Donald Glover blessed us in 2016 with his breakout FX series, Atlanta. Then, he really touched our souls at this year's Golden Globes. In Glover's acceptance speech for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy, the star and show's creator thanked the "black folks" from the show's premise in addition to hip hop group Migos for their song, “Bad and Boujee”. As millions anticipated what he would say next, Donald noted as millions watched, "That's the best song ever."
Peak blackness. The next morning, Spotify streams for the song skyrocketed 243 percent for the ATL hip-hop trio.
