However, now the tracks have mysteriously disappeared.
Rapper 21 Savage was featured on the song “Vibrate,” while pop superstar Ariana Grande and “The Other Side” hitmaker SZA make appearances.
The 12-track LP also features “Feels Like Summer,” which was released in 2018 under Glover’s former alter ego Childish Gambino, which he later announced he was retiring.
The stream was accompanied by a four-panel artwork depicting the world in chaos, which comes amid the global coronavirus pandemic.
Fans were also invited to type in a text, which suggested he was seeking recommendations for the title for the stream, which just had the name Donald Glover Presents — the same as his Adidas range.
The musician and actor had said he’d planned to release one more album before giving up his Childish Gambino moniker.
