Childish Gambino Drops "Swarm" EP With KIRBY To Accompany New Amazon Prime Video Series


Donald Glover has explored no shortage of creative ventures over the years, though his latest endeavour may just be one of his best. On Friday (March 17), Amazon Prime Video dropped off Swarm, the 39-year-old's new TV series that features plenty of celebrity favourites, including Paris Jackson and Billie Eilish. If that's not enough to convince you to check it out, minutes into the first episode, a raunchy sex scene between Chloe Bailey and Damson Idris has had Twitter talking non-stop.

Swarm tells the story of Dre (played by Dominique Dishback), a young woman with a dangerous obsession for a fictional pop star named Ni'jah. Throughout the episodes we see the troubled lead go to great lengths to defend her idol, voiced by singer-songwriter KIRBY. To accompany his new project, Glover and his musical collaborator shared a six-track EP today, allowing fans to live on in the chilling cinematic universe even after they're done binge-watching.

As Billboard notes, this marks Glover's first musical effort since 3.15.20, which arrived as the COVID-19 pandemic was beginning. The California native connected with Ariana Grande and 21 Savage on "Time" and "12.38" respectively. Other fan favourites from the 12-song tracklist include "Algorhythm," "19.10," and "35.31."

Of course, Swarm isn't the multi-talent's first time diving into the world of television. He's previously appeared on shows like 30 Rock, Girls, and Community. Additionally, he created and stars in FX's Atlanta alongside LaKeith Stanfield and Brian Tyree Henry. As for film credits, Glover's face has been seen in Magic Mike XXL, The Martian, and Solo: A Star Wars Story, among others.

Thus far, the new show appears to be making a positive impression on viewers. Thankfully, all seven episodes landed at the same time, filling up the weekend plans of many eager viewers. At the time of publication, Rotten Tomatoes critics have scored it at an 83%, though we're still waiting for audience reviews to start rolling in.
