Some speculation surrounds this new Childish Gambino track tonight, and it all stems from how he released it — via Twitter with the message "here @JheneAiko".
"Someone here gave all my love baby" is the cryptic hook on repeat and it may indicate Donald's true feelings for the hotly-rumored to be dating Jhene (although Gambino said recently with Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds that they're not dating).
Also, there is a fair amount of empty space; specifically once the instrumental (brilliantly) kicks up a notch after the first repetition of hooks. I'm also diggin' the influx of energy shortly after the three minute mark. h/t to the hometown producer Stefan Ponce. Whether it's finished or not, this version is already a wonderful record and if it is bolstered by singing from Aiko or rapping from Gambino or somebody else, then I'm all for that. Oddly enough, I'm all for this just being the version. Give it a listen/download above.

Lots to like on Gambino's new release off Because The Internet called "3005". He mixes his sing-song hook with some fast-paced raps delivered much like talking in the third verse especially — all to paint a picture of a scenario that's easy to follow on the first listen. I'll let it unfold for you. One more thing warranting mentioning: the added production for the second time the hook comes in — nicely done.
