Childish Gambino blessed his fans with a performance at the Governor's Ball. After not performing for the year so far, he made a very shocking announcement, he plans on retiring from music.

The "3005" singer performed in an all white outfit. He performed some of his favorable hits including ending with "Redbone." After the performance, he alluded that his next album would be his last by telling the crowd “I'll see you for the last Gambino album.”

Glover admitted to HuffingtonPost in an interview that there is only so far he can go with being a musician. He said the next album he releases, will most likely be his last album. He said, "Like I feel like there's gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk. Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at 'Atlanta' as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn't be punk anymore. As much as 'Redbone' is a punk song because it's a gospel song that's on the radio, I'm like there's only so far you can go before you just are the radio."

He also admitted while talking to HuffingtonPost that he didn't feel it was necessary to carry on with music. He made the comparison of him continuously releasing songs to bad movie sequels. He said, "There's nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we're like, 'again?' You know, I like it when something's good and when it comes back there's a reason to come back, there's a reason to do that."

Throughout his career he's released three studio albums. His debut album, Camp, followed by Because The Internet and Awaken, My Love. Whether that is his final decision or not, Donald Glover still has a handful of timeless hits.
