Author Notes

This Is America.  Don't catch you slipping, now.
 
This single was released by Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover, yes, THAT Donald Glover, from the hit NBC series Community) in May of 2018.
 
This song was inspired by all of the tragedies against black people these past few years, culminating in a viral music video that goes even further into criticizing and parodying several figures, all while critics and fans STILL continue to find new meanings in it.
 
Song-wise, the highlight for this song is vocals, with choir sections interspersed between unpitched rapping.
 
SPECIAL THANKS TO:
FUGGNUTZ: For recording dryvox!
Maotico: For revising my harmony charts, as well as fixing up keys!
 
CHANGELOG:
 
v2 (09-18-18):
Fixed lyrics capitalization
Added intro yeahs to solo vocals
Changed "America, I just checked my following list" part to talkies

In my eyes, yes.  There's karaoke multitracks, and in the next couple of days will also have a custom venue.

well you authored it. how do the notes compare? drum track etc? the other one has blue notes for some of the open hats but also the cymbals are in triplest and there are parts that run through with no break.
