In a performance guaranteed to set hormones raging, Childish Gambino gave Jimmy Fallon’s audience a treat with a shirtless rendition of Redbone that should be enough to stir the loins of anyone with red blood cells and a pulse. Taken from the new album, “Awaken, My Love!” the track tips a hat to Prince without becoming a pastiche and the rest of the album apparently wears his influence with pride too. As one rare insightful comment on YouTube puts it:
It’s like Prince came to him apparition-style and say: “Here’s the torch, boy... Take ya shirt off and carry it.”
In the light of this kind of stellar success, it seems unlikely that a “Troy and Abed in the Morning” spinoff series will be commissioned any time soon.
