Former “Community” star Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) recorded a really good cover of P.M. Dawn’s 1992 hit “I’d Die Without You” over at BBC Radio 1.

It’s a nice change for Glover, who’s been on plenty of hip-hop heads’ shit list’s since the release of his 2011 project “Camp,” which detailed, among other things, a very problematic Asian fetish. Marah Eakin over at the A.V. club writes that, “It’s so good, in fact, it kind of makes you wonder why Glover—if he’s off TV comedy now—doesn’t pursue more of a straight R&B sound instead of hip-hop.”
