MUSIC: Stream Two Dev Hynes Demos Written for Britney Spears
Creative genius Dev Hynes crafts some pretty stellar tunes under his moniker Blood Orange, but when he’s not busy with that, he’s writing hits for the likes of Sky Ferreira, Solange, and a slew of others.
Today, he’s shared two ill-fated demo tracks he wrote for Britney Spears and a demo of what would become Ferreira’s hit song ‘Everything Is Embarrassing’.
MUSIC: Blood Orange - West Drive
With Blood Orange's Cupid Deluxe album now available, Dev Hynes has chosen to liberate material that didn’t make it onto the project.
The British artist revealed that there are literally seven versions of the on-hand song, “West Drive,” with this one featuring additional vocals from familiar friend, Samantha Urbani.
MUSIC: Blood Orange - You’re Not Good Enough (Lyric Video)
'You’re Not Good Enough’ is the undeniably smooth second single from Dev Hynes’ second album under the Blood Orange moniker.
The 80s inspired jam, which features Friends front-woman Samantha Urbani, is a promising taste of the LP entitled Cupid Deluxe (due November 12).
MUSIC: Blood Orange x Samantha Urbani - Hurt U
Devonté Hynes aka Blood Orange is ridiculously good at covers. After recently uploading a cover of Drake’s ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’ onto Soundcloud, under the description “Havin’ a Laff While Girlfriend Samantha is Asleep on a Wednesday night,” he’s gone and done it again.
But this time, the track of choice is ‘Hurt U’, originally by Babyface and Toni ‘Unbreak My Heart’ Braxton.
#MUSIC: SOLANGE | DON’T LET ME DOWN
Too good! Today’s jam is off of Solange's recently released TRUE EP - “Don’t Let Me Down.” Produced by Dev Hynes (surprise surprise), Solange tells Rap-Up the song “is my favorite because it really encompasses a few different elements for me that are really personal.”
