Donald Glover: “Migos Are The Beatles Of This Generation” [VIDEO]
Donald Glover really likes the Migos. In a press conference after his big night at the Golden Globe Awards, Glover explained why the trio doesn’t get the credit they deserve.
Donald Glover immortalized the Migos when he gave them and their song “Bad And Boujee” a random shoutout during his thank you speech at the Golden Globe Awards when his show Atlanta took home the trophy for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. But he kept the love fest going later in the night when he had some great words for them during the post-show press conference.
When one reporter asked why he shouted out the group [it sounds like she pronounced it “my-gos”], Glover explained:
“I think they’re The Beatles of this generation. They don’t get a lot of respect outside of Atlanta. There’s a generation, the YouTube generation that I came up with, that are growing up with something separate from a whole group of people. Honestly, that song [“Bad and Boujee”] is just fly. There’s no better song to have sex to.”
A lot of people seem to agree. “Bad And Boujee” is Migos highest charting song currently sitting at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Migos, who also had a cameo in Atlanta, thanked Glover for the shout.
