Less than a year ago, Dev Hynes sent a vibey instrumental to Solange, an instrumental over which she penned Looks Good With Trouble as a prelude to her cover of the former’s Bad Girls off her True EP. An extended version was always something we dreamt of, but not even in our baddest dreams we dared to imagine it would have Kendrick Lamar featuring on it.
Solange and Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) strike again after the infectuous Losing You with Lovers In The Parking Lot - we can’t wait for her new album/7-track EP True that’s dropping next week via Terrible Records. Would a Beyoncé collab be too much of a hassle?
The person responsible behind this amazing Destiny’s Child remix, the gifted sound-of-the-future-forecaster Cyril Hahn, just released another perfectly re-imagined . The bass is oh so present, with Solange’s vocals being chopped to something almost club-friendly - a futuristic pop jam/gem that sounds even more futuristic in this remixed version.
It sounds/looks like Solange’s musical career is about to finally set off with her new Losing You. She teamed up with Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) for both writing- and production-purposes, and the result is eh, a flawless but interesting pop song. Directed by Melina Matsoukas, out on 12” next month (and digitally today) via Terrible Records.
