Atlanta Wins Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy at the 2017 Golden Globes
Could a new Childish Gambino and Migos song be in the works? After giving Atlanta hip-hop trio Migos — made up of members Offset, Takeoff and Quavo — a surprising shout-out during the 74th Golden Globes Sunday night, rapper/actor Donald Glover hinted that fans could be getting a collaboration with him and the rap group in the not-so-distant future.
Following the awards show, a TMZ photographer caught up with Glover (who uses the stage name Childish Gambino) outside the Chateau Marmont in Beverly Hills and quizzed him on whether he was trying to do a song with the “Bad & Boujee” rappers. “I have to,” Glover could be heard saying at one point in the video.
The TMZ photographer then questioned Glover’s brother, Stephen Glover, about the possible collaboration. “It’s happening,” Stephen teased, adding that they haven’t hit the studio with Migos yet.
This isn’t the first time Glover has hinted at a music collaboration with Migos. Two years ago he tweeted that he reached out to the group’s manager about working together. “Waiting to hear back,” he posted, via Hot New Hip Hop.
“I’d like to thank the Migos — not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like, that’s the best song ever,” he said.
According to Billboard, Glover explained backstage that he gave the group a shout-out because he feels they are the “Beatles of this generation.”
“They don’t get a lot of respect, I think, outside of Atlanta,” he said. “Not that they don’t get respect, but there’s a generation, sort of like the YouTube generation that I kind of came up with. There’s a generation of kids that are growing up on something that’s completely separate from a whole group of people.”
He continued: “Honestly, that song is just fly. There’s no better song to have sex to.” Following the awards show, Migos re-tweeted a video of Glover mentioning them in his speech, writing “Thank you Donald Glover!”
