GOD BLESS MY MATES. This morning I woke up from a 7 hour sleep to find this nugget from Blood Orange on my wall. For the longest time I have been wishing that old mate would make some more of his own songs and stop collaborating – and ta-fucking-da: Chamakay.
Not only is it pretty yummy in your ear drums, the video is also really pleasing to watch. It somehow reminds me areas I traveled through Florida. As much as I have no interest in moving to Florida (no offense Florida) but this makes me want to pack my bags and go to wherever old mate is placing himself – where the lighting is perfect, the colours wonderfully washed and you feel like you might just be viewing life from a really old/ beautiful camera.
I’d be really happy if this was the beginning of many-many-many more Devonté Hynes songs to come.
Let’s will that to happen.
