I don't like rap much but I like this song and video. Catchy, solid beat, intriguing message.

Would love to hear the DB's thoughts on the song.

Not a fan of rap, but this isn't bad.

Plus, the resulting memes have been gold.

The best was buzzfeed telling people not to make memes from the video. Obviously that backfired.

The song doesn't make much sense without the video. 3/8 on the vamps scale.

Best thing to come out of this is all the righteous indignation from the usual suspects over memes of the video.

Atlanta is a good series.
The #1 song in the country
Lead role in what will be one of the biggest movies of the year.

Glover is definitely on one as they say.

He is one of the more talented entertainers out there for sure. Very diverse in his talents too, as you pointed out.

Mind-blowing.

Waiting on pins and needles for the Weird Al Yankovic version.

It's fascinating how big this has gotten. When was the last time a song/music video had this kind of buzz around it?

I saw a black person and didn't click the play button. After reading the responses, I made the right choice.

Havent heard it on the radio yet...weird for an alleged number one song.

Honestly think it is over rated. Lyrics arent what i would call high quality.

Video is ok i guess. Really think it is over blown. I like Donald Glover a lot but this really wasnt his best work.

Exactly how I feel about it. Definitely not one of his better songs.

This time of year during breeding season I drive quite a bit. In my car I listen to music on my phone but the dually I use only has AM/FM.

Also I am close enough to Austin and get their radio stations. They have a few really good stations.

What constitutes a #1 song these days includes many different aspects. Not sure how important radio play is, especially when you take into account that many of today's tunes cannot be played due to explicit lyrics. FYI, it debuted #1 with 78,000 downloads sold and 65.3 million US streams in the first week. Its music video accounted for 68% of the song's streaming total.

Speaking of radio, I have Sirius but havent paid for it in a while. Not sure who is paying but I havent been charged. I have a used car so maybe the previous owner is getting billed but doesnt notice? I think the product sucks for music purposes. Literally seems like it is just a playlist of songs on loop.
