morning jam xx: Blood Orange “Chamakay”

blood orange

How much to I love Dev Hynes? Let me count the ways. This man makes such stellar music, and this music video is incredible. Dev Hynes stated about the video:

“I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time, the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting.”

“Chamakay” is our first taste of the new Blood Orange album Cupid Deluxe and features the gorgeous vocals of Caroline Polachek from Chairlift. The epic music video is directed by Adam Bainbridge who you may know as Kindness. If this is your experience hearing/seeing Blood Orange how can you not have a major music crush? Don’t even get me started on those brilliant dance moves! What a babe, I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album. You can buy “Chamakay” on iTunes now for listening on repeat here!
