Feels Like Summer Lyrics

About “Feels Like Summer”

Bino dropped the track, alongside “Summertime Magic,” on the morning of July 11, 2018: in the middle of the summer. Fittingly, the tracks were released on Spotify under the title The Summer Pack. This is the first new music from Gambino after the smash-hit, “This is America.”

With the song, Gambino covers various issues facing our world today, including the growing world population, artificial intelligence, climate change, water scarcity, air pollution, Colony collapse disorder (the dying of bees) and deforestation.

The music video was released on September 2nd. It features an animated Gambino walking down the street alongside many other rappers in animated cameos.
