Actor and musician Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, shared he has been making new music. 

Childish Gambino’s Comeback Coming Soon

Actress Laverne Cox interviewed Donald Glover before Tuesday’s Golden Globes. The “Orange is the New Black” star questioned him about any music in the future. Donald confirmed that he’s been working in the studio.

“I’m making music right now,” Glover said. “I’m in the studio, I’ve been bringing people in, like secret people, and working on little things. But I’ve been making it for fun right now. But soon, something will happen. I promise something will happen,” Glover added.

In Glover’s career as a rapper/singer, he has won five Grammy Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, and two BET Hip-Hop Awards. All four of his studio albums have reached the top ten on Billboard’s Rap/R&B charts, with the highest topping albums being 2013’s Because The Internet and 2016’s Awaken My Love!

Close To EGOT Status

In 2018, Glover also dropped a controversial music video for “This Is America.” He was later sued by another rapper for saying he stole the song’s concept from him.

Glover’s success on screen has earned him an eight-figure deal with Amazon Studios. It almost matched his music as he has won two Emmys, two Golden Globes, and five Writers Guild of America awards for writing for shows such as 30 Rock and Atlanta. With a Tony and Oscar award missing from his resume, Glover is close to reaching the special EGOT status.
