Blood Orange – “Chamakay” | Music Video

After providing his writing and production skills to projects by Solangé Knowles and the recently reformed original Sugababes line-up Mutya Keisha Siobhan amongst a plethora of other artists, Devin Hynes aka Blood Orange is gearing up to release his forthcoming solo studio album Cupid Deluxe later this year and today brings us an official video for his lead single “Chamakay” which was shot in Guyana by Adam Bainbridge. The singer-songwriter and producer takes his unique dancing skills to the streets for the entertaining visual which was captured on his first trip to his mother’s place of birth.

“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.
The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band “Chairlift”. Special thanks to Yulandi, Tyrese Gomes, Samantha Urbani, The Crandons & Adam Bainbridge.

This is the first single from my new Blood Orange album titled “Cupid Deluxe”. Enjoy.” – Blood Orange.
