chaotic warehouse. It also features a lot of violence. In the first scene, Glover casually shoots a man and later guns down gospel singers — a potential reference to the nine people killed in the Charleston church massacre in 2015.
