It is is here! Actor turned rapper, Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) lets loose the official “Heartbeat” music video earlier than we previously said, which is a pleasant surprise as it was meant to be released on Valentines Day. I’m certainly not complaining, this is one of my favourite songs off his album Camp and will definitely be replayed on this end.
Childish Gambino spoke on his album and the Kyle Newacheck directed video with MTV (who has worked with Donald previously with an episode of his show Community) explaining the concept and what it means.
“The biggest compliment I can give it is that I like it more than everything else I’ve done, I think it’s a cohesive piece, and I wanted to tell a whole story with it. Hopefully, the whole album is like a book or a novel where [there's] a through line.”
“Heartbeat” is simply a chapter in that story, and its video will be reflective. “This is kinda like the mood of the song,” “I wouldn’t say it’s so much a video as much as it is just a mood.”
