“It’s not America. That is not America. In fact that looks more like an ISIS video in a Syrian warehouse than anywhere in America. Here’s the thing, I believe the reason Gambino won this award was because it’s perceived as anti-gun. In my humble opinion, the song isn’t that good. And my son forces me to listen to Top 40 stations and I could recite far too many of those songs word for word. I’ve never heard of This Is America. Which means the Grammy folks like it, the people didn’t. If the people loved it, the radio stations would play it every ten minutes, trust me I know.” – NRA TV host Grant Stinchfield, on today’s webcast.
Childish Gambino’s This Is America debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart in May 2018 and has been certified as double-platinum by the RIAA. It currently has a combined 800 million plays on YouTube and Spotify. At the Grammy Awards it won Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Rap Performance, and Best Music Video.
