John kicks off the new week with a review on the newest "Saturday Night Live", hosted by Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino.

It may be hard to keep up with all of the former "Community" star's releases, so here's a breakdown of Glover's very busy Saturday.

Like "A Quiet Place", except it's way harder to keep quiet as Kanye West's Trump-supporting tweets keep popping up.

The video is expertly choreographed and directed sucking you in with a cheerful folk song before deeptoned bass pulses and Gambino's self-aware verses take over.

The performance, which echoed numerous elements in the disturbing and violent music video found a shirtless Glover highlighted by laser beams while children in school uniforms danced. In that sketch, he asks the big question: "Where the hell are all the black people in space?"

The move was meant to help the brand diversify and adapt to a changing market that had led to decreased sales. Those guitars appear on countless classic country, rock, blues and other records around the world.

This month, the next movie in the film series will come out featuring Han Solo in his formative years. Black Panther actor Daniel Kaluuya, who also received an Oscar nomination for his role in Jordan Peele's Get Out, introduced Glover for "This Is America".

This Is America marks Gambino's first new piece of music since his Grammy-nominated album Awaken, My Love! was released at the end of 2016.

In fact, Glover's opening monologue on this week's SNL poked fun at his "good at everything". Glover's award-winning drama Atlanta is seeing solid viewership in its second season on FX. Later, he guns down a gospel choir in a scene eerily reminiscent of the 2015 terrorist attack at a Charleston church that killed nine people attending a bible study.

It was accompanied by an absolutley wild, strangely violent, yet captivating music video. Gambino raps, "This is America / Don't catch you slippin" up / Look how I'm livin' now / Police be trippin' now / Yeah, this is America / Guns in my area / I got the strap / I gotta carry "em".
