The dude just pulled double-duty hosting and performing as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, his critically-lauded FX comedy Atlanta wrapped up its stellar second season, he released a music video for "This Is America" that's since gone viral, and he's playing the coolest cat in the galaxy in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Glover admitted to Kimmel that's he's avoided the social media platform for over a week now, logging off right before he dropped his "This Is America" video and hosted SNL. The video has sparked endless discussion about the meaning of its symbolic imagery, with avid viewers poring over its background details for clues. It's bad for me.

Jess Glynne is another high new entry with I'll Be There at Number 16, while after 15 weeks on chart, girl group M.O's Bad Vibe with Lotto Boyz & Mr Eazi finally earns a Top 20 slot, up two to Number 20.

"More like, I see one negative thing and I track that person down", says Glover.

You know, I hear some of those same critiques. "That baby isn't even that cute!'"

The "This Is America" video, directed by Hiro Murai, has already hit over 75 million views on YouTube.

Through several scenes, the video deals with race, gun violence and police brutality.

Host Jimmy Kimmel noted that Glover is now a hot topic in pop culture, thanks to his role in Star Wars, his hosting gig on SNL, the airing of the season finale of hit series Atlanta and the impact of his video. He talked to Kimmel about landing the role as Lando, his experience filming the movie and bringing his "Star Wars" superfan father on set.
