The dreamy bop sparkling in steel drums “Feels Like Summer” finally gets a visual and it isn’t any less magical. The video released on Sept. 1 via Childish Gambino’s Youtube features animated versions of a variety of personalities. Janelle Monaé hits the boards as Michelle Obama gives weeping Kanye a comforting hug, amongst others.
Quite reminiscent of early 2000’s cartoons with the sultry filter and 2D animation, the visual hits close to home. If you’re a hip-hop enthusiast or have indulged in your fair share of MTV growing up, the video can be a real tearjerker. Either way, it’s groundbreaking. As usual. If anything, the thought-provoking concepts are what draw us to Childish Gambino’s visuals anyway.
