childish gambino letterman Video: Childish Gambino performs Heartbeat on Letterman

Following a recap of skiing techniques – seriously Dave, you’ve never been to Vail? – Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, gunned through a performance of Camp favorite “Heartbeat” last night on The Late Show with David Letterman. The electro thumper started casual yet turned into an urgent rendition halfway through. Admittedly, it’s hard to grasp any edge when Glover’s wearing a cribbed Santa sweater, but hey, lyrics are lyrics, right? He’s on fire here, and if you recently snatched tickets to his Camp Gambino shindig, then you’re in for a fiery night – at least if this is any indication. Check it out below, thanks much to The Audio Perv.

Childish Gambino’s Camp – our 27th favorite album of 2011 — is currently in stores.

I’ve always hated David Letterman. Seems like he doesn’t even care about the guests at points. Was it really that hard to write down the album title beforehand? And not knowing his music at all, cutting off CG’s last line.
