I don’t know about you guys, but pretty much the only thing I’ve been listening to for the past week has been Drake‘s amazing ’80s-inspired “Hold On, We’re Going Home”. The track came completely out of left field but actually raised my anticipation for the R&B singer/rapper’s upcoming Nothing Was the Same to new heights. Hopefully there’s more like that on it.
Anyway, star-maker extraordinaire Dev Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange was recently (well, last night, maybe) “HAVIN’ A LAFF WHILE SAMANTHA [WAS] ASLEEP” and decided to give the track a go. Probably recorded in one take through a laptop, it’s an incredibly rough recording, but one that still evidences that Mr. Hynes is currently having a moment. And that guitar solo in the track’s last third? So great.
Luckily, he’s made the track a free download, and you can listen and cop it below. It’ll make the wait for Cupid Deluxe, his next album just that much shorter.
