The video first arrived on Gambino's PHAROS Earth app and takes the audience right back to his PHAROS concert at Joshua Tree that went down back in September. At the end of last month, the app began to update with footage from from the show in virtual reality, so it makes sense that he would share the entire song for his album's new single.
This isn't the only virtual reality experience Gambino is offering when it comes to his latest album. On his website, there is a pre-order link for a virtual reality vinyl. It's not too clear from the description how the vinyl will incorporate VR technology, but the product won't be available until next year with the delivery date specified only as "TBD 2017."
Awaken, My Love! arrived in its entirety Dec. 2 and the heavily-funk influenced album has gotten some different reactions. Questlove liked the album so much that he woke up the legendary D'Angelo at 4:00 a.m. to tell him about it. "I thought I was getting some fresh millennial 2016 hip hop shit and I got sucker punched," Questlove wrote about the album. "Jesus Christ the co-author of #WearwolfBarmitzvah just SONNED the shit outta me. In the best way possible." Meanwhile, the Complex review of the album had a different opinion.
