  • Lyrics
  • On July 11, 2018 Childish Gambino released a summer pack of two breezy seasonal songs that speak of the season ahead of his headline set at London's Lovebox festival. This dreamy ode to summer love was one of them.

    You feel like summertime (oh, yes you do)
    You took this heart of mine (you know you did)
    You'll be my Valentine (Valentine)
    In the summer (in the summer)

    Valentine's Day is normally celebrated on February 14, but Childish Gambino wants to celebrates his love for his girl in the sunshine season as she feels like summertime.
  • This song was co-written and co-produced by Childish Gambino and his long-term collaborator Ludwig Goransson, the same creative team behind "This Is America."
