If you’re a Donald Glover fan, or just looking for a new song to take the place of “Marvin’s Room” on your “Why Did She Leave Me?” mixtape, then you’ve already seen Childish Gambino‘s new music video for “Heartbeat.” No doubt you’re also wondering about the identity of that mysterious beauty he’s driving around.
Her name is Adesuwa Aighewi. An exotic mix of Nigerian, Chinese and Thai descent, she’s been in the modeling industry since 2008 and done campaigns for brands like Target and Guess. It’s also worth noting that the chemistry she shares with Gambino could be due to her chemistry degree from the University of Maryland.
The major tongue action in the backseat of that vintage Mercedes didn’t stop at the video shoot. Aighewi was Gambino’s date to the Grammys on Sunday. We don’t know if they’re dating for sure, but they look damn good together.
