When Childish Gambino's "Awaken, My Love!" album dropped last week, the initial reactions included praise, confusion, disappointment, and excitement. The album was a sharp turn into left field—a funky, soulful, theatrical project full of sounds and styles foreign to Gambino's early rap-centric work. Based off the initial reactions, it seemed as if "Awaken, My Love!" was destined to be one of the most polarizing releases of 2016.
