Childish Gambino has dropped his latest video and, much like This Is America, it’s got fans talking.

Unlike his last hit though, the video for Feels Like Summer doesn’t feature any violence and isn’t being dissected by people looking for a message.

Instead, it’s the impressive number of animated cameos from Donald Glover’s fellow musicians that has excited people.

Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, a crying Kanye West and plenty more appear in the video, which was illustrated by Justin Richburg.

Appearances from 21 Savage, Lil Pump, Trippie Redd, Kodak Black and the Migos kick off the video.

But the celebrity cameos that come a bit later on are the ones that have been talked about the most.

Travis Scott ruins Nicki Minaj’s day

It’s been pretty well documented that things haven’t been going to plan for Nicki Minaj recently.

And one of the people she’s blamed for that is Travis Scott.

When Nicki’s album Queen failed to get to number one in the US on its first week of release, despite strong sales, she claimed that Travis Scott and girlfriend Kylie Jenner were using their baby Stormi to help promote Astroworld – which sat at number one.

Unfortunately for Nicki, things don’t seem much improved in this fictional world, with Travis making her toy house fall apart.

Drake’s stolen bike

One scene in the video sees Drake chasing after Future, who’s riding away mischievously on a bike.

Your guess is as good as ours on this one.

Kanye West has hardly been out of the headlines this year, with many feeling like he has questions to answer following some controversial tweets and outbursts.

He partially answered those recently, but it seems he’s still sad in Donald’s cartoon world.

Luckily for him, Michelle Obama was on hand to share some love.

Some people felt quite moved by the scene.

While others were just a little confused.

Beyonce and Donald Glover are set to appear together in the live-action remake of The Lion King – but before that they’ve both appeared in this surreal video.

Queen Bey’s wearing a shirt in tribute to Chicago drill rapper Fredo Santana, who died unexpectedly at the beginning of the year.

Lil Wayne and Pusha T historically don’t get on, and given Drake’s past beef with Meek it’s fair to say Weezy and the Philadelphia rapper probably wouldn’t be the best of friends either.

But they’re united here, as two people who appear to be Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd set upon them with super soakers.

Rae Sremmurd were no match for J. Cole’s hose pipe though.

Elsewhere in the video were people thought to be Rihanna, Michael Jackson and Lil Yachty, as well as Solange, SZA and Janelle Monae.

And it’s fair to say people enjoyed seeing them all.
