That's right-Glover is serving double duty when Season 43 of the sketch comedy show airs on Saturday night.

"This Is America" is the first song Glover's released since his funky, Grammy-nominated 2016 album Awaken My Love, and it's a massive departure from it, too.

Its director, Hiro Murai, has worked with Donald Glover before on his TV show Atlanta and other Childish Gambino music videos.

Childish Gambino has been one of the biggest talents to emerge in music in recent times and he showcased that on Saturday Night Live tonight which he both hosted and performed on.

And while Donald Glover did a great job playing a range of characters many viewers were also excited to see Stormy Daniels in the SNL opening sketch.

Not everyone was a fan of the singer's psychedelic soul, funk and R&B sound, and mostly confused with the concept of Glover's alter ego.

Hosts and musicians have also been announced for the following weeks: May 12 - Amy Schumer takes over SNL with Kacey Musgraves.

Come May 24, Glover will also be in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a young Lando Calrissian.

The artist has said is next album will be his last under his stage name.

As for Glover's musical career, Childish Gambino will be heading on a 19-date North American tour.

Its video and lyrics switch between serious and amusing, making comments on American life and current issues, including police violence, racism and gun crime.

Don't miss an all-new Saturday Night Live tonight at 11:30/10:30c on NBC!
