Following his woke-trap song/video “This Is America,” Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover) drops two chill, breezy tunes to christen the summer season: “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer.”
Both songs are co-written and co-produced by Gambino and Ludwig Goransson (the same folks behind “This Is America” and Gambino’s single “Redbone” from his 2016 album “Awaken, My Love”), and both summer anthems feel like a glass of lemonade and an ice cream cone on a sunny day, mixed with cool breeze and a hammock.
To hold fans over while he works on his upcoming album, former One Direction member Zayn drops a cover of Beyonce’s classic self-love anthem “Me, Myself & I.” He tweeted, “Album is on the way. Got a few surprises for you too .. here’s a taster.”
Zayn’s vocals aren’t as emotive as Beyonce’s, he adds his own adlibs and a masculine twist to the lyrics while keeping the same vibe as Beyoncé’s 2003 hit from her solo debut album Dangerously in Love.
While the cover doesn’t move us, apparently, model girlfriend Gigi Hadid loved it. “I meeeaaannnnn,” she tweeted along with heart eye emojis.
