Swoooooon! First, I am a complete sucker for the bass in this song. Second, if you regularly read this blog you know that my heart beats for the work of Devonté Hynes, aka Blood Orange. After a streak of producing incredible records for other people, he is a back with a new album, Cupid Deluxe, due out November 18th!
“You’re Not Good Enough” is the second single from the album following the brilliant “Chamakay”. The new song features vocals from Friends frontwoman and my friend-crush Samantha Urbani. Blood Orange has an incredible grasp of taking influences from music of the past and creating inventive, storytelling tracks everyone can connect to… and so far the two tracks we’ve heard from Cupid Deluxe are perfect examples. I absolutely cannot wait to hear the rest of the album! You can pre-order the album now on iTunes.
