Childish Gambino is hitting all the right bars with the release of tracks from his upcoming album, Because the internet. “Melrose” moves with the current as the triple-threat performer croons in falsetto over slow, airy piano sounds.

However, the lovebuzz takes a backseat to the standout track, which solidifies the rapper as one with depth and versatility.
