According to a fan’s video, Gambino told fans, “I lost my father a couple weeks ago and I wanted to play him some of the new songs, but he didn’t want to hear them because he was like, ‘I know they’re going to be great.'”
“I’m not saying that to talk about music — I say that to talk about trust. That’s what love is. I hope you guys get to feel that kind of love,” he told the crowd.
Gambino went on to preview new music, which one fan captured and shared via Twitter.
The song will likely appear on his next album, which the rapper-singer has said will be his last.
