Best Childish Gambino Songs

Donald Glover is a writer, actor, comedian, and rapper (just to name a few.) His popularity is increasing as word spreads about how insanely talented he is. I made this list because I feel there are a lot of people who care about his music like me, and his music deserves to be discussed. The order is definitely up for debate.

From Camp. Others would say that this should be higher; I don't think he really tells a good story in this one, just raps about his love for women with with jokes thrown in. Though there's no denying the effect that his Casey Anthony line can have on anyone and everyone who listens to it.

First one I heard and still the best in my opinion. High energy, great punch lines, gym mix perfection. Good music. #1

Even people who don't listen to Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) know this song... - danyelle444

The first song I ever heard by Gambino and the only thing I will ever thank Vevo for! every time this comes up a party and people are like "what is this crap? " I just guard the stereo until this song finishes, singing along the whole time!

This song is amazing in how intense and sincere it feels. Not to mention the ending which is hilarious

Personally think this is his best

6That Power

This song is a good example of why Childish Gambino is my favorite rapper, period. He can add musically amazing beats behind his rap, he can sing, and in this song, he can even just sort of tell a story and the song is great.

Just a beast song, best outro ever. Ties up the album perfectly! Good lyrically but that beat is next level!

The first part of the song is great all by itself, but the outro/story at the end ties the whole Camp album together.

7Break (AOTL)

Look up the remix with kendrick and hopsin! So dope!

From Camp. Personally, I think this is his third best song but I know the support isn't there yet, so I put it at #5. This is my pump-up song before anything important, and it has some of his best one-liners.

A slow, smooth song that still fits gambino's style

Been a Gambino fan forever, but this song is #1

How is this not on the list?

Love his singing voice

10The Worst Guys

This song has a mad beat and childish also spits a few bars at quick pace, it also has some hilarious punch lines. It includes my other favourite rapper, chance the rapper.

The Contenders

11Outside

Seriously guys, the meaning of this song, the one-liners, the wit, just Oh my god, the whole thing is perfect. Donald

From Camp. Tells the story of his childhood, growing up the only black kid in his school, or the whitest black kid in his other school. Amazing chorus that really sets the tone for his whole album.

"He's saving up so we can get our own place
In the projects, man that sounds fancy to me
They called me fat nose, my mom say you handsome to me. "

12Telegraph Ave

One of his best songs that people don't know. great song to cruise to at night

The beat of this one is killer; reminds me of some 8-bit arcade games mixed with beautiful piano music. At the same time, this is one of the easiest to listen to as it's quite smooth and relaxing, with great lyrics.
