Donald Glover will say goodbye to his music alter-ego, Childish Gambino, soon.
The “Redbone” singer announced on Saturday at Governor’s Ball Music Festival in New York City that his next album will be his last album.
“I’ll see you for the last Gambino album,” he said at the end of his performance.
During an event to promote his FX show “Atlanta” on Monday, Glover told HuffPost he’s ending his music career because he doesn’t think it’s “Necessary” anymore.
“Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at ‘Atlanta’ as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn’t be punk anymore. As much as ‘Redbone’ is a punk song because it’s a gospel song that’s on the radio, I’m like t’s only so far you can go before you just are the radio.”
In December, the singer/rapper released his most recent funkadelic studio album “Awaken, My Love!,” which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B charts.
Since starting his music career in 2008, the Grammy-nominated artist has released seven mixtapes, two EPs and three studio albums.
Though the multitalented Atlanta native didn’t reveal when fans can expect his final album, he’s staying very busy in the meantime.
