Awaken, My Love! was released to rave reviews (though not from everyone), and was one of the top-selling albums in the country the week it was released. Glover also just released a new virtual reality-enhanced video for the track "Me and Your Mama."
The album features a heavy funk influence, with Glover mentioning the Isley Brothers and Funkadelic as touchstones. That was apparent in the Tonight Show performance, where a shirtless Glover performed "Redbone."
You can see the performance in its funky entirety above.
Fans were thrilled to see Glover take his Awaken... material to the stage.
Some people speculated that the singer/actor/comedian/rapper's new mustache was there because of his upcoming role as Lando Calrissian.
Glover's singing received props from one of the greatest vocalists out there, Anthony Hamilton:
In addition to Glover's musical output, the multi-talented star just received a Golden Globe nomination for his work on Atlanta, the FX show he created and stars in. The show also received a nomination for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy. Glover already won a Critics' Choice Award for his acting on the show.
