Childish Gambino absolutely nails his performance of "Redbone" on 'Fallon'

Pitch perfect.


Unless you managed to get a spot in the crowd at Childish Gambino's three-day PHAROS experience in California's desert earlier this year, then you likely haven't seen him perform live any of the material from his recently-released Awaken, My Love!—save for the low-quality, 360º-degree video he released of "Me and Your Mama."

But he's finally on the promo circuit now and has shared his music with the masses via a performance of "Redbone" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Shirtless and shiny pants'ed, Gambino swathed himself, his band, and his background singers in a series of color-changing lights and intersecting lasers. And if you thought some vocal pitch-shifting was used on this space-funk groove, let his on-point falsetto and sex symbol-like wails debunk that immediately.
