Childish Gambino Covers An R&B Classic for Like A Version

Is there anything Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino can’t do? This guy is a multi-talented rapper, singer, actor, writer, comedian… he’s been nominated for two Grammy awards, and even wrote some episodes of 30 Rock. And now, for triple j’s “Like A Version” series, he’s covered the seductive R&B classic “So Into You” by Tamia, staying close to the original. Check out his version.

Currently down under on the festival circuit of Listen Out, actor/writer/rapper Childish Gambino visited the Triple J studios a couple of days ago for an interview and a live performance.

Whilst he also performed a live version of ‘Sober’ (which you can watch below), the performance that has been making the rounds on the interwebs is his cover of Tamia’s 1998 classic slow-jam ‘So Into You’.

Fabolous, who?

Childish Gambino gives the song a refreshing makeover. What do you think?

Peep the original tune here, and be sure to watch his performance of ‘Sober’ below too.
