Variety Over Labor Day Weekend — the unofficial end of the summer — Childish Gambino dropped an animated video for his song “Feels Like Summer,” one of two seasonally-themed songs he released back in July. While not as densely packed with signifiers as his powerful and politically loaded “This Is America” clip, the new one is filled with recent hip-hop references, including Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott — who were recently embroiled in a controversy over Billboard No. 1 calculations — playing with blocks, A$AP Rocky and Solange playing tug of war with The Weeknd, Future stealing Drake’s bicycle, and most notably, Kanye West crying in a “Make America Great Again” hat while Michelle Obama hugs him. All of this and much more — look out for Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, 21 Savage, Oprah, Will Smith, Lil Uzi Vert and even late artists like XXXTentacion, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston — takes place while a cartoon Gambino strolls through a traditional summertime scenes.
