Tamia’s “I’m So Into You” is a classic 90’s R&B song about being in the throes of something with somebody you can’t deny. Tamia’s vocals penetrate as she describes those initial indescribable feelings of love, which have helped give the song lasting power.
Maybe Donald Glover, better known as Childish Gambino, is smitten with a young gal, or maybe he just wants to prove he’s a dog who knows many tricks, but the all around Renaissance man paid tribute to Tamia by covering her love ballad.
Backed by a keyboardist, guitarist and seasoned with his own finger snaps, Gambino flexes his vocal prowess while staying true to the original. After seeing the video, commentator Manning Fell offered Gambino the best back handed compliment one can receive.
“F–k Donald Glover, man. He has way too much talent for an individual human.”
Peep the video below.
