Childish Gambino's "This Is America" Debuts At No. 1

Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino scores his first No. 1 on the Hot 100 with "This Is America."

Via Fader:

"This Is America" dethrones Drake from the top spot in the process. Drizzy has sat at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 15 weeks, with "God's Plan" occupying the slot for 11 weeks, while "Nice for What" claimed the top of charts for four weeks. This means it's Glover's highest charting song as Gambino, beating out the four-times platinum "Redbone," which peaked at No. 12.

The track is also at the top of the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts. For the week ending May 10, per Nielsen, "This Is America" bagged more than 65 million domestic streams. Roughy 68 percent of that total comes solely from the much-discussed music video. On the download side of things, "This Is America" wrapped up the week with 78,000 in sales.
