Donald Glover Sued by Former Record Label Over Streaming Royalties
Donald Glover’s former record label is taking him to court over streaming royalties.
According to TMZ, Glassnote Entertainment Group has filed a lawsuit against Childish Gambino, claiming that the “This Is America” rapper has made over $700,000 in streaming money and hasn’t paid any to them.
According to the report, Glassnote paid Glover nearly $8 million in royalties and is expecting to pay him another $2 million over the next three months. The label also claims Donald demanded $1.5 million from them to resolve streaming royalty disputes.
Childish Gambino released three albums on Glassnote—2011’s Camp, 2013’s Because the Internet, and 2016’s Awaken, My Love! In January, he signed a new deal with RCA Records, where he is set to release his next album.
