Blood Orange: "Chamakay"

Artists that have special stories behind certain songs are my favorite, and Dev Hynes of Blood Orange is one of those people. His new video for "Chamakay," the first single from his upcoming album Cupid Deluxe, contains one of those stories. "Chamakay" shows the trip that Dev took to Guyana to visit his 92-year-old grandfather, who he was finally meeting for the first time. The visuals of the town where his mother is from fit perfectly alongside the new tune, a smooth slow-jam that also features vocals from Chairlift's Caroline Polachek, and Dev Hynes' amazing Michael Jackson-esque dance moves, captured by Kindness.
