Dev Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange, presents the new video for album song Chamakay. In it, Hynes explores his South American roots by visiting his mother’s hometown, Georgetown, Guyana. The video, directed by Adam Bainbridge under the name Kindness, shows Hynes enjoying the local life and meeting some family members for the very first time.
Bainbridge paired the colorful scenes with Hynes’ smooth dance moves to fit the tropical undertones of the song. The track features backing vocals from Caroline Polachek (of Chairlift, not present in the video), and is the first single off Blood Orange’s upcoming album, Cupid Deluxe.
