February 11, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even Childish Gambino's collaborators say they aren't sure of his whereabouts on Grammy night.

Gambino won four trophies on Sunday, but the rapper whose real name is Donald Glover didn't attend.

"This Is America" won record and song of the year honors, two of the three biggest categories. Co-producer Ludwig Goransson says he tried to call Gambino after the show but it didn't go through. He says he would try again. Riley Mackin, an engineer-mixer on the song, said he last saw Gambino when they were working in the studio a couple days ago.

"He walked out and I haven't seen him since," Mackin said.

Asked if Gambino's absence was odd, Mackin said, "Everything Donald does is a little strange."
