Donald Glover Teams Up with Beck for a New Childish Gambino Track

Donald Glover just released a new song under his hip hop moniker Childish Gambino called "Silk Pillow." It's notable because it was produced by and features rapping by famous Scientologist Beck.

In any case, you can listen to a stream of the track right here on Glover's website and decide for yourself.
