Donald Glover was Arsenio's guest last night and he took to his couch to premiere the newest track off Because The Internet called "Shadows". He recites the first verse right next to Arsenio, not moving from his interview below until halfway through the song where he joins the band. I like the sentiment towards a new breakup and the plea to talk with her again that becomes the theme of the song. The breakdown at the end was of high contrast to the rest of the song and I was honestly lukewarm on that. I think the studio version and more listens may make me come around fully though. Another nice track overall as this album is shaping up to be one I'll be buying on December 10th with the quality of these previews.
Alas, here's the interview with Arsenio as Glover talks about the Instagram notes, elaborating on a couple lines Arsenio asks him about (like the Tyrese one), why he's leaving Community, and what he wants in the future (totally agree with him on coding and 3D Printing...) Enjoy!
The wave of big-name emcees to come through Arsenio's new show continues tonight. Yesterday was Kendrick Lamar, tonight: Big Sean. He performs one of my favorite tracks of the summer: "Fire" above, which really jumps with the live band behind him. Seriously, those drums. After "Fire", the second performance is his current single "Beware", sans guest stars, but another one of my favorites off Hall Of Fame. Great to see Arsenio back as well; I'd be remiss not to mention that too. Watch above ICYMI!
Oh! And style points go to Sean for that eyewear and the D-Town ear plugs.
