"Bonfire" is absolutely over-the-top...but in a good way. Like the title of the album this track is from, this song is unapologetically campy. It's easy to laugh while listening to the outrageous references. But at the same time, it also has some of the most genius wordplay Gambino has ever put out. For example, the line, "my d--- is like an accent mark, it's all about the over e's" is a triple entendre: it alludes to foreign language, musical notation, and sexual anatomy all in thirteen words.
The animated music video is the perfect accompaniment to the song, featuring an animated version of Gambino walking down a street. Although there are multiple celebrity cameos in the song, the most notable part of the music video to me is the glaringly warm colors reflecting the issues the song is about.
The song became a popular internet meme, following its re-entry to the Billboard charts, consisting of various remixes of the song to fit a certain theme. During a concert in June 2017, Glover acknowledged the meme onstage before leading into a performance of the song.
This track is one of the most overlooked on the album. It starts strong and finishes even stronger. While being one of the slower songs on the album, it has a great feel. JD McCray also nailed singing the outro. 9/10
Glover released the 4-minute opus under his musical alter-ego Childish Gambino, after performing the song on NBC's "Saturday Night Live." It launched a storm of conversation on social media and quickly became one of the most trending videos on YouTube.

When we think of standout experimental songs, most people understandably think of the sixties. It was a time of tremendous change, and that got reflected in the music. But music is constantly evolving, and experimental songs come in all shapes and sizes. Here are some of the best experimental songs of all time.
Released on his album Furious 7 in 2017, See You Again is one of the most appreciated actual hip hop song performed by the American rapper Wiz Khalifa. The artist featuring this title, Charlie Puth, is more connected to the repertoire of piano pop songs and adds a touch of freshness to the music. The cover of this rap song on piano is really beautiful and is quite easy to play, even for beginners.
Puerto Rican rapper and songwriter Bad Bunny was the most streamed artist on Spotify this year.
