Gambino's too Childish to deal with 'This Is America' trolls

The track unseats a 15-week reign at the top of the chart from Drake's latest singles, "Nice For What" and "God's Plan".

The track and its politically conscious music video has left analysts decoding the hidden meanings behind some of the imagery in the clip since its release almost 10 days ago.

Billboard reports that the music video for "This Is America", which now has over 110 million views on YouTube, accounted for a whopping 68 percent of the song's total streaming.

This is America is Glover's first #1 single (he previously had a No. 12 high with "Redbone") and was on top as both the most streamed and the most purchased single of the week.

Since its May 5 release, Childish Gambino's deeply symbolic "This is America" video had the internet buzzing over its cultural significance, sparking debate and political conversation across blogs and social media. According to Nielsen Music, the track earned 65.3 million USA streams and 78,000 downloads, enough to also secure the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart. On the download side of things, "This Is America" wrapped up the week with 78,000 in sales.

A comedian has been slammed for "whitewashing" Donald Glover's "This is America" video, which depicts violence and prejudice against black people. He also stars as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming "Star Wars" film, "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
