Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) has his first No. 1 song.

Drake's Nice For What drops to two on the new countdown, while the rapper's God's Plan holds at three, and Post Malone's Psycho, and Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's Meant to Be also dip to round out the new top five.

Billboard reports that the music video for "This Is America", which now has over 110 million views on YouTube, accounted for a whopping 68 percent of the song's total streaming.

"This Is America" will handily top Childish's other highest topping song, "Redbone", of his last album, Awaken, My Love!
