Childish Gambino’s “Redbone,” the second single off of his ‘Awaken, My Love!’ album, centers on the narrative of infidelity and paranoia. The track got a prominent placement in the opening moments of Jordan Peele’s record-breaking movie Get Out, too, leading to Platinum certification.

He went to the studio not knowing what the two had in store that day.
