Donald Glover - also known as Childish Gambino - has gone through several transformations throughout his career, the latest of which has seen him leaning more into making TV than music. He previously found success with FX's Atlanta, and more recently, he shared Swarm on Amazon Prime, which earned him some apparent shade from Beyoncé on her RENAISSANCE World Tour. Along with the series, the multihyphenate shared an accompanying EP that found him returning to the studio to get off a few bars.
Besides that, he also appears on Summer Walker's long-awaited CLEAR 2: Soft Life EP, earning both artists immense praise. As HipHopDX reports, that's not all Gambino has had up his sleeve as of late. For his first performance since 2019's Austin City Limits Festival, the 39-year-old took to the stage at his manager, Chad Taylor's wedding. The song requested for the happy couple's first dance was "24.19" from Glover's 3.15.20 album, which he delivered with plenty of gusto.

Childish Gambino Gives a Rare Performance
Considering they've worked together since the early 2010s, with Taylor starting out as his tour manager and eventually levelling up to the close bond they have now, it makes sense that 'bino would be willing to come out of retirement for the occasion. It remains unclear what the "Heartbeat" hitmaker has planned for the future of his music career, but after seeing how captivated he left audiences with Swarm, many likely wouldn't be upset to see him continue down the path he's on.
Interestingly, Glover isn't the only recording artist to change directions in favour of Hollywood this year. The Weeknd - who now prefers to go by Abel Tesfaye is also making similar moves with HBO's The Idol and an upcoming film he recently wrapped filming on. Unfortunately, the former received mostly negative reviews upon its debut at Cannes this week. Would you hire Childish Gambino to perform at your wedding?
