Like many of us who have a thing for the trap life, Donald Glover is a mega-fan of Migos. The actor continued to showed his love for the ATL rap trio's "Bad and Boujee" smash backstage at the Golden Globes, comparing them to one of history's most iconic bands.

"I think they're The Beatles of this generation and I don't think they get a lot of respect beyond Atlanta," Glover professed via Vulture. "That song ['Bad and Boujee'] is just fly. There's no better song to have sex to."

The actor also explained to reporters how he got FX on board with Atlanta. "The best things just can't be explained. I just Trojan Horsed it," he said. "I told FX the show was something it wasn't until we got there and then hoped it would be enjoyable." 

Glover's shoutout to Migos during his Golden Globes acceptance speech for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy for Atlanta quickly became a viral moment. "And I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making 'Bad and Boujee,'" he said. "Like, that's the best song...ever." We totally agree.

The actor also snagged the award for Best Actor in a TV Comedy. Click here for the full winners list.
